Hello all,

Following a request from community members, we just deployed a new data type called “Musical Notation” in order to store musical notation in Wikidata. Property creators can now find this new data type in the list and create new properties with it.

A property with musical notation data type will display the notation in Lilypond format, using the score extension.

For example, if you enter this code as a value: \relative c' { c d e f | g2 g | a4 a a a | g1 |}, it will be displayed as a score:

The score also appears on the diff pages.

The existing property LilyPond notation (P5482) is used on around 300 items. If you need any help from the developers to change the datatype of the the property or to migrate the content, please let me know.

One bug is already known and we’re working on fixing it: if the score is long, it gets out of the statement box and overlaps with the edit button.

If you encounter any issue, feel free to create a subtask of this ticket.
