A simple IDE for LilyPond
A stylish, easy-to-use editor for LilyPond.
LilyPond is a fantastic tool for typesetting beautiful musical scores, but its learning curve is tremendous. LilyPond-UI makes writing & editing scores in LilyPond easier by providing a set of easy-to-use features in one package:
Getting Started (for macOS, other platforms not (yet) supported).
LilyPond.Editor.dmgfrom the GitHub releases.
LilyPond.Editor.dmgand drag LilyPond Editor.app into your
LilyPond Editor, open a score, and write!
I love this app!! I was frustrated trying to learn lilypond with my usual editor (vim) and kept having to switch back and forwards with to preview the pdf (compile, then alt-tab).
This editor allows me to 'auto-render' and preview my code at every save.
I hope you continue to develop this editor. It is so much faster and simpler than Frescobaldi (which I find a bit bloaty for my tastes)
