I use the iTunes library primarily from another application. Are there any methods, preferably automated, to add music to the iTunes Library — i e the .itl file, not only the .xml — without actually using the iTunes GUI for this? For instance command line alternatives or even third party solutions with privileges in the OS.
I think the audio app Max has some iTunes settings that are not using the add to iTunes folder (which is what I'm using now), but I'm not certain on how that works or even if this could help me. Unfortunately C is not my language so hard to determine the exact methodology from the > source code https://github.com/sbooth/Max/tree/master. Probably a dead end anyway.
I have feeling there isn't a good method, but sometimes you miss the obvious solution.
