LilyPond – Notação musical para todos


LilyPond

LilyPond é um programa de gravação de música, dedicado a produzir partituras de alta qualidade possíveis. Traz a estética da música tradicionalmente gravada para impressões de computador. LilyPond é software livre e parte do Projeto GNU.

Partituras bonitas

LilyPond é uma ferramenta poderosa e flexível para tarefas de gravação de todos os tipos, por exemplo música clássica (como o exemplo acima de J.S. Bach), notação complexa, música antiga, música moderna, tablatura, música vocal, lead sheets, materiais educativos, projetos orquestrais grandes, saída personalizada e até mesmo gráficos Schenker.

Introdução

Nosso objetivo

flat-design

A LilyPond surgiu quando dois músicos quiseram ir além da aparência sem alma da partitura impressa por computador. Os músicos preferem ler belas músicas, então por que os programadores não poderiam escrever softwares para produzir peças impressas elegantes?

O resultado é um programa que cria belas partituras seguindo as melhores tradições da gravura de música clássica. Ele cuida dos detalhes do layout programaticamente, permitindo que compositores, transcritores e editores se concentrem na música, em vez de melhorar a saída padrão de seu software. Os artistas receberão partes que os deixarão se concentrar em tocar música em vez de lê-la.


Recursos

Excelente gravação clássica

flat-design

O LilyPond permite que os músicos produzam partituras elegantes e fáceis de ler. Sua comunidade de desenvolvedores gastou milhares de horas desenvolvendo softwares poderosos de gravação de músicas que resultam em músicas lindamente gravadas. Todas as configurações de estilo, designs de fontes e algoritmos do LilyPond foram inspirados pela melhor música gravada à mão. A saída de LilyPond tem a mesma aparência forte, equilibrada e elegante que as partituras clássicas mais bem gravadas. Isto é explicado mais adiante em nosso Ensaios.

Entrada de texto

Tudo é explícito

O LilyPond processa a entrada de texto, que contém todas as informações sobre o conteúdo da sua partitura e pode ser facilmente lida por qualquer ser humano ou outro programa. Não há configurações obscuras escondidas atrás de itens de menu e armazenamento de arquivos binários.

Leia mais sobre esse conceito em Entrada de texto.

Os ajustes são robustos e rastreáveis

Se você tiver que alterar alguma coisa no layout, esse ajuste também estará explicitamente visível no arquivo de entrada em formato legível, assim você sempre poderá refazer o que você fez. Se você acidentalmente quebrar qualquer coisa, você pode facilmente reverter ou modificar qualquer decisão sem estar à mercê de uma função Desfazer.

Arquivos de texto são à prova de falhas e futuros

Arquivos de texto são muito robustos contra corrupção de arquivos. E como eles são legíveis para humanos, você sempre poderá interpretá-los mesmo que não tenha acesso aos programas que os criaram.

Gerencie suas partituras com controle de versão

Arquivos de texto são aplicáveis para serem gerenciados pelo controle de versão. Vá em frente e experimente mecanismos infinitos e seletivos de desfazer/refazer e o histórico completo de desenvolvimento de suas partituras. O controle de versão também pode abrir novos fluxos de trabalho (colaborativos) para você.

Usabilidade

Opções de layout efetivas

Gaste menos tempo com ajustes da saída; LilyPond obtém a formatação correta desde o início. Ele determina o espaçamento sozinho e quebra linhas e páginas para fornecer um layout uniforme e apertado. Confrontos entre letras, notas e acordes são resolvidos e legatos e barras de ligação são inclinados para baixo, automaticamente!

Misture música e texto

Coloque fragmentos de música em textos sem recortar e colar fotos. Integre música ao LaTeX ou HTML sem problemas, ou adicione música ao OpenOffice.org e ao LibreOffice com OOoLilyPond. Plugins também estão disponíveis para permitir o código do LilyPond em vários blogs e wikis, possibilitando a colaboração on-line.

Acessibilidade

A entrada baseada em texto também possibilita a gravação de partitura para usuários com deficiências físicas graves. Usuários com destreza prejudicada que não conseguem digitar ou controlar um mouse de computador podem usar software de reconhecimento de fala para editar arquivos LilyPond. Mesmo os usuários que são totalmente cegos podem usar o software de leitura de tela para escrever arquivos LilyPond – uma tarefa impossível em programas de criação de partituras baseados em gráficos. Você pode ver uma partitura espetacular em Exemplos.

Diversidade do editor

Vários desenvolvedores, eles mesmos usuários ativos do LilyPond, escreveram ferramentas especificamente voltadas para tornar o processo de edição de arquivos do LilyPond mais rápido e mais efetivo; você não está vinculado a uma única interface de usuário, mas pode usar ferramentas diferentes para tarefas diferentes. Você pode até usar um editor completo do LilyPond em casa e usar o aplicativo de bloco de notas do seu celular para editar os arquivos em movimento. Para alguns exemplos, veja Edição facilitada.

Design extensível

Gerenciamento fácil de folhas de estilo

Todas as configurações de layout podem ser alteradas para se adequarem ao seu gosto tipográfico pessoal. Assim, você pode escrever facilmente folhas de estilo que mudam todos os aspectos da aparência padrão das partituras da LilyPond. Como estes também são escritos como texto e podem ser armazenados em arquivos separados, você pode simplesmente alternar entre duas folhas de estilo para produzir partituras com uma aparência ou layout completamente diferente. Você deseja imprimir uma partitura em papel A4 e projetá-la com um projetor, um sistema por página? O mecanismo de layout do LilyPond produzirá facilmente ambos a partir da mesma entrada.

Adicione suas próprias funções

Se isso ainda não for suficiente, há sempre a linguagem de script interna Scheme, que pode acessar o mecanismo de layout do LilyPond no mesmo nível que o próprio LilyPond, tornando-se uma ferramenta muito poderosa. Configurações, variáveis e funções estão documentadas no manual de referência do programa.

Processa partituras programaticamente

Os arquivos de entrada do LilyPond podem ser totalmente editados ou até gerados por programas e scripts. Isso pode ser usado, por exemplo, para composição algorítmica. Mas você também pode acessar o conteúdo musical para análise ou gerenciar fragmentos de entrada em um banco de dados. Não há limitações, exceto sua imaginação.

Crie novas ferramentas usando o LilyPond

Como o LilyPond não é um programa de interface gráfica monolítico, e sim uma ferramenta de linha de comando, ele também pode ser usado em outros aplicativos. Desta forma, é possível equipar ferramentas como, por exemplo, aplicativos web com poder de gravação de LilyPond. Já existem várias ferramentas on-line usando o LilyPond.

Ambiente

frescobaldi-lilypond-editor-small

Suporte excelente

O LilyPond funciona em todas as plataformas populares: GNU/Linux, MacOS X e Windows. LilyPond vem com uma extensa documentação e centenas de arquivos de exemplo. Existe uma comunidade de usuários ativos respondendo perguntas na lista de discussão lilypond-user, oferecendo ajuda amigável. O tempo de resposta é geralmente muito curto, e soluções frequentemente brilhantes para problemas relatados são desenvolvidas. Graças à estreita interação com a equipe de desenvolvimento, tais soluções são regularmente incluídas no próprio LilyPond. Leia mais em Comunidade.

Software livre

O LilyPond pode ser baixado gratuitamente! Sim - é grátis. Obtenha-o na página de download.

