FontTools-based package for querying system fonts

Project description

FontTools-based package for querying system fonts

TTFQuery builds on the FontTools package to allow the Python programmer to accomplish a number of tasks:

* query the system to find installed fonts
* retrieve metadata about any TTF font file (even those not yet
installed)
o abstract family type
o proper font name
o glyph outlines
* build simple metadata registries for run-time font matching

With these functionalities, it is possible to readily
create OpenGL solid-text rendering libraries which
can accept abstract font-family names as font specifiers
and deliver platform-specific TTF files to match those libraries.

TTFQuery doesn't provide rendering services, but a sample
implementation can be found in the OpenGLContext project, from
which TTFQuery was refactored.
