Build Status


Welcome to the iOpenSong project.

This project aims to implement a native iPad application that can read and manage OpenSong files.

What is OpenSong?

OpenSong is a free, open-source software application created to manage lyrics, chords, lead sheets, overheads, computer projection, and more.

OpenSong releases are available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux operating systems.

Download the full application for free and give it a try!

Screenshots / More Infos

Visit the AppStore site for screenshots and more info on the current release.

Getting Started

Cocoa dependencies are handled using CocoaPods. This is available as a Ruby Gem.

To install all required Gems and Pods run:

gem install bundler
bundle install
pod install

:warning: Remember to open the resulting iOpenSongs.xcworkspace file instead of iOpenSongs.xcodeproj

Everything else is included, except the icon set. The icons used can be purchased here:

You can also change the icons in your own project if you cannot build because of the missing icons.

I will ask the author of the icons if it is ok to distribute them with the source files. Until then please buy them, they are really good.


The project has added support for Square's PonyDebugger. So install their Python server and connect with Chrome to
