Digital Music Stand

Build Status

A simple cross-platform browser-based pdfjs-based viewer to display and search music sheets.

  • A single binary including all assets.
  • Usage is similar to SublimeText. Press P and perform a fuzzy search.
  • Not database required
  • Shortcuts 1,2 to scroll to previous/next page using a programmable foot pedal.
  • Unobtrusive design
  • Upload PDF when enabled
  • Add sheets via simple file naming
  • Use a YAML format to add whole songbooks and complex sheets

DEMO

See http://demo-digitalmusicstand.patwie.com/ for a subset of the Mutopia Project which are released under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike.

Handling

Press p and then type monlgiht3 (with typos). You can use the arrow keys (up/down) to navigate. But for now select Sonata No. 14 Moonlight (3rd Movement: Presto Agitato) and press the enter key. To scroll to the next page use the right arrow key (or the key 2).

Shortcuts

h
opens help dialog
p
opens prompt for a query
u
opens dialog to upload pdf (when enabled)
enter
loads select sheet
esc
closes all modal dialogs
arrow key down
selects next entry in result list
arrow key up
selects previous entry in result list
arrow key right or key '2'
scrolls to next page
arrow key left or key '1'
scrolls to previous page

The short cuts 1 and 2 are for a programmable foot pedal

Get it

Download from the release page. The single binary contains all files.

Or build it yourself

Or build it yourself:

git clone https://github.com/PatWie/digitalmusicstand.git
cd digitalmusicstand
./release.sh

Usage

./digitalmusicstand --sheets /path/to/pdfs --listen :3000

The files in the sheet directoy need to follow the convention interpret_title.pdf. Whitespaces should be replaced by '-'.

Point your browser to http://localhost:3000

Add Songbooks

Alternatively, the YAML format can be used to add songbooks or complex sheets.

Example 1 (Songbook):

# content of The_Big_Book_of_Jazz.yml
path: The_Big_Book_of_Jazz.pdf
artist: Various Artists
title: The Big Book of Jazz
songs:
    - artist: Artist 1
      title: Song 1
      pages: [2, 3]
    - artist: Artist 2
      title: Song 2
      pages: [4, 5, 6, 5, 6]
    - title: The Big Book of Jazz (Full book)

Example 2 (single sheet):

# content of Let_it_be.yml
path: Let_it_be.pdf
artist: The Beatles
title: Let It Be
  • Each song is added to the sheet list with its artist name and title. (see Example 1)
  • The page numbers define the used pages of the PDF and their ordering. (see Song 1 and Song 2)
  • If no page information for a song is provided, the complete pdf is used. (see Example 1)
  • If no artist name for a song is provided, the artist name of the head is used. (useful for single artist songbooks)
  • If no songs are provided, the head (artist anme and title) is used for a single sheet. (see Example 2)
  • Subfolders are allowed in path.

To activate this functionality use the --parse-yaml flag:

./digitalmusicstand --parse-yaml --sheets /path/to/pdfs --listen :3000
