Fonty Python - manage fonts on Gnu/Linux
Manage your fonts on Gnu/Linux. NEWS : We now support TTF, OTF, Type1 (PFB, PFM) and TTC fonts.
Many designers have collections of font files in big directory structures or on other media. Fonty Python will let you gather your fonts and structure them into collections – or what I call “Pogs” – a place to keep tyPOGraphy. Well, why not?
Your fonts never move from where they are (so don’t worry). All that happens is that you select fonts visually and place their names into a Pog, then you install or uninstall Pogs as you need them. No copies of your fonts are made, only links to the original files are used to install the fonts.
For example, you might have a Pog called “logos” into which you place all the ttfs you have of company logos. After that, when you need to work with those logos, you simply install the ‘logos’ Pog and start your design app!
FP is also great for just looking at fonts wherever they are on your computer, without having to install them system-wide.