Também é livre (como em “liberdade de expressão”). Ele vem com código-fonte e permissão para alterá-lo e copiá-lo. Então, você está irritado com um bug, ou anseia por um recurso? Simplesmente adicione você mesmo ou pague a outra pessoa para fazê-lo. Leia mais sobre Liberdade.

Tablatura

LilyPond oferece suporte a notação de tablatura, que pode ser personalizada para se adequar a qualquer instrumento que leia de tablatura. A pauta de tablatura é gerada automaticamente a partir das notas digitadas para a pauta de 5 linhas.

Música vocal

LilyPond é excelente para música vocal de todos os tipos, desde hinos sagrados até ópera. Aqui está um motete medieval com requisitos ligeiramente incomuns. A voz tenor é escrita em uma métrica diferente das outras, mas deve se alinhar como se estivesse na mesma métrica. LilyPond lida com isso com mais elegância. Observe também os incipits com claves no estilo Vaticano, as hastes cortadas indicando notas plicadas, e ligadura sobre de certos grupos de notas.

Partituras principais

É simples criar partituras principais (lead sheets) com melodia, letras, nomes de acordes e escalas. Neste exemplo, você vê alguns dos diagramas de escala predefinidos, mas eles podem ser altamente personalizados para se adaptar a praticamente qualquer situação.

Ainda não está convencido? LilyPond é software livre, concedendo-lhe Liberdade. Se você já tiver se decidido por usar o LilyPond, leia primeiro nossa Entrada de texto.


Liberdade

Software livre

GNU LilyPond é escrito e mantido por uma comunidade de entusiastas. Ele é publicado sob a licença Licença Pública Geral GNU e Licença de Documentação Livre GNU, dando a todos a liberdade de corrigir, modificar e estender o programa. A criação de belas músicas não deveria exigir centenas de dólares de software!

Quais são os benefícios para os usuários?

  • Sem custo: baixe e experimente! O que você tem a perder?
  • Compartilhamento: se você gosta do programa, dê uma cópia para seus amigos, professores, alunos e colegas!
  • Código-fonte disponível: se você está curioso sobre como o LilyPond cria alguma notação, você pode ver exatamente como isso é feito.
  • Extensível: você pode adicionar recursos, corrigir erros e alterar a funcionalidade. Se você não é um programador, pode contratar alguém para realizar essas tarefas.

    Isso pode não parecer atraente para músicos casuais, mas a capacidade de estender software pode ser altamente valiosa para compositores, empresas e acadêmicos sérios.

  • Segurança contra o futuro: se uma empresa comercial for à falência, o que acontece com todas as músicas eletrônicas que dependem de seus produtos? Isso não é uma preocupação com o LilyPond; mesmo que toda a equipe de desenvolvimento abandone (o que é extremamente improvável), o programa ainda estará disponível legalmente para cópia, modificação e distribuição.

Por que os desenvolvedores do LilyPond “doam” seu trabalho livremente?

A maioria de nós vê o desenvolvimento de LilyPond como hobby ou trabalho voluntário. Então, essa pergunta está realmente perguntando “por que as pessoas se voluntariam”?

  • Diversão: trabalhar para atingir um objetivo pode ser divertido, especialmente quando você trabalha em equipe!
  • Objetivos compartilhados: todos queremos belas partituras, mas poucas pessoas têm a experiência (e ninguém tem tempo!) para criar um programa que possa lidar com todas as situações. Trabalhando em conjunto – uma pessoa melhora o código de barra de ligação automática, outra pessoa melhora a forma de legatos e uma terceira pessoa escreve a documentação que explica como usar esses recursos – podemos atingir nossa meta com apenas uma fração do esforço individual.
  • “Cultura de presente”: o movimento de Software Livre criou muitos grandes projetos de software, como GNU/Linux, Mozilla Firefox e Battle for Wesnoth. Tendo se beneficiado desses projetos, alguns desenvolvedores querem “devolver” para a comunidade.
  • Experiência de trabalho: contribuir para projetos de software livre é uma ótima maneira de praticar programação, redação de documentação, tradução de documentação ou design. Essa experiência ajudou alguns desenvolvedores a obter ofertas de emprego ou bolsas de estudo.

Produções usando o LilyPond

Aqui você pode ler sobre pessoas que realmente usam o LilyPond em suas produções, seja para performances de sua música ou como partituras publicadas.

Concertos

As gravuras do LilyPond foram usadas para apresentações em todo o mundo. Alguns destaques:

  • Aurelien Bello fez o arranjo de uma versão do Der Rosenkavalier de Richard Strauss para quatro cantores e uma orquestra de câmara de treze músicos. Este foi encomendado pela Orquestra Filarmônica de Berlim, cujos membros se apresentarão como artistas em 2 e 6 de abril no Festspielhaus, em Baden-Baden, e em 26 de abril em Philharmonie (großer Saal), Berlim. Temos o prazer de ver músicos de tal reputação se apresentando com as partituras do LilyPond – e eles estão supostamente muito felizes com elas.

    Aurélien também reorquestrou Der Ring des Nibelungen de Richard Wagner para uma versão de 100 minutos para crianças. Escrito para uma orquestra sinfônica padrão, mas com um elenco reduzido de cantores, foi apresentado pela Orquestra Sinfônica da Rádio de Berlim em abril de 2014 no Atze Musiktheater, Berlim. O maestro foi Heiko Matthias Förster.

  • Joe Smeets criou partituras para o livro infantil Zing Mee (Sing along) por Annie M.G. publicado por Querido – ISBN 9789045106205; partituras de ensaio de coral para a tradução holandesa de Saint Nicolas de Benjamin Britten, apresentada por Muziektheater Hollands Diep em 2011; www.muziektheaterhollandsdiep.nl. Ele também trabalhou na partitura e partes de um arranjo de Boris Godunov de Mussorgsky para quarteto de sopro, piano e percussão que foi realizado em 2014, novamente por Muziektheater Hollands Diep.
  • Uma edição crítica de Enea nel Lazio (1760) de Tommaso Traetta, série de ópera com libreto de Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi, em quatro partes: Part um Part dois Part três Part quatro criada por Luca Rossetto Casel por sua tese de Ph.D.
  • O Quadros de uma Exposição de Mussorgsky, foi reorquestrado e conduzido por Aurelien Bello com o Junge Philharmonie Brandenburg em outubro de 2011 e abril de 2012.

Orm Finnendahl, professor de Composição, Universidade de Música e Artes Cênicas Frankfurt

“Embora eu não conheça [o LilyPond] muito bem ainda, eu estou *muito impressionado. Eu usei o programa para inserir um moteto de Josquin Desprez na notação mensural e não há dúvidas de que o lilypond supera todos os outros programas de notação com relação à velocidade, facilidade de uso e visual!”

darius-blasband

Darius Blasband, compositor (Bruxelas, Bélgica)

“[..após o primeiro ensaio da orquestra,] recebi inúmeros elogios sobre a qualidade das partituras. Ainda mais importante, enquanto a LilyPond fornece inúmeros meios para melhorar a aparência de suas partituras, o que a orquestra obteve de mim é basicamente a saída bruta e intocada.”

Kieren MacMillan, compositor (Toronto, Canadá)

“obrigado e elogios para a equipe de desenvolvimento por seu trabalho incrível. Eu nunca vi nada que se aproximasse da saída que recebi da LilyPond – estou totalmente confiante de que minhas necessidades de publicação musical serão atendidas além das minhas expectativas usando esse ótimo aplicativo. […] basicamente a saída de LilyPond não ajustada […] possui melhor aparência que as publicações mais recentes de publicações ‘professionais’ com as quais eu comparei (q.v. praticamente qualquer resultado da Warner Bros., e até mesmo muitos das mais recentes por ‘editoras antigas’). […]” “Bata isso, Finale/Sibelius/Igor/que seja!!!”

