Conversion From Other Formats¶
Being able to convert songs from other formats to OpenLyrics is necessary to speed up the adoption of the OpenLyrics format and for compatibility with other applications which already support OpenLyrics.
One of the tools bundled with the OpenLyrics source documents is a command line tool to convert OpenSong song files to OpenLyrics. The conversion script should work in most situations, but do make sure that the conversion was successful before removing the old files.
Before using the script for conversion please ensure that the following is available in your system:
To execute the script use the following command:
python ./opensong2openlyrics.py opensong_file openlyrics_file.xml
Where opensong_file is the original song in OpenSong format and openlyrics_file.xml is the name of the song in OpenLyrics format.
