While browsing the library through the HTTP API, responses sometime consist of
Ref of type
ARTIST. How does one retrieve the artist details from that reference? (I am specially interested in the
musicbrainz_id property of the underlying model instance).
I know I can call
core.library.browse with the URI of the reference; The response will hopefully contain some album references, then calling
core.library.browse on one of those will contain a track list where the artist model is populated. Is there a less hacky way of doing?
Does it make sense to extend the API with a command like
core.library.get that returns a model object from a given URI?
