« Some free FontLab scripts for type designers

I have started posting a few scripts in my own repository on GitHub. They are libre (free, open source) under an Apache 2.0 license.


Unfortunately, my “best” (or at least most complicated) script is very specific to my workflow on developing my Cristoforo family (it does the steps detailed at the bottom of this blog post). It is a heavily modified version of Ben Kiel’s “Better Generate Font” script. I chose not to post it as the workflow is just so very peculiar to my needs and does things like put my license URLs in the font, but if you want it for some reason, perhaps as a starting point, ping me.

    Why not post it with the too-​specific parts turned into variables? 🙂

    I’m happy to supply it to anybody else who’d like to do that….

    But really most of the customization I did of the original script is specific to my workflow.