Chris Cannam, programador principal do projeto RoseGarden

“LilyPond é obviamente um super gorila [de ótima composição de músicas].”

Chris Snyder, Adoro Music Publishing

“A forma como a música é inserida para LilyPond faz com que eu pense de uma maneira mais musical – houve momentos em que eu fiquei perplexo a respeito de como dizer a Lily para gravar algo, apenas para perceber que mesmo se eu fizesse isso exatamente como o compositor queria, a música seria confusa para ler. O LilyPond torna muito mais fácil para mim trabalhar no meu editor duplo + função de gravador.”

“Eu tenho usado o LilyPond exclusivamente para o meu novo negócio de publicação de música. Praticamente sem exceção, todo compositor se impressionou com a qualidade da gravura quando apresentada com as provas de sua música prestes a ser publicada. Eu mereço um pouco do crédito por isso – eu gasto muito tempo aprimorando a saída, especialmente ligaduras (principalmente em acordes) –, mas LilyPond me dá um excelente ponto de partida, uma interface muito intuitiva e a capacidade de modificar absolutamente qualquer coisa se assim eu quiser alocar o tempo. Estou convencido de que nenhum produto comercial pode chegar perto.”

David Bobroff, Trombone baixo, Orquestra Sinfônica da Islândia

“Eu acho que o LilyPond é ótimo […] Quanto mais eu aprendo sobre o LilyPond, mais eu gosto!”

Vaylor Trucks, Guitarrista (Sim, parente de)

“Estou superimpressionado com o LilyPond […]”

“ESSE É O MELHOR PROGRAMA DE TODOS!!!”

“MUITO obrigado a todos vocês por seu trabalho árduo e dedicação!”

Nicolas Sceaux, contribuidor do Mutopia

“Eu tinha uma espécie de relacionamento de ódio e paixão com isso. Paixão porque a primeira nota que eu vi foi tão incrível! A descrição de LilyPond repousa sobre sua beleza, é muito modesta! […] como LilyPond está ficando cada vez melhor, e à medida que observo mais de perto como as coisas são feitas no esquema, tenho menos e menos frustrações. Enfim, o que quero dizer é: obrigado por fornecer LilyPond, é muito bom.”

Werner Lemberg, Maestro no Teatro de Coblença, Alemanha, e distinto GNU Hacker

“De qualquer forma, o LilyPond faz um trabalho impressionantemente bom!”

Paul Davis, desenvolvedor de JACK e Ardour

“Eu acho que [LilyPond é] um programa incrível, e produz uma saída maravilhosa. Quando li uma entrevista sobre isso no ano passado, fiquei entusiasmado com vários amigos meus sobre o seu potencial.”

Dr. Mika Kuuskankare, pesquisador na Academia Sibelius na Finlândia, compositor e autor de Expressive Notation Package (ENP)

“Tenho o mais profundo respeito para com a LilyPond e com seus criadores e mantenedores, pois sei por experiência própria como esse tipo de software pode ser difícil.”

David Cameron, Músico, typesetter profissional e usuário SCORE a muito tempo

“Meus sinceros agradecimentos a todos que contribuem para este projeto. Eu era um grande usuário de SCORE para grandes editoras nos anos 90, mas eu sinto que a LilyPond finalmente torna possível para mim obter exatamente o que eu quero na página, especialmente quando não é uma prática "padrão".”

Entrada de texto

“Compilando” música

nereid-shot-small

(clique para ampliar)

LilyPond é um sistema compilado: é executado em um arquivo de texto descrevendo a música. A saída resultante é visualizada na tela ou impressa. De certa forma, o LilyPond é mais semelhante a uma linguagem de programação do que o software de edição de partituras gráficas.

Você não escreve músicas arrastando notas de uma barra de ferramentas gráfica e colocando-as em uma partitura de atualização dinâmica; você escreve música digitando texto. Este texto é interpretado (ou “compilado”) pelo LilyPond, que produz partituras lindamente gravadas.

As pessoas acostumadas a interfaces gráficas podem precisar aprender uma nova maneira de trabalhar, mas os resultados definitivamente valem a pena!

Nota: Apresentamos uma rápida visão geral da nossa entrada de texto – não é tão complicado quanto parece! Não se preocupe em entender todos os detalhes nesses exemplos; nossa documentação para iniciantes abrange tudo em um ritmo muito mais gradual.

É tão simples quanto A B C

As notas são codificadas com letras e números. Comandos especiais são inseridos com barras invertidas.

text-input-1-annotatetext-input-1-output

As alterações são feitas com nomes diferentes: adicione -is para sustenido e -es para bemol (nomes de notas holandesas, outros idiomas estão disponíveis). LilyPond descobre onde colocar os acidentes.

text-input-2-annotatetext-input-2-output

Música popular

Coloque acordes e letras juntos para obter uma partitura principal:

text-input-pop-annotatetext-input-pop-output

Partes orquestrais

O arquivo de entrada contém as notas da peça musical. Partituras e partes podem ser feitas a partir de um único arquivo de entrada, de modo que a alteração de uma nota sempre afeta a pontuação e as partes. Para poder incluir a mesma música em vários lugares, a música é atribuída a uma “variável” (um nome).

text-input-parts-both-annotate

Esta variável é então usada em uma única parte (aqui transposta, com restos condensados abrangendo várias medidas):

text-input-parts-single-annotatetext-input-parts-single-output

A mesma variável é usada na partitura completa (aqui na altura de concerto):

text-input-score-annotatetext-input-score-output

Documentação para iniciante

Sabemos que muitos usuários acham essa maneira de inserir músicas um pouco estranha. Por esse motivo, escrevemos uma extensa documentação para ajudar novos usuários, começando com o Aprendizagem. O Manual de Aprendizagem é o melhor lugar para começar, já que muitas perguntas são respondidas antes de aparecerem!

Ocasionalmente, novos usuários ficam desnecessariamente confusos por alguns aspectos do comportamento de LilyPond. Por favor, leia este manual antes de duvidar se o LilyPond está funcionando corretamente.

Informações mais detalhadas estão disponíveis em Manuais.

Ben Lemon, um usuário do LilyPond, criou uma série de tutoriais em vídeo em seu blog e que se destina a novos usuários.

Ambientes de edição facilitada

lilykde-screenshot-small

(clique para ampliar)

O LilyPond está principalmente preocupado em produzir partituras gravadas de alta qualidade; criar uma interface gráfica do usuário (GUI) nos distrairia dessa meta. No entanto, existem outros projetos destinados a facilitar a criação de arquivos de entrada do LilyPond.

Alguns ambientes de edição incluem realce de sintaxe, conclusão automática de comandos e modelos pré-fabricados. Outros programas realmente fornecem uma interface gráfica que permite a manipulação direta de uma pontuação gráfica. Para mais informações, consulte Edição facilitada.

Executando na linha de comando

Nota: Se você estiver satisfeito com as instruções da GUI abaixo, ignore estas instruções.

MacOS X na linha de comando

A maneira mais conveniente de executar scripts lilypond é configurando os scripts “auxiliares” de sua preferência.

