  • Fabrice Salvaire 2017 (cleanup for Python 3)
  • Wei-Wei Guo 2009, licensed under BSD


Using pip:

pip install sphinxcontrib-lilypond


  • A lily role to include a standalone music markup. For example, a G clef can be inserted by:

    :lily:`\musicglyph #"clefs.G"`

    The purpose of the ‘lily’ role is writing music comments or learning notes. So only one markup is allowed.

  • A lily directive to include a score, for example:

    .. lily::
       \relative c'' {
         c4 a d c


The lilypond_fontsize variable can be used to set the font size:

lilypond_fontsize = ['6', '-3']
  • The first value is for lily role setting in absolute font size.
  • The second value is for lily directive setting in relative font size.
