What is OpenSheetMusicDisplay?

OpenSheeMusicDisplay 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 sharing sheet music on the internet. VexFlow is widely used for rendering sheet music. It features an extensive note sign library attributable to its open source nature.

OpenSheetMusicDisplay brings the two together and offers an open source turnkey solution for your digital sheet music project.

Here is what you get:

  • Extended sheet music interactivity: responsive line breaks, layovers, titles and much more
  • Open Source even for commercial projects thanks to BSD license
  • Future proof due to community driven development
  • Perfect for app development
  • The best of both interactivity & rendering worlds in digital sheet music
  • Works with every modern browser (please don’t ask for IE6)
  • Comes with many  years of  music engraving experience built-in
