OpenSheetMusicDisplay renders MusicXML sheet music in the browser. It is the missing link between MusicXML and VexFlow. Built upon many years of experience in both sheet music interactivity and engraving, it is the perfect solution for app developers seeking to build digital sheet music services.
MusicXML is the de facto standard for exchanging sheet music between music software.
OpenSheetMusicDisplay brings the two together and offers an open source turnkey solution for your digital sheet music project.
Developers can also run a local development demo (see Wiki):
Not all MusicXML tags are (fully) supported: * Pedal marks (currently in early access for sponsors) * Glissando lines * Wavy-line (currently in early access for sponsors) * Etc, see OSMD 1.0 Project
Also, OSMD is a renderer, not an interactive sheet music editor. Rendering takes some time, and you can't easily/quickly move notes, place new notes, etc.
(You can, however, manipulate the SVG nodes for instant changes like note re-coloring, see Exploring the Demo | Wiki)
It would be great if free software were sustainable on its own. But to keep on improving and developing OpenSheetMusicDisplay we need your support. Your monthly sponsorship subscription - especially if you are already actively using OSMD - would mean everything to us - it’s a stable way of enabling us to continue our work, and improve and expand OSMD.
New features currently in the making are: * OSMD Audio Player * Transposing Plugin * Annotations (Add custom text, music symbols, etc. to the score and export to and import from XML)
Our awesome sponsors get awesome perks, like: * Early Access to features like the Audio Player and a transposition plugin for OSMD * A postcard from Vienna
and others. Check them out at our GitHub sponsors page.
And there are other ways to contribute to the community - we plan on starting a blog and newsletter, and sharing our knowledge. We encourage our sponsors to bring up their desired features and pitch blog post ideas.
Though we highly recommend the sponsor route, you can also donate via Paypal:
OSMD is made by Phonicscore - a music-tech company based in Vienna. We create solutions for musicians, sheet music publishers, app developers, music stores and researchers:
