Project Description

What is this?

fontTools is a library for manipulating fonts, written in Python. The project includes the TTX tool, that can convert TrueType and OpenType fonts to and from an XML text format, which is also called TTX. It supports TrueType, OpenType, AFM and to an extent Type 1 and some Mac-specific formats. The project has a BSD-style open-source licence.
Among other things this means you can use it free of charge.

Installation

FontTools requires Python 2.7, 3.4 or later.

The package is listed in the Python Package Index (PyPI), so you can install it with pip:

pip install fonttools

If you would like to contribute to its development, you can clone the repository from Github, install the package in ‘editable’ mode and modify the source code in place. We recommend creating a virtual environment, using virtualenv or Python 3 venv module.

# download the source code to 'fonttools' folder
git clone https://github.com/fonttools/fonttools.git
cd fonttools

# create new virtual environment called e.g. 'fonttools-venv', or anything you like
python -m virtualenv fonttools-venv

# source the `activate` shell script to enter the environment (Un\*x); to exit, just type `deactivate`
. fonttools-venv/bin/activate

# to activate the virtual environment in Windows `cmd.exe`, do
fonttools-venv\Scripts\activate.bat

# install in 'editable' mode
pip install -e .

TTX – From OpenType and TrueType to XML and Back

Once installed you can use the ttx command to convert binary font files (.otf, .ttf, etc) to the TTX xml format, edit them, and convert them back to binary format. TTX files have a .ttx file extension.

ttx /path/to/font.otf
ttx /path/to/font.ttx

The TTX application works can be used in two ways, depending on what platform you run it on:

  • As a command line tool (Windows/DOS, Unix, MacOSX)
  • By dropping files onto the application (Windows, MacOS)

TTX detects what kind of files it is fed: it will output a .ttx file when it sees a .ttf or .otf, and it will compile a .ttf or .otf when the input file is a .ttx file. By default, the output file is created in the same folder as the input file, and will have the same name as the input file but with a different extension. TTX will never overwrite existing files, but if necessary will append a unique number to the output filename (before the extension) such as Arial#1.ttf

When using TTX from the command line there are a bunch of extra options, these are explained in the help text, as displayed when typing ttx -h at the command prompt. These additional options include:

  • specifying the folder where the output files are created
  • specifying which tables to dump or which tables to exclude
  • merging partial .ttx files with existing .ttf or .otf files
  • listing brief table info instead of dumping to .ttx
  • splitting tables to separate .ttx files
  • disabling TrueType instruction disassembly

The TTX file format

The following tables are currently supported:

BASE, CBDT, CBLC, CFF, COLR, CPAL, DSIG, EBDT, EBLC, FFTM, GDEF,
GMAP, GPKG, GPOS, GSUB, HVAR, JSTF, LTSH, MATH, META, MVAR, OS/2,
SING, STAT, SVG, TSI0, TSI1, TSI2, TSI3, TSI5, TSIB, TSID, TSIJ,
TSIP, TSIS, TSIV, VDMX, VORG, VVAR, avar, cmap, cvar, cvt, feat,
fpgm, fvar, gasp, glyf, gvar, hdmx, head, hhea, hmtx, kern, loca,
ltag, maxp, meta, name, post, prep, sbix, trak, vhea and vmtx

Other tables are dumped as hexadecimal data.

TrueType fonts use glyph indices (GlyphIDs) to refer to glyphs in most places. While this is fine in binary form, it is really hard to work with for humans. Therefore we use names instead.

The glyph names are either extracted from the CFF table or the post table, or are derived from a Unicode cmap table. In the latter case the Adobe Glyph List is used to calculate names based on Unicode values. If all of these methods fail, names are invented based on GlyphID (eg glyph00142)

It is possible that different glyphs use the same name. If this happens, we force the names to be unique by appending #n to the name (n being an integer number.) The original names are being kept, so this has no influence on a “round tripped” font.

Because the order in which glyphs are stored inside the binary font is important, we maintain an ordered list of glyph names in the font.

Other Tools

Commands for inspecting, merging and subsetting fonts are also available:

pyftinspect
pyftmerge
pyftsubset

fontTools Python Module

The fontTools python module provides a convenient way to programmatically edit font files.

>>> from fontTools.ttLib import TTFont
>>> font = TTFont('/path/to/font.ttf')
>>> font
<fontTools.ttLib.TTFont object at 0x10c34ed50>
>>>

A selection of sample python programs is in the Snippets directory.

Testing

To run the test suite, you can do:

python setup.py test

If you have pytest, you can run the pytest command directly. The tests will run against the installed fontTools package, or the first one found in the PYTHONPATH.

