14.4.3 Installing Patchy

The Patchy scripts are not part of the LilyPond code base, but can be downloaded from https://github.com/gperciva/lilypond-extra/. The scripts and related Python libraries are all located in the ‘patches/’ directory.

Alternatively, use git clone;

git clone https://github.com/gperciva/lilypond-extra/

This makes it simpler to update the scripts if any changes are ever made to them. Finally, add the location of the ‘patches/’ directory to your PATH.
