abcjs - a new feature for the forums

Postby cwalshaw » Mon May 17, 2010 3:00 pm

NEWS: I've just installed abcjs in the forums - the marvellous new javascript rendering engine abc from Gregory Dyke and Paul Rosen.

How does it work - well just paste some abc into a forum post and (provided you've got javascript turned on in your browser), the post should automatically included the dots and a midi player!

The only restrictions are that the abc has to include an X: field (so that abcjs can recognise it) and that, due to a technical Microsoft restriction, Internet Explorer will not display the midi player (though it works just fine in FireFox).

Apart from that it works like magic.
