Titelouze

Bertrand Bordage © 2011-2012

This application is a framework for LilyPond, an open-source music engraving software. Its goal is to provide an easy way to create large music books.

Requirements

Name Version
Python 2.7.2
LilyPond 2.14.2

Installation

  1. Install the Requirements
  2. sudo pip install titelouze

Using

This is just a regular Python library. Import everything using from titelouze import * and create LilyPond scores easily using our (uncomplete) list of instruments. Regular LilyPond contexts (bookparts, scores, staves, ...) are also available.

To see a demonstration, launch ./example.py to generate a test file called example.ly and its PDF example.pdf.

Documentation

There is not much to say about Titelouze, since this project is still a draft. But this is already quite powerful for such a simple library.

I strongly recommand you read ./example.py. There is a lot of comments so it can be read as a tiny tutorial.

Future

For sure : a Django application to easily include scores to the database of your Django project.

Maybe : a small user-friendly GUI.

Contributing
