This shows a selected set of LilyPond snippets from the LilyPond Snippet Repository (LSR). All the snippets are in the public domain.

Please note that this document is not an exact subset of LSR. LSR is running a stable LilyPond version, so any snippet which demonstrates new features of a development version must be added separately. These are stored in Documentation/snippets/new/ in the LilyPond source tree.

The list of snippets for each subsection of the Notation Reference is also linked from the See also portion.