  1. Crie um diretório para armazenar esses scripts,
    mkdir -p ~/bin
    cd ~/bin
    
  2. Crie um arquivo chamado lilypond que contém
    #!/bin/bash
    exec DIR/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/lilypond "$@"
    

    Nota: DIR geralmente será /Applications/

  3. Crie arquivos similares lilypond-book, convert-ly e quaisquer outros scripts que você quiser usar, substituindo o bin/lilypond por bin/convert-ly (ou outro nome de programa).
  4. Torne o arquivo executável,
    chmod u+x lilypond
    
  5. Agora, adicione esse diretório ao seu “path”. Modifique (ou crie) um arquivo chamado .profile em seu diretório home de forma que ele contenha
    export PATH=$PATH:~/bin
    

    Esse arquivo deve terminar com uma linha em branco.

Invocando scripts individuais

Os scripts – tais como lilypond-book, convert-ly, abc2ly e até mesmo lilypond em si – estão incluídos no arquivo .app para MacOS X.

Scripts também podem ser executados da linha de comando invocando-os diretamente:

path/to/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/lilypond

O mesmo é verdadeiro para todos outros scripts naquele diretório, tal como lilypond-book e convert-ly.

Compilando um arquivo

Nota: These instructions assume that you are using the LilyPond application. If you are using any of the programs described in Edição facilitada, consult the documentation for those programs should you have any problems.

Step 1. Create your ‘.ly’ file

Double click the LilyPond.app, an example file will open.

Learning_Macos_welcome

From the menus along the top left of your screen, select File > Save.

Learning_Macos_Save_menu

Choose a name for your file, for example ‘test.ly’.

Learning_Macos_Save_file_with_name

Step 2. Compile (with LilyPad)

From the same menus, select Compile > Typeset.

Learning_Macos_Typeset_menu

A new window will open showing a progress log of the compilation of the file you have just saved.

Learning_Macos_Compiling_log

Step 3. View output

Once the compilation has finished, a PDF file will be created with the same name as the original file and will be automatically opened in the default PDF viewer and displayed on your screen.

Learning_Macos_pdf_output

Other commands

To create new files for LilyPond, begin by selecting File > New

Learning_Macos_New_menu

or File > Open to open and edit existing files you have saved previously.

Step 2. Compile

To turn your LilyPond file into a music score, you need to compile it. This can be done a number of ways – using drag and drop, with right-click, double-clicking or using the command line (a DOS box). We’ll look at the first three to start with.

1. Drag-and-drop the file directly onto the LilyPond icon on the desktop.

DragDrop

Not much will seem to happen, but after a short while, you should see two new files on your desktop – ‘test.log’ and ‘test.pdf’.

2. Right-click on the file and from the pop-up context menu and choose Generate PDF.

GenPDF

3. Or simply double-click the ‘test.ly’.

Step 3. View output

test.pdf’ contains the engraved ‘test.ly’ file. Double-click it and it should open in your PDF viewer:

PDFRead

Other commands

To create a new file, begin by selecting File > New from within any previously created file or File > Open to open and edit any files you have saved before. You can also edit a file by right-clicking it and selecting Edit source.

EditFile

You must save any edits you make before you try to compile your file. If the PDF file is not created or the output is not what you expected, check the log file that will have been created during the compilation attempt for any errors.

BadLog

This log file is overwritten each time you compile your LilyPond file.

If you are viewing your file in a PDF viewer, then you must close the PDF if you wish to try a new compilation as it may fail to create the new PDF while it is still being viewed.

GPL

Licença de software

O GNU LilyPond é publicado sob a Licença Pública Geral GNU. Uma introdução a essa licença e nossos motivos para escolhê-la são dados em Liberdade.

Licença Pública Geral GNU

Version 3, 29 June 2007

 
Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. https://fsf.org/

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble

The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.

The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program—to make sure it remains free software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.

For the developers’ and authors’ protection, the GPL clearly explains that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users’ and authors’ sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to authors of previous versions.

Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of protecting users’ freedom to change the software. The systematic pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.

Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents. States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  1. Definitions.

    “This License” refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.

    “Copyright” also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of works, such as semiconductor masks.

    “The Program” refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this License. Each licensee is addressed as “you”. “Licensees” and “recipients” may be individuals or organizations.

    To “modify” a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an exact copy. The resulting work is called a “modified version” of the earlier work or a work “based on” the earlier work.

    A “covered work” means either the unmodified Program or a work based on the Program.

    To “propagate” a work means to do anything with it that, without permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying, distribution (with or without modification), making available to the public, and in some countries other activities as well.

    To “convey” a work means any kind of propagation that enables other parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.

    An interactive user interface displays “Appropriate Legal Notices” to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2) tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.

  2. Source Code.

    The “source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. “Object code” means any non-source form of a work.

    A “Standard Interface” means an interface that either is an official standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that is widely used among developers working in that language.

    The “System Libraries” of an executable work include anything, other than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an implementation is available to the public in source code form. A “Major Component”, in this context, means a major essential component (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.

    The “Corresponding Source” for a work in object code form means all the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to control those activities. However, it does not include the work’s System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source includes interface definition files associated with source files for the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require, such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those subprograms and other parts of the work.

    The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding Source.

    The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that same work.

  3. Basic Permissions.

    All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.

    You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.

    Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10 makes it unnecessary.

  4. Protecting Users’ Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.

    No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such measures.

    When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work’s users, your or third parties’ legal rights to forbid circumvention of technological measures.

  5. Conveying Verbatim Copies.

    You may convey verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice; keep intact all notices stating that this License and any non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code; keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.

    You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey, and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.

  6. Conveying Modified Source Versions.

    You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

    1. The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it, and giving a relevant date.
    2. The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is released under this License and any conditions added under section 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to “keep intact all notices”.
    3. You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts, regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
    4. If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your work need not make them do so.

    A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work, and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an “aggregate” if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other parts of the aggregate.

  7. Conveying Non-Source Forms.

    You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, in one of these ways:

    1. Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium customarily used for software interchange.
    2. Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
    3. Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord with subsection 6b.
    4. Convey the object code by offering access from a designated place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party) that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
    5. Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no charge under subsection 6d.

    A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be included in conveying the object code work.

    A “User Product” is either (1) a “consumer product”, which means any tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family, or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product, doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular product received by a particular user, “normally used” refers to a typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent the only significant mode of use of the product.

    “Installation Information” for a User Product means any methods, procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because modification has been made.

    If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has been installed in ROM).

    The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a network may be denied when the modification itself materially and adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and protocols for communication across the network.

    Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided, in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly documented (and with an implementation available to the public in source code form), and must require no special password or key for unpacking, reading or copying.

  8. Additional Terms.

    “Additional permissions” are terms that supplement the terms of this License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions. Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by this License without regard to the additional permissions.

    When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work, for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.

    Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:

    1. Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
    2. Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal Notices displayed by works containing it; or
    3. Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
    4. Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or authors of the material; or
    5. Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
    6. Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on those licensors and authors.

    All other non-permissive additional terms are considered “further restrictions” within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is governed by this License along with a term that is a further restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms of that license document, provided that the further restriction does not survive such relicensing or conveying.

    If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating where to find the applicable terms.

    Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions; the above requirements apply either way.

  9. Termination.

    You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third paragraph of section 11).

    However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.

    Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice.

    Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same material under section 10.

  10. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.

    You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However, nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.

  11. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.

    Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.

