Alda Layer

Table of ContentsClose


1. Description

Alda is a music composition language allowing music to easily be written and edited in a text file.

This layer adds key bindings for alda-mode's functions, which allow Alda code to be interpreted and played by the running Alda server. It will also start the Alda server if it is not running.

1.1. Features:

  • Syntax highlighting for Alda files.
  • Play portions of a buffer, or the entire buffer, through a running Alda server.

2. Install

Add alda to the dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in ~/.spacemacs. You will also want to ensure that you have installed Alda so that alda-mode can play your code.

3. Key bindings

When alda-mode is active in an Alda file, you can use these key bindings:

Key binding Description
SPC m b Play the entire buffer
SPC m c Play block (paragraph on point)
SPC m r Play region (selected text)
SPC m n Plays the current line

Note that if the Alda server is not running, alda-mode will start the server, and you will have to run the command again.
