Python Fonts

Project description

Python Fonts

A Python framework for distributing and managing fonts.


While Python can access system fonts, it has no direct way of guaranteeing a particular font is available, or any way of including it as a dependency.

Fonts aims to tackle this problem with tools for packaging and distributing fonts via PyPi, which can be easily located and used in Python using PIL or otherwise.


Fonts uses entry_points to expose the font files located in each package.

To use these fonts in your project you should include them as a dependency and either grab the font paths using pkg_resources.iter_entry_points('fonts_ttf') or use this fonts module to collate them for you.

For example:

from PIL import ImageFont
from fonts.ttf import AmaticSC
font = ImageFont.truetype(AmaticSC)



  • Added otf support