    An “entity transaction” is a transaction transferring control of an organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered work results from an entity transaction, each party to that transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever licenses to the work the party’s predecessor in interest had or could give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.

    You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.

  12. Patents.

    A “contributor” is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The work thus licensed is called the contributor’s “contributor version”.

    A contributor’s “essential patent claims” are all patent claims owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version, but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For purposes of this definition, “control” includes the right to grant patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of this License.

    Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under the contributor’s essential patent claims, to make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and propagate the contents of its contributor version.

    In the following three paragraphs, a “patent license” is any express agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to sue for patent infringement). To “grant” such a patent license to a party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a patent against the party.

    If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license, and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a publicly available network server or other readily accessible means, then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent license to downstream recipients. “Knowingly relying” means you have actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the covered work in a country, or your recipient’s use of the covered work in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that country that you have reason to believe are valid.

    If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered work and works based on it.

    A patent license is “discriminatory” if it does not include within the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily for and in connection with specific products or compilations that contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement, or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.

    Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.

  13. No Surrender of Others’ Freedom.

    If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.

  14. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.

    Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work, but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License, section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the combination as such.

  15. Revised Versions of this License.

    The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.

    Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General Public License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

    If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Program.

    Later license versions may give you additional or different permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a later version.

  16. Disclaimer of Warranty.

    THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

  17. Limitation of Liability.

    IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

  18. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.

    If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms, reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a copy of the Program in return for a fee.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

 
one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.
Copyright (C) year name of author

This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at
your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but
WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the GNU
General Public License for more details.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
along with this program.  If not, see https://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:

 
program Copyright (C) year name of author
This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type ‘show w’.
This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
under certain conditions; type ‘show c’ for details.

The hypothetical commands ‘show w’ and ‘show c’ should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program’s commands might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an “about box”.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school, if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if necessary. For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see https://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General Public License instead of this License. But first, please read https://www.gnu.org/licenses/why-not-lgpl.html.

Licença de documentação

A documentação do GNU LilyPond é publicada sob a Licença de Documentação Livre GNU. Uma introdução a essa licença e nossos motivos para escolhê-la são dados em Liberdade.

Licença de Documentação Livre GNU 1.1

Version 1.3, 3 November 2008

 
Copyright © 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
https://fsf.org/

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
  1. PREAMBLE

    The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document free in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.

    This License is a kind of “copyleft”, which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.

    We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.

  2. APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS

    This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The “Document”, below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as “you”. You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law.

    A “Modified Version” of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into another language.

    A “Secondary Section” is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document’s overall subject (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them.

    The “Invariant Sections” are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none.

    The “Cover Texts” are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words.

    A “Transparent” copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification is available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text. A copy that is not “Transparent” is called “Opaque”.

    Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only.

    The “Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, “Title Page” means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work’s title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text.

    The “publisher” means any person or entity that distributes copies of the Document to the public.

    A section “Entitled XYZ” means a named subunit of the Document whose title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a specific section name mentioned below, such as “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, “Endorsements”, or “History”.) To “Preserve the Title” of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a section “Entitled XYZ” according to this definition.

    The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no effect on the meaning of this License.

  3. VERBATIM COPYING

    You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.

    You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may publicly display copies.

  4. COPYING IN QUANTITY

    If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the Document’s license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition. Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim copying in other respects.

    If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent pages.

    If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location from which the general network-using public has access to download using public-standard network protocols a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that edition to the public.

    It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.

  5. MODIFICATIONS

    You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:

    1. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section of the Document). You may use the same title as a previous version if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
    2. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five), unless they release you from this requirement.
    3. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modified Version, as the publisher.
    4. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
    5. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications adjacent to the other copyright notices.
    6. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
    7. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover Texts given in the Document’s license notice.
    8. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
    9. Preserve the section Entitled “History”, Preserve its Title, and add to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled “History” in the Document, create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified Version as stated in the previous sentence.
    10. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise the network locations given in the Document for previous versions it was based on. These may be placed in the “History” section. You may omit a network location for a work that was published at least four years before the Document itself, or if the original publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
    11. For any section Entitled “Acknowledgements” or “Dedications”, Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements and/or dedications given therein.
    12. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document, unaltered in their text and in their titles. Section numbers or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
    13. Delete any section Entitled “Endorsements”. Such a section may not be included in the Modified Version.
    14. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled “Endorsements” or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
    15. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.

    If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all of these sections as invariant. To do this, add their titles to the list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version’s license notice. These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.

    You may add a section Entitled “Endorsements”, provided it contains nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various parties—for example, statements of peer review or that the text has been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a standard.

    You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list of Cover Texts in the Modified Version. Only one passage of Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of, you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.

    The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or imply endorsement of any Modified Version.

    You may combine the Document with other documents released under this License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.

    The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single copy. If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but different contents, make the title of each such section unique by adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number. Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.

    In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled “History” in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled “History”; likewise combine any sections Entitled “Acknowledgements”, and any sections Entitled “Dedications”. You must delete all sections Entitled “Endorsements.”

  7. COLLECTIONS OF DOCUMENTS

    You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.

    You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.

  8. AGGREGATION WITH INDEPENDENT WORKS

    A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an “aggregate” if the copyright resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves derivative works of the Document.

    If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of the entire aggregate, the Document’s Cover Texts may be placed on covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form. Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole aggregate.

  9. TRANSLATION

    Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4. Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special permission from their copyright holders, but you may include translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the original versions of these Invariant Sections. You may include a translation of this License, and all the license notices in the Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include the original English version of this License and the original versions of those notices and disclaimers. In case of a disagreement between the translation and the original version of this License or a notice or disclaimer, the original version will prevail.

    If a section in the Document is Entitled “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, or “History”, the requirement (section 4) to Preserve its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual title.

  10. TERMINATION

    You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.

    However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.

    Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice.

    Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, receipt of a copy of some or all of the same material does not give you any rights to use it.

  11. FUTURE REVISIONS OF THIS LICENSE

    The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. See https://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

    Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number. If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions of this License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Document.

  12. RELICENSING

    “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration Site” (or “MMC Site”) means any World Wide Web server that publishes copyrightable works and also provides prominent facilities for anybody to edit those works. A public wiki that anybody can edit is an example of such a server. A “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration” (or “MMC”) contained in the site means any set of copyrightable works thus published on the MMC site.

    “CC-BY-SA” means the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license published by Creative Commons Corporation, a not-for-profit corporation with a principal place of business in San Francisco, California, as well as future copyleft versions of that license published by that same organization.

    “Incorporate” means to publish or republish a Document, in whole or in part, as part of another Document.

    An MMC is “eligible for relicensing” if it is licensed under this License, and if all works that were first published under this License somewhere other than this MMC, and subsequently incorporated in whole or in part into the MMC, (1) had no cover texts or invariant sections, and (2) were thus incorporated prior to November 1, 2008.

    The operator of an MMC Site may republish an MMC contained in the site under CC-BY-SA on the same site at any time before August 1, 2009, provided the MMC is eligible for relicensing.

ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents

To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of the License in the document and put the following copyright and license notices just after the title page:

 
  Copyright (C)  year  your name.
  Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
  under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3
  or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
  with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover
  Texts.  A copy of the license is included in the section entitled ``GNU
  Free Documentation License''.

If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts, replace the “with…Texts.” line with this:

 
    with the Invariant Sections being list their titles, with
    the Front-Cover Texts being list, and with the Back-Cover Texts
    being list.

