The SVGFonts package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

Native font support for the diagrams framework ( Note that this package can be used with any diagrams backend, not just the SVG backend. The SVG-tont 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 and Bitstream fonts.


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

Version 1.0 of this library supports texturing, though this would only sense in a diagrams backend that does rasterization in Haskell.


  # LANGUAGE NoMonomorphismRestriction #

 import Diagrams.Prelude
 import Diagrams.Backend.Cairo.CmdLine
 import Graphics.SVGFonts.ReadFont (textSVG)

 main = defaultMain (text' "Hello World")

 text'   t = stroke (textSVG t 1) # fc purple # fillRule EvenOdd
 text''  t = stroke (textSVG' $ TextOpts t lin INSIDE_H KERN False 1 1 ) # fillRule EvenOdd
 text''' t =        (textSVG_ $ TextOpts t lin INSIDE_H KERN True  1 1 ) # fillRule EvenOdd
