OpenLP to ProPresenter 5 converter
This is a simple fast converter from OpenLP's sqlite database to ProPresenter 5 XML files.
It works quickly, and does our 2700 song database in about 5 seconds.
Work in Progress, Please enjoy.
How to use:
Currently a bit basic, written to run on OSX. It should be very easy to port to Windows/Linux/etc.
The script will try to load the database from
( ~ means "Your home directory" )
To change that, edit the line which says "OPENLP_DATABASE" in converter.py
It will create all the XML files in /tmp/
On Mac, you can open /tmp/ with (in Finder) Menu->Go->Go To folder.
By default, the script will open the /tmp/ directory when it's finished running.
By default, the converter will set the font as Helvetica, the background color as black, and the text color as white. It will put a maximum of 4 lines per slide.
These settings are all at the top of the converter.py script, and should be very easy to change.
Python. (2.6ish) Should come built-in on OSX.
- Make it rugged
- Make it pretty
- (Maybe auto italic (repeat) lines...)
- Make a .app & .exe (with simple GUIs)
- Make profit. (or not...)