You can also use tox to automatically run tests on different Python versions in isolated virtual environments.

pip install tox
tox

Note that when you run tox without arguments, the tests are executed for all the environments listed in tox.ini’s envlist. In our case, this includes Python 2.7, 3.5 and 3.6, so for this to work the python2.7, python3.5 and python3.6 executables must be available in your PATH.

You can specify an alternative environment list via the -e option, or the TOXENV environment variable:

tox -e py27-nocov
TOXENV="py{27,36}-cov" tox

Development Community

TTX/FontTools development is ongoing in an active community of developers, that includes professional developers employed at major software corporations and type foundries as well as hobbyists.

Feature requests and bug reports are always welcome at https://github.com/fonttools/fonttools/issues/

The best place for discussions about TTX from an end-user perspective as well as TTX/FontTools development is the https://groups.google.com/d/forum/fonttools mailing list. There is also a development https://groups.google.com/d/forum/fonttools-dev mailing list for continuous integration notifications. You can also email Behdad privately at behdad@behdad.org

History

The fontTools project was started by Just van Rossum in 1999, and was maintained as an open source project at http://sourceforge.net/projects/fonttools/. In 2008, Paul Wise (pabs3) began helping Just with stability maintenance. In 2013 Behdad Esfahbod began a friendly fork, thoroughly reviewing the codebase and making changes at https://github.com/behdad/fonttools to add new features and support for new font formats.

  • [varLib] added --build-HVAR option to generate HVAR table for fonts with TrueType outlines. For CFF2, it is enabled by default.

3.2.0 (released 2016-11-02)

  • [varLib] Improve support for OpenType 1.8 Variable Fonts:
  • Implement GDEF’s VariationStore

  • several bug fixes to the cffLib module, contributed by Adobe’s @readroberts
  • The XML output for CFF table now has a ‘major’ and ‘minor’ elements for specifying whether it’s version 1.0 or 2.0 (support for CFF2 is coming soon)
  • [setup.py] remove undocumented/deprecated extra_path Distutils argument. This means that we no longer create a “FontTools” subfolder in site-packages containing the actual fontTools package, as well as the standalone xmlWriter and sstruct modules. The latter modules are also deprecated, and scheduled for removal in upcoming releases. Please change your import statements to point to from fontTools.misc import xmlWriter and from fontTools.misc import sstruct.
  • [scripts] Add a ‘fonttools’ command-line tool that simply runs fontTools.* sub-modules: e.g. fonttools ttx, fonttools subset, etc.
  • [hmtx/vmts] Read advance width/heights as unsigned short (uint16); automatically round float values to integers.
  • [ttLib/xmlWriter] add ‘newlinestr=None’ keyword argument to TTFont.saveXML for overriding os-specific line endings (passed on to XMLWriter instances).
  • [versioning] Use versioneer instead of setuptools_scm to dynamically load version info from a git checkout at import time.
  • [feaLib] Support backslash-prefixed glyph names.

  • Fix issues related to mona.ttf
  • Fix Windows Installer instructions

2.3 (released 2009-11-08)

  • TrueType Collection (TTC) support
  • Python 2.6 support
  • Update Unicode data to 5.2.0
  • Couple of bug fixes

2.2 (released 2008-05-18)

  • ClearType support
  • cmap format 1 support
  • PFA font support
  • Switched from Numeric to numpy
  • Update Unicode data to 5.1.0
  • Update AGLFN data to 1.6
  • Many bug fixes

2.1 (released 2008-01-28)

  • Many years worth of fixes and features

2.0b2 (released 2002-??-??)

  • Be “forgiving” when interpreting the maxp table version field: interpret any value as 1.0 if it’s not 0.5. Fixes dumping of these GPL fonts: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/pds.cgi?ports/chinese/wangttf
  • Fixed ttx -l: it turned out this part of the code didn’t work with Python 2.2.1 and earlier. My bad to do most of my testing with a different version than I shipped TTX with :-(
  • Fixed bug in ClassDef format 1 subtable (Andreas Seidel bumped into this one).

