SVGFonts: Fonts from the SVG-Font format

[ bsd3, graphics, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This format is easy to parse and was therefore chosen for a font library completely written in Haskell

You can convert your own font to SVG with or use the included LinLibertine, Bitstream


XML speed issues can be solved by trimming the svg file to only those characters that are used (or maybe binary xml one day)

Readme for SVGFonts-1.0

[back to package description]

  Convert your favourite font (i.e.  .ttf) into a .svg file with fontforge (the menu item under
  "Save All"). If a font converted on your own doesn't work, try the repair options, and if this still
  doens't work edit the file by hand or tell me.
  Remember that a lot of fonts are not allowed to be distributed freely.

  src/Test/Font.hs generates a Collada file that can be read with tools like blender.
  Textures currently don't work with blenders new native collada import.
  But one can see them in Scenixviewer from nvidia.
  The data that is passed to genCollada is represented with a data type that I use for all my libraries
  to allow easy combination.