If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the situation.

If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of free software license, such as the GNU General Public License, to permit their use in free software.

Exemplos minimalistas

O que são “Exemplos minimalistas”?

Um exemplo minimalista é um exemplo do qual nada pdoe ser removido.

Por que criá-los?

  • Quanto mais simples é o exemplo, mais rapidamente os ajudantes em potencial podem entendê-lo e lhe ajudar.
  • Um exemplo minimalista demonstra que você se esforçou para resolver o problema sozinho. Quando as pessoas enviam grandes quantidades de informações, parece que elas não se importam se as ajudamos ou não.
  • Criar um pequeno exemplo ajuda você a entender o que está acontecendo. Muitos relatórios de problemas falsos podem ser evitados ao tentar criar um exemplo minimalista; se você não pode replicar um “erro” em um exemplo minimalista, então o problema provavelmente foi uma compreensão insuficiente do LilyPond, não um erro real!

Como criá-los?

  • Inclua o número de versão com \version.
  • Deixe-o pequeno! Exemplos sobre espaçamento ou layout de página podem exigir muitos compassos de música, mas a maioria dos problemas pode ser reproduzida usando menos de um único compasso.
  • Ao tentar criar um exemplo, tente comentar as seções (% ou %{ … %}) do seu arquivo. Se você puder comentar algo enquanto ainda demonstra a ideia principal, remova o material comentado.
  • Evite usar notas, armaduras ou tempos complicados, a menos que o erro seja sobre o comportamento desses itens.
  • Não use os comandos \override ou \set a menos que o erro seja sobre esses comandos específicos.
  • Opcionalmente, anexe uma imagem mostrando a saída gráfica desejada.

Quão minúsculo eles devem ser?

O código abaixo é um exemplo minimalista?

\version "2.14.1"
\include "english.ly"

\score {
  \new Staff {
    \key d \major
    \numericTimeSignature
    \time 2/4
    <cs' d'' b''>16 <cs' d'' b''>8.
    %% Here: the tie on the D's looks funny
    %% Too tall? Left-hand endpoint is not aligned with the B tie?
    ~
    <cs' d'' b''>8 [ <b d'' a''> ]
  }
}

Bom, não é muito grande, mas um exemplo verdadeiramente minimalista é esse:

\version "2.14.1"
{
  % middle tie looks funny here:
  <c' d'' b''>8. ~ <c' d'' b''>8
}

Muito poucos exemplos minimalistas excedem 10 linhas de código - frequentemente 4 linhas é suficiente para demonstrar o problema!


Relatórios de erros

Se você tiver entrada que resulta em uma falha ou saída errada, então isso é um erro.

Etapa 1: Erros conhecidos

Nós já podemos saber sobre esse erro. Verifique aqui:

https://gitlab.com/lilypond/lilypond/-/issues

Nota: Por favor, NÃO adicione relatórios de erros diretamente ao rastreador de erros. Depois que um problema for adicionado ao rastreador, sinta-se à vontade para adicionar mais informações a esse relatório.

Etapa 2: Criação de um relatório de erro

Se você descobriu um erro que não está listado, por favor nos ajude criando um relatório de erro.

Nota: Só aceitamos relatórios na forma de Exemplos minimalistas. Temos recursos muito limitados, então qualquer exemplo não minimalista será rejeitado. Quase todos os erros podem ser demonstrados em quatro notas ou menos!

Aqui está um exemplo de um bom relatório de erro:

% Accidentals should be printed for only
% the first note in a tie, but this version
% prints flats on both notes.
\version "2.10.1"

\relative c'' {
 bes1 ~
 bes1
}

Etapa 3: Enviando um relatório de erro

Depois de verificar se o problema já não é conhecido e criar um relatório de erro, envie-o para nós!

Etapa 4: Aguarde uma resposta

Uma vez que o seu relatório de erros foi enviado para a lista, o nosso Esquadrão de Erros irá examiná-lo; eles podem pedir mais informações. Você será notificado quando o relatório for adicionado ao rastreador de erros. Por favor, aguarde até 4 dias, pois temos um número limitado de voluntários para esta tarefa.

Depois que um erro for adicionado ao rastreador, você poderá comentar nele para adicionar mais informações. Para ser notificado automaticamente sobre qualquer atividade no “issue” do rastreador, você pode se inscrever clicando no símbolo do envelope ao lado do título da questão.

Ajuda opcional: mostre o comportamento desejado

Uma vez que um “issue” tenha sido adicionado ao rastreador, pode ser muito útil se pudermos ver a saída desejada. Sinta-se à vontade para adicionar código de entrada e/ou imagens (possivelmente criadas com outras ferramentas) que demonstrem como você acredita que deveria se parecer!


Ajude-nos

We need you!

Thank you for your interest in helping us — we would love to see you get involved! Your contribution will help a large group of users make beautifully typeset music.

Even working on small tasks can have a big impact: taking care of them allows experienced developers work on advanced tasks, instead of spending time on those simple tasks.

For a multi-faceted project like LilyPond, sometimes it’s tough to know where to begin. In addition to the avenues proposed below, you can send an e-mail to the lilypond-devel@gnu.org mailing list, and we’ll help you to get started.

Simple tasks

No programming skills required!

  • Mailing list support: answer questions from fellow users. (This may entail helping them navigate the online documentation; in such cases it may sometimes be appropriate to point them to version-agnostic URL paths such as /latest/ or /stable/, which are automatically redirected.)
  • Bug reporting: help users create proper Relatórios de erros, and/or join the Bug Squad to organize Issues.
  • Documentation: small changes can be proposed by following the guidelines for Documentation suggestions.
  • LilyPond Snippet Repository (LSR): create and fix snippets following the guidelines in Adding and editing snippets.
  • Discussions, reviews, and testing: the developers often ask for feedback about new documentation, potential syntax changes, and testing new features. Please contribute to these discussions!

Advanced tasks

These jobs generally require that you have the source code and can compile LilyPond.

Nota: We suggest that contributors using Windows or MacOS X do not attempt to set up their own development environment; instead, use Lilydev as discussed in Quick start.

Contributors using Linux or FreeBSD may also use Lilydev, but if they prefer their own development environment, they should read Working with source code, and Compiling.

Begin by reading Summary for experienced developers.


Patrocínio

Recompensas

Antigamente,

  • alguns usuários pagavam por novos recursos
  • alguns desenvolvedores adicionaram novos recursos para contratação

O projeto LilyPond não organiza esses esforços; nós não endossamos nem desencorajamos tais acordos. Qualquer contrato entre particulares é o entre os indivíduos, não o nosso.

Diretrizes

Qualquer usuário que queira oferecer dinheiro em troca de trabalho deve ter em mente os seguintes pontos:

  • Os desenvolvedores da LilyPond podem oferecer seus serviços nas listas de e-mail do lilypond de tempos em tempos.
  • Quaisquer acordos entre particulares devem incluir as precauções normais ao realizar negócios: quem paga, quanto paga, com que método de pagamento e com que conjunto de condições. Sugerimos que qualquer ambiguidade ou incerteza nessas questões deve ser resolvida antes de qualquer trabalho começar.

Desenvolvimento

Desenvolvimento para LilyPond 2.23.4

Nota: Estas são as versões de desenvolvimento estável. Se você tem alguma dúvida sobre como usar ou instalar o LilyPond, nós pedimos que você use o Download estável e leia o Manuais estáveis.