2.0b1 (released 2002-09-10)

  • Fixed embarrassing bug: the master checksum in the head table is now calculated correctly even on little-endian platforms (such as Intel).
  • Made the cmap format 4 compiler smarter: the binary data it creates is now more or less as compact as possible. TTX now makes more compact data than in any shipping font I’ve tested it with.
  • Dump glyph names as a separate “GlyphOrder” pseudo table as opposed to as part of the glyf table (obviously needed for CFF-OTF’s).
  • Added proper support for the CFF table.
  • Don’t barf on empty tables (questionable, but “there are font out there…”)
  • When writing TT glyf data, align glyphs on 4-byte boundaries. This seems to be the current recommendation by MS. Also: don’t barf on fonts which are already 4-byte aligned.
  • Windows installer contributed bu Adam Twardoch! Yay!
  • Changed the command line interface again, now by creating one new tool replacing the old ones: ttx It dumps and compiles, depending on input file types. The options have changed somewhat.
  • The -d option is back (output dir)
  • ttcompile’s -i options is now called -m (as in “merge”), to avoid clash with dump’s -i.
  • The -s option (“split tables”) no longer creates a directory, but instead outputs a small .ttx file containing references to the individual table files. This is not a true link, it’s a simple file name, and the referenced file should be in the same directory so ttcompile can find them.
  • compile no longer accepts a directory as input argument. Instead it can parse the new “mini-ttx” format as output by “ttx -s”.
  • all arguments are input files
  • Renamed the command line programs and moved them to the Tools subdirectory. They are now installed by the setup.py install script.
  • Added OpenType support. BASE, GDEF, GPOS, GSUB and JSTF are (almost) fully supported. The XML output is not yet final, as I’m still considering to output certain subtables in a more human-friendly manner.
  • Fixed ‘kern’ table to correctly accept subtables it doesn’t know about, as well as interpreting Apple’s definition of the ‘kern’ table headers correctly.
  • Fixed bug where glyphnames were not calculated from ‘cmap’ if it was (one of the) first tables to be decompiled. More specifically: it cmap was the first to ask for a glyphID -> glyphName mapping.
  • Switched XML parsers: use expat instead of xmlproc. Should be faster.
  • Removed my UnicodeString object: I now require Python 2.0 or up, which has unicode support built in.
  • Removed assert in glyf table: redundant data at the end of the table is now ignored instead of raising an error. Should become a warning.
  • Fixed bug in hmtx/vmtx code that only occured if all advances were equal.
  • Fixed subtle bug in TT instruction disassembler.
  • Couple of fixes to the ‘post’ table.
  • Updated OS/2 table to latest spec.

1.0b1 (released 2001-08-10)

  • Reorganized the command line interface for ttDump.py and ttCompile.py, they now behave more like “normal” command line tool, in that they accept multiple input files for batch processing.
  • ttDump.py and ttCompile.py don’t silently override files anymore, but ask before doing so. Can be overridden by -f.
  • Added -d option to both ttDump.py and ttCompile.py.
  • Installation is now done with distutils. (Needs work for environments without compilers.)
  • Updated installation instructions.
  • Added some workarounds so as to handle certain buggy fonts more gracefully.
  • Updated Unicode table to Unicode 3.0 (Thanks Antoine!)
  • Included a Python script by Adam Twardoch that adds some useful stuff to the Windows registry.
  • Moved the project to SourceForge.

1.0a6 (released 2000-03-15)

  • Big reorganization: made ttLib a subpackage of the new fontTools package, changed several module names. Called the entire suite “FontTools”
  • Added several submodules to fontTools, some new, some older.
  • Added experimental CFF/GPOS/GSUB support to ttLib, read-only (but XML dumping of GPOS/GSUB is for now disabled)
  • Fixed hdmx endian bug
  • Added -b option to ttCompile.py, it disables recalculation of bounding boxes, as requested by Werner Lemberg.
  • Renamed tt2xml.pt to ttDump.py and xml2tt.py to ttCompile.py
  • Use “.ttx” as file extension instead of “.xml”.
  • TTX is now the name of the XML-based format for TT fonts, and not just an application.

1.0a5

Never released

  • More tables supported: hdmx, vhea, vmtx

1.0a3 & 1.0a4

Never released

  • fixed most portability issues
  • retracted the “Euro_or_currency” change from 1.0a2: it was nonsense!

1.0a2 (released 1999-05-02)

  • binary release for MacOS
  • genenates full FOND resources: including width table, PS font name info and kern table if applicable.
  • added cmap format 4 support. Extra: dumps Unicode char names as XML comments!
  • added cmap format 6 support
  • now accepts true type files starting with “true” (instead of just 0x00010000 and “OTTO”)
  • ‘glyf’ table support is now complete: I added support for composite scale, xy-scale and two-by-two for the ‘glyf’ table. For now, component offset scale behaviour defaults to Apple-style. This only affects the (re)calculation of the glyph bounding box.
  • changed “Euro” to “Euro_or_currency” in the Standard Apple Glyph order list, since we cannot tell from the ‘post’ table which is meant. I should probably doublecheck with a Unicode encoding if available. (This does not affect the output!)

Fixed bugs: - ‘hhea’ table is now recalculated correctly - fixed wrong assumption about sfnt resource names

1.0a1 (released 1999-04-27)

  • initial binary release for MacOS
