iRealb - A plugin to convert a MusicXML file into a iRealb chart

iRealb - A plugin to convert a MuseScore MusicXML file into a iRealb chart.

What:
This plugin attempts to convert a MuseScore MusicXML file
into a iRealb chart.

How:
1. Open MuseScore
2. Create a regular MuseScore chart
3. Save your MuseScore chart as a MusicXML file.
4. Go to Plugins -> iRealb
5. Select the XML file of you chart.
6. 'Select All' -> Copy the URI from the Text Dialog window.
(NOTE: the text dialog window is editable, which is handy for
quick edits/changes once you get familiar with the
iRealb syntax.)
7. Open a Web Browser and navigate to http://www.irealb.com/editor/
8. Paste the URI from above in the textarea titled:
'IMPORT - Paste a song/playlist code here:'
9. Click 'Import'
10. Compare the Web Editor results with your MuseScore Chart
11. Make the corrections needed via the iRealb Web Editor
(there will probably be many ;)
12. Export your song (Email, etc) from the iRealb Web Editor
to get it on your iRealb app.

NOTE: It does not convert every (any ;) chart accurately.
It does often get many of the chords and form correct.
usually, at the worst, it can save you time creating
your chart via the Web Editor.

Install:
1. Download the plugin by right clicking the link and save target as.
2. Uncompress the file (Unzip)
3. Place the unzipped dir, 'irealb' into the plugins directory of