Números de lançamento

Existem dois conjuntos de lançamentos para o LilyPond: lançamentos estáveis e lançamentos de desenvolvimento instáveis. As versões estáveis têm um número de versão ‘menor’ com numeração par (por exemplo, 2.8, 2.10, 2.12). As versões de desenvolvimento têm um número de versão ‘menor’ com números ímpares (por exemplo, 2.7, 2.9, 2.11).

Google Summer of Code

What is Google Summer of Code?

GSoC is a global program that offers students stipends to write code for free software and open source projects during the summer. For three months students work to complete a given task as part of the project’s community and under the guidance of experienced mentors. The program is an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience with real-world software development and make a contribution that benefits everyone. It brings new contributors to LilyPond and enables students who are already involved to become more involved. LilyPond participates in GSoC as part of the GNU project.

We have had GSoC participants in 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2017. This site is current for the 2018 program.

Project Ideas List

Below is a list of GSoC project ideas (last update: May 2017), but if you have other ideas for a project you may complete within the three months of the program you’re welcome to make a suggestion on our developer mailing list (see Contato). There are a number of areas where LilyPond could be improved, and our development team is always willing to help those who would like to tackle a project similar to those listed below. As mentor availability varies from project to project and from year to year it is wise to get in touch with us as early as possible.

Per 2018 we have installed the new role of “Community Mentor”. We aim at assigning one Community Mentor to each active project who is not responsible for discussing the implementation or reviewing the code. Instead they will on the one hand discuss the design of the planned features from the (power) user perspective, and they will look after the communication between student and mentor, and between the two and the community.

A full list of all the current open issues can be found here.

Adopt the SMuFL music font encoding standard

For several years now a new standard for music fonts has been around: SMuFL, which is also discussed as becoming part of a future W3C standard for music encoding. As a FLOSS tool LilyPond should adhere to such an open standard instead of using an isolated solution like it does today. Adopting SMuFL will help integrating LilyPond with the world of music notation software and eventually give LilyPond users access to a wider selection of notation fonts.

Making LilyPond compliant to SMuFL includes remapping of the glyphs that are built from METAFONT sources, adjusting the glyphs’ metrics to SMuFL’s specifications, and finally updating the way LilyPond looks up and positions the glyphs. As an optional part of this project LilyPond’s font loading mechanism could be modified to use notation fonts installed as system fonts instead of inside the LilyPond installation.

Difficulty: Easy/medium

Requirements: C++ and willingness to get familiar with LilyPond internals.

Recommended: Interest and experience in working with font files. A little bit of METAFONT.

Mentors: Werner Lemberg, Abraham Lee

Adding variants of font glyphs

  • Adding ‘on’ and ‘between’ staff-line variants.
  • Shorter and narrower variants of some glyphs for example, accidentals. Another, more specific example could be an ancient notation breve notehead coming in two variants one with a small or big ‘hole’ within it.

Difficulty: easy

Requirements: MetaFont, C++, good eye for details

Recommended knowledge: basic LilyPond knowledge

Mentor: Werner Lemberg

Improve/Extend Export to MusicXML

There is experimental support for exporting scores to MusicXML. So far there is limited coverage that should be extended, and the export should become more robust with regard to unconventionally organized input files. Several strategies can be thought of in that regard.

Significant progress in coverage has been made in a GSoC Project hosted by Frescobaldi in 2017, but there is still much to be done that could make a nice GSoC project.

Working in this project will mainly be done in the python-ly repository.

Difficulty: easy to hard (depending on the targeted improvements)

Requirements: Python, MusicXML

Mentor: Peter Bjuhr

Fix Beaming Patterns/Beam Subdivisions and Tuplets

Subdivision is an important way to improve the readability of beamed music. However, despite several attempts at fixing it LilyPond still does not always produce correct results. In order to properly fix this issue it seems necessary to rewrite the responsible code from the ground up. Much work has already been done assessing the issue (see this discussion and this work-in-progress document).

In the course of this assessment it has been found that LilyPond’s conception of tuplets is somewhat flawed as well (see this discussion), and that this has to be fixed as well.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: C++

Recommended knowledge: Good musical and mathematical understanding of timing issues

Mentors: Urs Liska, Carl Sorensen

Frescobaldi Extensions

Starting with the current release 3.1 Frescobaldi has an extension API that allows the easy integration of arbitrary functionality in the editing environment. These could range from, say, document statistics and accounting functionality to fancy features like a built-in video chat client or a stock market ticker.

We would welcome project suggestions about arbitrary Frescobaldi extensions of appropriate complexity that add substantial functionality for working with LilyPond scores which might not be suitable to be included into Frescobaldi itself.

As suggestions and examples may serve: a project management extension that can manage repetoire of arbitrary complexity, handle the generation of template files and the compilation process. Or an extension to manage the openLilyLib infrastructure.

Difficulty: easy/medium

Requirements: Python, (PyQt)

Optional: GUILE Scheme (if functionality involves LilyPond internals)

Mentor: Urs Liska

Support for Style Sheets

LilyPond’s engraving output can be tweaked to the least detail, and one important addition in recent years was the ability to use alternative notation fonts. It is possible to create reusable modules for “house styles”, but this project aims at bringing this to a new level by creating a convenient extension package with support for creating, applying, and sharing modular style sheets. We are looking for a hierarchical structure that allows to mix and match style elements for “house” (e.g. “my-personal-style”, “client-a”, “client-b” etc.), score type, paper size etc.

Work can be built upon the existing notation-fonts openLilyLib package. We would like to see a further improvement of the loading mechanism for notation fonts (for example a better separation of loading notation and text fonts) as part of the project, and optionally (this would involve working on Lilypond’s C++ code) support for notation fonts that are installed system-wide.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: Scheme, aesthetic competence

Recommended: sense of building hierarchical frameworks

Optional: C++ (for font loading internals)

Mentor: Abraham Lee

Community Mentor: Kieren MacMillan

Contemporary Notation

LilyPond is very good at creating non-standard notation. Having to code every graphical element instead of simply drawing it may seem cumbersome but is in fact a strong asset. New notational functionality can be provided with consistent appearance, automatic layout and a natural syntactic interface.

Within the openLilyLib library system the student will create a fundamental infrastructure and building blocks to make creating contemporary notation easier. Additionally (at least) one concrete package is developed to cover specific contemporary notation, such as for example the style of a given composer, extended playing techniques for a specific instrument or a certain category of effects.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: Scheme (interaction with LilyPond internals), contemporary notation techniques

Recommended: sense of building hierarchical frameworks

Mentors: NN, Urs Liska

Implement a System to Handle Scores System by System

One strategy that may improve the issue of LilyPond’s compilation time is to handle scores in a system-by-system manner through partial compilation. This project explores one approach to achieve this and may lay the ground for future development towards a “LilyPond server”. It is very ambitions because it involves working with LilyPond’s internals and optionally a reference user interface in Frescobaldi.

The idea behind this project is the implementation of a music viewer that doesn’t display pages but sees a scores as a continuous sequence of systems that are stitched together. LilyPond can produce such a sequence of files, and it can be made aware of the moments of each line break. That way only systems have to be recompiled that are affected by a modification, thus saving significant waiting times. Optionally there could be new engraving modes in LilyPond that don’t try to optimize the line breaking, saving even more time, at least while in content editing mode.

The project is fairly complex and has many more aspects than could be listed on this page. So if you are interested in this please get in touch with us as early as possible to evaluate options and discuss the topics before you write an application.

