I’ve been doing some experiments with ABC and the built-in web server so I can put small snippets of riffs etc mixed in with my normal textual show notes.
For those that haven’t come across it before, ABC is a textual way to describe sheet music - best by example: abcjs editor
The first image is the output from some slightly hacky changes I did to the web UI layout and code. The second is the actual notes as added to the song in Cantabile itself.
(I’m using “fixed-width” as the indicator something should be parsed as ABC in the web UI).
So why am I sharing this?
First off, I think it’s cool for only a couple of hours effort, and I wanted to share
Secondly, @Brad can we have some kind of content-type setting for song notes (and maybe launchers/parsers for content)?
Thirdly, can we maybe support ABC display natively in Cantabile itself?
