Flat is a pure-Python 2D drawing library "for creating and manipulating digital forms of fine arts. [...] It grew out of the needs for generative design, architecture and art." exports to SVG and so easily embeds in a jupyter notebook (`display(SVG(page.svg())`). I have been looking for something like this forever, it's a little quirky but seems too good to be true

So, I've imported ~25Gb of music from the Free Music Archive on open.audio using this method.

It worked beautifully, and it's now available for the whole #Funkwhale federation. Follow this library from your Funkwhale instance and you'll have access to it:

open.audio/federation/music/li

You can also visit open.audio/library/ directly to listen to all this new content! (you don't need an account ;)

Life hack if an oAuth app asks for too many permissions on your GitHub profile, just remove (parts of) the "scope" parameter. Not sure why this isn't a built-in feature, tbh. Also works on some other websites with oAuth.
