Welcome to Chordii! Chordii is a fork of Chord, a program very popular several years ago and most famous for its trendsetting 'ChordPro' music file format. After multiple failed attempts to contact the original authors, it was determined that Chord was unmaintained. Luckily, Chord was licensed under the GPL, so it was forked into Chordii and active development could continue. Chordii's purpose is to provide guitar players with a tool to produce good looking, self-descriptive music sheets from text files. Chordii reads a text file containing the lyrics of a song, the chords to be played, their description and some other optional data to produce a PostScript document that includes: Centered titles Chord names above the words Graphical representation of the chords at the end of the songs Transposition Multiple columns on a page Index of a songbook Multiple logical pages per physical pages (1, 2 or 4) Configurable fonts for the lyrics and the chord names Coloured chords Multiple songs inside one file The complete ISO 8859-1 character set Chorus marking And, as they say, more... and even more to come! Chordii homepage: http://chordii.org/ Project homepage: http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/chordii/ Extensive documentation can be found in the Chordii User Guide, available on the Chordii Download Page. A Java beta version of the old Chord program from its original authors can be found on http://sourceforge.net/projects/chord4 . Initially, Chordii was named Chordie, but this has been changed on request to avoid confusion with the Chordie.Com web site. ===== Copyright ===== Chordii version 4.1 and later is Copyright 2008 The Chordii Project Chordie version 4.0 and later is Copyright 2007 The Chordie Project Chordii is licensed following the conditions of the GNU Public License, version 3 or later.
