Subject: Please add support for fuzzy searches
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 423b
The MusicBrainz API does support fuzzy searches thanks to Lucene. Unfortunately, WebService-MusicBrainz forces exact matches by always adding double quotes around the query parameter. See for instance http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/artist?fmt=json&query=artist:"ploceba~" vs http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/artist?fmt=json&query=artist:ploceba~ It would be nice to add a way to support fuzzy searches in WebService-MusicBrainz.
