Display music as shakuhachi notation

This plugin opens the current score using the ShakuViewer Java program, which then displays it as shakuhachi notation. More information about ShakuViewer is available here.

Assuming that ShakuViewer is already installed on your system, you will need to download the attached plugin file called OpenInShakuViewer.qml, then install it in MuseScore. For plugin installation instructions see this page.

NOTE: After installing the plugin in MuseScore, you need to change the variable SV_PATH in the plugin file to point to the actual location where ShakuViewer is installed on your computer.

The plugin will appear as an entry in the MuseScore Plugins menu called Open in ShakuViewer. When you select it, the currently opened score will be converted to MusicXML format, and saved in the directory where ShakuViewer is installed as a file named plugin_score.musicxml. This file will then be automatically opened in ShakuViewer.

In case you encounter any errors (ShakuViewer doesn't start, no score is displayed, etc.), since the plugin output is not yet saved to a file, you will need to run the standalone ShakuViewer program from the command line and check the output directly.

This plugin was created at the suggestion of Mr. Hiroshi Tachibana, the developer of the Shakuhachi Notation, Fingering MuseScore plugin.
