scamp.score.ScoreComponent

class scamp.score.ScoreComponent[source]

Bases: abc.ABC

Abstract class from which all of the user-facing classes in this module inherit. Provides a consistent interface for wrapping any object up as a Score and converting to LilyPond and MusicXML output.

Methods

export_lilypond(file_path[, non_score_blocks])

Convert and wrap as a LilyPond (.ly) file, and save to the given path.

export_music_xml(file_path[, pretty_print])

Convert and wrap as a MusicXML score, and save to the given path.

export_pdf(file_path[, non_score_blocks])

Exports score as a PDF file and saves it to the given file_path

print_lilypond([wrap_as_file, non_score_blocks])

Convert and print LilyPond code, via the abjad library.

print_music_xml([pretty_print])

Convert and wrap as a MusicXML score, and print the resulting XML.

show([non_score_blocks])

Using the abjad.show command, generates and opens a PDF of the music represented by this component

show_xml()

Convert and wrap as a MusicXML score, and open it up in notation software.

to_abjad([wrap_as_file, non_score_blocks])

Convert this score component to its corresponding abjad component

to_lilypond([wrap_as_file, non_score_blocks])

Convert to LilyPond code, via the abjad library.

to_music_xml()

Convert this score component to its corresponding pymusicxml component

abstract to_music_xml()pymusicxml.score_components.MusicXMLComponent[source]

Convert this score component to its corresponding pymusicxml component

export_music_xml(file_path: str, pretty_print: bool = True) → None[source]

Convert and wrap as a MusicXML score, and save to the given path.

Parameters
  • file_path – file path to save to

  • pretty_print – whether or not to take the extra space and format the file with indentations, etc.

print_music_xml(pretty_print: bool = True) → None[source]

Convert and wrap as a MusicXML score, and print the resulting XML.

Parameters

pretty_print – whether or not to take the extra space and format the file with indentations, etc.

show_xml() → None[source]

Convert and wrap as a MusicXML score, and open it up in notation software. (The software to use is defined in engraving_settings.show_music_xml_command_line.)

to_abjad(wrap_as_file: bool = False, non_score_blocks: Sequence = None, **lilypond_file_args) → abjad.score.Component[source]

Convert this score component to its corresponding abjad component

Parameters
  • wrap_as_file – if True, wraps this as an abjad.LilypondFile

  • non_score_blocks – (Only applicable if wrap_as_file is set to True). A list of abjad.Block objects (or strings containing the LilyPond code for such a block, which are then parsed by abjad). Typical blocks might be a header block, a layout block, or a paper block. If no header block is specified, one will be created with the score’s title and composer. If a header is specified, title and composer will be added if not present.

  • lilypond_file_args – any additional keyword arguments will be passed along to the constructor of abjad.LilyPondFile (assuming wrap_as_file is True). This allows for setting staff size and various other customizations.

export_lilypond(file_path: str, non_score_blocks: Sequence = None, **lilypond_file_args) → None[source]

Convert and wrap as a LilyPond (.ly) file, and save to the given path.

Parameters
  • file_path – file path to save to

  • non_score_blocks – a list of abjad.Block objects (or strings containing the LilyPond code for such a block, which are then parsed by abjad); typical blocks might be a header block, a layout block, or a paper block. If no header block is specified, one will be created with the score’s title and composer. If a header is specified, title and composer will be added if not present.

  • lilypond_file_args – any additional keyword arguments will be passed along to the constructor of abjad.LilyPondFile (assuming wrap_as_file is True). This allows for setting staff size and various other customizations.

export_pdf(file_path: str, non_score_blocks: Sequence = None, **lilypond_file_args) → None[source]

Exports score as a PDF file and saves it to the given file_path

Parameters
  • file_path – where to save the PDF

  • non_score_blocks – a list of abjad.Block objects (or strings containing the LilyPond code for such a block, which are then parsed by abjad); typical blocks might be a header block, a layout block, or a paper block. If no header block is specified, one will be created with the score’s title and composer. If a header is specified, title and composer will be added if not present.

  • lilypond_file_args – any additional keyword arguments will be passed along to the constructor of abjad.LilyPondFile (assuming wrap_as_file is True). This allows for setting staff size and various other customizations.

to_lilypond(wrap_as_file: bool = False, non_score_blocks: Sequence = None, **lilypond_file_args) → str[source]

Convert to LilyPond code, via the abjad library.

Parameters
  • wrap_as_file – if True, wraps this as an abjad.LilypondFile

  • non_score_blocks – (Only applicable if wrap_as_file is set to True). A list of abjad.Block objects (or strings containing the LilyPond code for such a block, which are then parsed by abjad). Typical blocks might be a header block, a layout block, or a paper block. If no header block is specified, one will be created with the score’s title and composer. If a header is specified, title and composer will be added if not present.

  • lilypond_file_args – any additional keyword arguments will be passed along to the constructor of abjad.LilyPondFile (assuming wrap_as_file is True). This allows for setting staff size and various other customizations.

Returns

a string containing the LilyPond code
