xml Session file documentation


is there somewhere a documentation of the xml-file format used for ardour sessions? Maybe even a schema-file I can use in an xml-editor?

Thanks and greets,


There is no such documentation, or schema.

Hi Paul, how can we view the XML of Ardour? I remember you (or maybe someone else?) mentioning somewhere on this forum that everything in Ardour can or is represented via XML. Will Ardour ever have something akin to Inkscape’s XML editor? You response and help is greatly appreciated.

Ardour already is the “editor” for the XML it generates. There are absolutely no plans whatsoever to ever have the program explicitly display that XML as text, either in read-only or editable form.

If you want to look at it, fire up a text editor on a session file. As I stated above, there is no documentation and no schema.
