Switch between two iTunes Libraries

Another cool trick.

If you want to have two iTunes libraries (for example, a large library on an external drive and a small library on a local drive), the following will let you switch between them before starting up iTunes...

Here's how -

In Terminal, go to the local iTunes folder, and move aside the original iTunes Library and iTunes Music folders:
  • $ cd Music/iTunes/
  • $ mv iTunes\ Library iTunes_Library_lcl
  • $ mv iTunes\ Music iTunes_Music_lcl
  • $ ln –s iTunes_Library_lcl iTunes\ Library
  • $ ln –s iTunes_Music_lcl iTunes\ Music

Complete stuff
