cashmusic.js is a lightweight JavaScript library that handles CASH Music embeds, does some basic video lightboxing, and provides simple audio players. It also provides no-script animation keyed to song progress, enabling advanced audio players with little to no coding needed.

Demos and documentation

Outreach and learning.

Releasing code is great, but it's vital that artists can use it to navigate the industry and web around them. So we're developing a series of events and educational materials connecting musicians to the perspectives and information they need. Learn more.

Community is vital. We can't do this alone. Please get in touch, join the mailing list, or support our organization by donating or buying a shirt. Together we can ensure a healthy future for musicians everywhere.
