Methods

render_direction_type()

Renders the <direction-type> element that constitutes the main substance of a <direction> element.

Inherited Methods

export_to_file(file_path[, pretty_print])

Exports this musical object (wrapped as a score) to the given file path.

render()

Renders this component to a tuple of ElementTree.Element.

to_xml([pretty_print])

Renders this component to MusicXML, adding a version tag, but not wrapping it up as a full score.

view_in_software(command)

Uses the given terminal command to create a score out of this musical object, and open it in music notation software.

wrap_as_score()

Wraps this component in a Score so that it can be exported and viewed

render_direction_type() → Sequence[xml.etree.ElementTree.Element][source]

Renders the <direction-type> element that constitutes the main substance of a <direction> element.

export_to_file(file_path: str, pretty_print: bool = True) → None

Exports this musical object (wrapped as a score) to the given file path.

Parameters
  • file_path – The path of the file we want to write to.

  • pretty_print – If True, breaks the MusicXML onto multiple lines, with indentation

render() → Sequence[xml.etree.ElementTree.Element]

Renders this component to a tuple of ElementTree.Element. (The reason for making it a tuple is that musical objects like chords are represented by several notes side by side, with all but the first containing a </chord> tag.)

to_xml(pretty_print: bool = False) → str

Renders this component to MusicXML, adding a version tag, but not wrapping it up as a full score.

Parameters

pretty_print – If True, breaks the MusicXML onto multiple lines, with indentation

view_in_software(command: str) → None

Uses the given terminal command to create a score out of this musical object, and open it in music notation software.

Parameters
