Description Jennifer Zagurski 2006-09-17 19:08:14 UTC
Lilypond allows the input of musical scores in a manner similar to LaTeX.  This
is very important for Wikisource as we current have to use the very labor
intensive method of scanning pages from a book; cropping out the music;
uploading the crops; and formatting as an image.  Curently an entire Musical
Encyclopeia is being added to en.WS and example page is:

This feature is greatly needed for this and other musical projects at Wikisource.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-09-17 19:12:45 UTC
Is there a working extension for this?  Seemingly [[w:Wikipedia:WikiTex]]
exists, but I'm not clear on whether it's of usable quality level at this point.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-09-17 19:15:16 UTC
Blah, make that [[Wikipedia:WikiTeX]].
Comment 3 Jennifer Zagurski 2006-09-17 19:21:03 UTC
It is available at other MediaWiki wikis

I don't know if there are still unresovled issues for us or not.  But if there
are please resolve them.
Comment 4 Jennifer Zagurski 2006-09-17 19:23:40 UTC
Look at [[Bug 189]]  There is something there but it is over my head
Comment 5 Dscho 2006-09-17 22:00:13 UTC

Comment on bug 189: It is a simple extension using Lilypond (you have to have
Lilypond installed in order to operate this). The music is typeset by
enclosing Lilypond notation into <lilypond>..</lilypond> tags. It is very easy:

<lilypond>c4 d e f g</lilypond>

creates a scale from c to g, in quarter notes. (It could be that the tag is
actually <lily>, not <lilypond>, but I do not remember off-hand, because it
is such a long time ago that I made the extension.)


Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2006-10-09 22:24:39 UTC
Tim considers Lilypond too inherently unsafe.

We'll want something that's cleaner and more secure.

I'll be bold and reopen this request since on bug 189 comment 37 (from 2008), Tim Starling said
"[...] if you really want to write a LilyPond extension, you could at least go to the trouble of reviewing its security [...]"
and there is a specific request to fix the problem of DoS attacks on Bug 29630.
Comment 9 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-07-01 18:08:41 UTC
Marking later, it isn't actionable until it's fixed
Comment 10 Helder 2012-11-03 22:33:16 UTC
For the record, I think it is more likely we will get bug 33193 fixed than this one.
Comment 11 James Forrester 2013-04-23 17:13:13 UTC
This is now fixed, FWIW.
