See VexABC in action and try it
- VexABC is a work in progress, which means that many features of the ABC music standard are incomplete or completely missing
- Many of the basic constructs and features of the ABC music standard are already working
- See the VexABC tests to find out features implemented and working
- Currently, only one voice and a single stave can be used
- Multi-voice and multi-stave (system) support will be implemented eventually
- The current VexFlow API imposes some restrictions on how notation can be rendered
- Clefs, key signatures and time signatures can be rendered only at the beginning of a measure
- Voltas (e.g. variant endings) can only begin and end on measure boundaries
- Slurs are not supported
- Grace notes are not supported
- Some ABC decorations can not be rendered yet
- VexABC aims to implement ABC music standard 2.1
- VexFlow (latest GIT master branch) to render the notation
- PEG.js (latest GIT master branch) for parsing ABC notation text
- jQuery 1.8
- QUnit 1.10.0 for running unit tests
- Twitter Bootstrap 2.2 is used in the web pages for tests
