These guides will help you create Lua scripts to use with Finale. More specifically, they’ll help you create great scripts for the Lua Scripts repository. That way, you can build scripts faster, and help other Finale users find them.
There are several benefits for contributing to this project:
As you start contributing, just remember that you can always get help.
To contribute, you’ll need a GitHub account. We use GitHub to collaborate on the code. Think of Google Drive or Dropbox but for code. If you don’t have a GitHub account, you can sign up here.
If you’ve never used Git or GitHub before, that’s ok. These docs will walk you through most of the process of using them with this repository. However, there are some great resources for learning Git and GitHub out there.
Next, learn how to add scripts to this repository.
Note: All scripts added to the repo will have a CC0 license. See LICENSE for specific terms. This is to encourage widespread use and encourage other Finale Lua coders to build off your scripts.
