CPDL vs IMSLP

Postby Crepitus » Fri Apr 24, 2015 4:56 pm

I wonder why IMSLP and CPDL didn't merge their content. Or, why CPDL content has not been batch imported in IMSLP already. Does anyone object to such a move ? If you need a geek with resources to achieve it, I am volontary, though that may be ambitious :-)

Thanks for your hints about why this has not been done yet!

For some cpdl scores the pdf is not on cpdl but you obtain a link to another site e.g. http://www1.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Johann_Georg_Baumann So the situation isn't that simple.

Personally I would welcome sort of a Super-imslp-cpdl site containing similar composer and work pages, without pdf's, but with a link to either site offering the pdf. And consider also http://imslp.org/wiki/IMSLP:Other_music_score_websites :-)

A couple of years ago I developed a (quite rough) function on CPDL, named Multi-Site Search. It simultaneously searches CPDL and IMSLP for the same keyword(s), so that, for example, you can get the list of all works of a given composer that ar present on either site (or on both). It should be refined and improved (for example, the CPDL and IMSLP APIs should be invoked usung JSON rather than XML as XML support may be discontinued in the future), anyway the idea basically works.

The above function may be somehow integrated inside CPDL and/or IMSLP, so that works available for a given composer are directly displayed in the relevant composer page with links towards other site. Alternatively, the same function can be used to create the Super-imslp-cpdl site as suggested by Coulunnus.

Thanks. http://fr.scorser.com/D/Partitions.html is more or less the global site I request, but its interface is unpleasant. Does anybody know which score sites are covered by scorser?

The idea of merging has been explored in the past, and I think the main problem was that CPDL hosts its contents under a copyright license (GNU GPL) that IMSLP doesn't have. Another consideration is that the two websites support different kinds of files, and the overall structure is really quite different.
