liquidsnail depends on ``pygame``, the ``fluidsynth`` library, the ``mingus``
Python module, the progam ``sf2text`` from the ``awesfx`` package of programs,
and the availability of a soundfont (free soundfonts come with
``fluidsynth``). When this README was written, a Python 3 version of mingus was
available at http://code.google.com/r/artdent-mingus-python3/
Run ``liquidsnail --help``.
liquidsnail uses Git for code management. To get the latest branch, download it from
