CMME early music notation editor/viewer

This is the code for the graphical early music transcription tool developed as part of the Computerized Mensural Music Editing Project, in use at

NB: This is some legacy-ass Java code, cobbled together over many years. I hope eventually to ditch it and rewrite from the ground up as a web app.


Use ANT. The default task in build.xml compiles JARs into the dist/ directory.

Signing JARs (I hate Java):

  • put new .pfx in dist/cert
  • update dist/ with .pfx name and alias (list aliases with keytool -list -keystore dist/cert/<PFXFILE> -storetype pkcs12, change alias with keytool -changealias -alias '<ORIGINAL_ALIAS>' -destalias '<NEW_ALIAS>' -keystore dist/cert/<PFXFILE> -storetype pkcs12)
  • ant generate-keystore
  • ant sign-libs
  • ant dist-applet


The editor and viewer scripts execute the JAR files built in the dist/ directory by ANT. When the program is run this way, the default location for CMME music files is dist/data/music. The sample music data included with the code can be copied over from the build/ dir. A more extensive collection of music files is available in the cmme-music Git repository. To use these scores with the distribution version of the software, place the cmme-music repo in the dist/data/music directory:

git clone dist/data/music


What are those?
