To install simply save it as "" and put it in your user_extensions directory under the Wikidpad directory in your installation (parallel to extensions etc..).

You need to install lilypond as a dependency (download it from the GNU lilypond site) and you have to set the lilypond executable path in Lilypond preferences:

  • for linux users the path is under /usr/bin/lilypond
  • for windows users the path is under C:\Program Files\LilyPond\usr\bin\lilypond


The plugin is tested with wikidpad version 2.0beta, and the lilypond version 2.12.2 (current stable)


The usage is simple if you know lilypond (if you don't know it it isn't so much useful) for example:

\relative c''{ c d e f}

or with some staves:

\new PianoStaff <<
\new Staff
\relative c''{c d e}
\new Staff 
\relative c{ \clef bass d e f}
