💾 Install 🎮 Quick start 📋 Testing 😍 Acknowledgements 👤 Contributing 💼 License

aglfn is a small utility to access AGLFN names easily in Python. Many software tools for new typefaces often referes to glyphs with this names. Some typography tools tend to hardcode the aglfn.txt file and parse it, so this is an attempt to have the submodule of the AGLFN repository without inglobe those files each time in our repos.

AGFLN is a subset of the AGL list intended to provide a baselist of glyphs for a new Latin font. More detailed information could be found on the repo and on the AGL specification.
