A quick web hack to view pages out of a PDF scan of a Fakebook. The idea is you can do a quick song search with your phone/laptop/whatever when you need the chart for a gig.  Possible extras include annotations/bookmarks, and ideally music extraction/transposition.


I took an index document and OCRed it to get the database listing.  PDF->png extraction uses libpoppler, tornadoweb used for web application.


Source/live site maybe coming soon.
