Display music as koto/shamisen notation

This plugin opens the current score using the KotoViewer Java program, which then displays it as koto/shamisen notation. More information about KotoViewer is available here.

Assuming that KotoViewer is already installed on your system, you will need to download the attached plugin file called OpenInKotoViewer.qml, then install it in MuseScore. For plugin installation instructions see this page.

NOTE: After installing the plugin in MuseScore, you need to change the variable KV_PATH in the plugin file to point to the actual location where KotoViewer is installed on your computer.

The plugin will appear as an entry in the MuseScore Plugins menu called Open in KotoViewer. When you select it, the currently opened score will be converted to MusicXML format, and saved in the directory where KotoViewer is installed as a file named plugin_score.musicxml. This file will then be automatically opened in KotoViewer.

In case you encounter any errors (KotoViewer doesn't start, no score is displayed, etc.), since the plugin output is not yet saved to a file, you will need to run the standalone KotoViewer program from the command line and check the output directly.
