Command line Unicode character code point and character name search
What is font-unicode?
font-unicode is a command line application that performs searches for Unicode character names by Unicode code points, and for Unicode code points by character names. It supports the Unicode standard v8.0.0. The query results are supplemented with the Adobe Glyph List for New Fonts v1.7 glyph names where applicable.
Install with pip using the command:
$ pip install font-unicode
or download the source repository, unpack it, and navigate to the top level of the repository. Then enter:
$ python setup.py install
Search by Unicode Code Point
$ font-unicode search [Unicode code point 1] [...Unicode code point X]
You can use either the u+0000 or 0000 format for the Unicode code point queries. Include one or more queries to the search command.
Search by Unicode Character Name
$ font-unicode name [Unicode character name query 1] [...Unicode character name query X]
Include one or more character name search terms as arguments to the name command. Surround multi-word queries with quotes. You can include multiple searches in the same command.
Pipe Raw Data to Another Executable
You can pipe the raw Adobe Glyph List for New Fonts to other executables with the list command:
$ font-unicode list agl | [other executable]
The raw Unicode Standard v8.0.0 names list can be piped to other executables with the list command:
$ font-unicode list unicode | [other executable]
For example, you could use grep to locate a Unicode code point in the semicolon delimited Adobe Glyph List like this:
$ font-unicode list agl | grep '012E' 012E;Iogonek;LATIN CAPITAL LETTER I WITH OGONEK
