Create a VisualEditor plugin tool to add/edit musical scores (Score extension)
OpenPublic

Description

As a VisualEditor plugin inside the extension, provide a visual way for users to create and edit musical scores.

This would be a (very) major undertaking, even if there is an existing JavaScript-based visual Lilypond score editor, or failing that, a visual score editor with a different output format which would need to be converted to Lilypond. A brief search found a few promising leads for ABC editors, but mostly based in Flash.

Still, hopefully not just a pipedream. :-)

Just adding a text editor with a preview button, like e.g. lilybin.com does it, does not sound that hard. I wonder if that could even be a generic fallback option for tag-based parser extensions without a dedicated editor plugin.

Indeed, but this task is asking for a visual drag-and-drop sheet music editor.

That's already provided in VisualEditor.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