Difficulty: hard

Requirements: LilyPond/Scheme, Python/PyQt

Optional: C++ if it’s necessary to modify LilyPond itself

Mentors: NN (, Urs Liska)

Community Mentor: Kieren MacMillan

Information for Applicants/Participants

In order to have a satisfying experience with GSoC applicants are strongly advised to thoroughly read the following recommendations. Some of these are relevant for the application process, others for the time within the project.

There is a list of inactive projects in the Sótão. We list projects there that are still considered valuable but for which there are currently no mentors available.

Dois projetos do LilyPond no Google Summer of Code 2016 23 de abril de 2016

Estamos felizes em ver dois estudantes, Nathan Chou e Jeffery Shivers, trabalhando no LilyPond como participantes do Google Summer of Code deste ano. Esperamos que eles produzam ótimos resultados e permaneçam na comunidade de desenvolvedores posteriormente.

Nathan vai lidar com uma limitação irritante, ou seja, a incapacidade de chaves para cruzar vozes. Seu trabalho fará uma série de soluções obsoletas e feias. Jeffery levará o pacote ScholarLY [1] para a qualidade de produção e adicionará um pacote LaTeX a ele, tornando possível criar belos dados críticos a partir de dados codificados diretamente na pontuação de LilyPond.

Inactive Google Summer of Code project suggestions

The following list describes GSoC projects that had been proposed in recent years and which are still considered valuable but for which we currently don’t have mentors available.

Automated testing and documentation for openLilyLib

openLilyLib is an extension framework for LilyPond code providing a “snippets” repository and a suite of integrated packages such as for example page layout tools or scholarly annotations. It is very powerful and promising, but to really get off the ground two features are missing: automated testing and documentation generation.

Automated testing is necessary to ensure modifications to functionality don’t break other functions within the library. There is already some Automated Testing of the “snippets” repository with Github’s Travis server, but this has to be reconsidered and extended to cover the standalone packages too.

In order to be usable for a wider range of LilyPond users on a “consumer level” openLilyLib needs proper documentation. This documentation has to be generated from the sources, so a system is needed that requires package authors to document the input files and provide additional usage examples, from which documentation is generated. Ideally but not necessarily this is implemented as a Git hook, i.e. automatically upon each update to the repository. We don’t prescribe the tools and approaches to be used, but the most widely used language in the LilyPond domain is Python, so there would be some bias towards that. Alternatively a Scheme solution could be fine so generating the documentation would actually be triggered by “compiling” a certain LilyPond input file. In general it is advisable to make use of proven concepts and tools from other languages.

The eventual output of the documentation should be a static HTML site that can be viewed locally and/or uploaded to a website. But it would be beneficial if the tool would first generate an intermediate representation (e.g. a JSON file with additional media files) from which a Single Page Application could retrieve content for display on openLilyLib’s website. Development of such a SPA can be part of the GSoC project, but is optional.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: Python or Scheme, static website generator(s) or (Node.js based) dynamic web application technology. Continuous Integration (can be learned during the bonding period)

MusicXML

Improving MusicXML import and export functions:

File interchange between LilyPond and other applications using MusicXML is still a difficult matter. To import MusicXML it has to be converted manually by the musicxml2ly script. Export to MusicXML is only available as a rudimentary feature inside Frescobaldi. In order to provide natural interchange between LilyPond and MusicXML based applications there’s the need of actual import functionality and a dedicated export backend.

Importing XML shall provide file, line and column to add origin attributes to generated objects. That way point and click can be made available in Frescobaldi or other supported IDEs.

Exporting XML shall be realized with an exporter class like the MIDI export. This may be based on the work already done in GSoC 2015 by David Garfinkle. It should be checked if it is possible to use another XML library than the one provided by guile-2 in order to have this feature available in current LilyPond (which is based on guile-1.8).

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: MusicXML, Python, Scheme, basic LilyPond knowledge

Recommended: Familiarity with other scorewriters (for cross-testing)

Improve slurs and ties

The engraving quality of slurs and ties is often unsatisfactory. Ties ‘broken’ by clef or staff changes are not handled well. The project could include collecting and sorting examples of bad output, deciding on the intended output and writing code to improve them.

Difficulty: hard

Requirements: C++, experience with writing heuristics

Recommended knowledge: LilyPond knowledge, aesthetic sense

Grace notes

Fix problems with synchronization of grace notes. Grace notes can interfere with LilyPond’s timing and cause odd effects, especially when multiple staffs are used where some have grace notes and others don’t. This is one of the longest-standing and one of the more embarrassing bugs in LilyPond.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: C++, MIDI

Recommended: familiarity with LilyPond internals

Improve default beam positioning

For regular, cross-staff, broken and kneed beams. Beaming should depend on context and neighbor notes (see section 2.2 of this book). If possible also reduce beaming-computation time.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: C++, experience with writing heuristics

Recommended knowledge: aesthetic sense

Help improve compilation behavior

Automatic code analysis tools, like valgrind memory leak detection or callgrind code profilers, provide valuable information about possible flaws in our C++ code. Cleaning up warnings would allow us to automate the rejection of any patch which introduced extra warnings.

Difficulty: medium

Requirements: C++

Two LilyPond projects in Google Summer of Code 2016 April 23, 2016

We are happy to see two students, Nathan Chou and Jeffery Shivers, working on LilyPond as participants in the Google Summer of Code this year. We hope they produce great results and stay in the developer community afterwards.

Nathan will tackle an annoying limitation, namely the unability of spanners to cross voices. His work will make a class of ugly workarounds obsolete. Jeffery will bring the ScholarLY package[1] to production quality and add a LaTeX package to it, making it possible to create beautiful critical reports from data encoded directly in the LilyPond score.

LilyPond 2.5.6 was released. This is a "technology preview" release, which means that it has all kinds of nifty features, but is not actually usable for producing nicely printed scores. For this reason, an RPM of this release was not produced.

LilyPond 2.5.1 is out. This is an experimental release, containing some proof-of-concept code for our graphical layout editor. You can add and remove things from the file, and the tweaks will still work, as long as the tweaked notes remain in the place (ie. start at the same time-wise and be part of the same context). Further attractions are: the gnome backend now also draws beams and slurs, updates to the SVG backend, support for the lmodern font set for TeX, various bugfixes.

LilyPond 2.3.16 was released. It fixes a couple of annoying bugs, and has an important addition in the slur-formatter. Slurs that pass note heads much closer than the average distance get an extra penalty. This fixes a lot of difficult slurring cases. See input/regression/new-slur for some examples. Please consider this release as a 3.0 pre-release so try to find as many bugs as possible. A report including a small .ly example can be filed at bug-lilypond@gnu.org In this case, a bug is defined as something that the current 2.3 does worse than the latest 2.2 release. We want to be sure that no output will get uglier by upgrading to 3.0, so that once 3.0 is out, nothing will hold users back in switching.

LilyPond 2.3.9 is out. The important change is that lilypond now once-again directly runs the binary. The old wrapper script has been renamed to lilypond-latex.py, and should only be used for legacy projects. The recommended route is either using lilypond directly (with \book, you can have multiple movements within one document), or to run lilypond-book with a LaTeX wrapper file. This release also fixes a bunch of small errors. I now consider LilyPond feature complete for a 3.0 release. Next on the TODO list is updating the manual, and after that’s done we can release 3.0. The projected date for this to happen is in about a month. Downloads antigos and check out the changes in the ChangeLog.
