You can launch ossia score from the command line or shell scripts with various useful options.
$ ossia-score --help
$ ossia-score filename # For example: $ ossia-score /home/oscar/my-score.score
$ ossia-score --autoplay filename # For example: $ ossia-score --autoplay /home/oscar/my-score.score
This is useful if for instance the score has audio plug-ins that take some time to load, such as orchestral plug-ins with large sound banks.
$ ossia-score --autoplay filename --wait delay_in_seconds # For example: $ ossia-score --autoplay /home/oscar/my-score.score --wait 5
$ ossia-score --no-gui
(note: this is not very useful without specifying a file to load).
This is useful if you are quitting score for instance by killing the process, as score will register that as a crash, which will cause the pop-up to show up next time.
$ ossia-score --no-restore
ossia score uses as of v3 OpenGL for rendering the main timeline. On some old machines or machines with bad GL drivers, this can cause issues. We then recommend using that switch to launch it.
$ ossia-score --no-opengl
$ /usr/bin/ossia-score --no-gui --no-restore --wait 5 --autoplay "/path/to/your/score.score"
$ /Applications/Score.app/Contents/MacOS/score --no-gui --no-restore --wait 5 --autoplay "/path/to/your/score.score"
> "c:\Program Files\ossia score\score.exe" --no-gui --no-restore --wait 5 --autoplay "c:\path\to\your\score.score"
SCORE_DISABLE_ALSA=1: on Linux, disables the ALSA backend.
SCORE_DISABLE_AUDIOPLUGINS=1: disables scanning of VST, LV2 plug-ins on startup.
FAUST_LIB_PATH=/some/path: can override the default path where score looks for Faust libraries (by default they ship with score).
