fontaine 1.0.9

Fontaine font tool

Latest Version: 1.1.4

pyfontaine is a python reimplementation of [Fontaine]( (by Ed Trager) which analyses fonts for language support. It has a simple character set definition format ([Polish example]( and autodetects new definition files that appear in the [charmaps]( directory.

It has a command line tool. Given a font, it returns the font's metadata found directly in the font (family name, style name, copyrights, etc) and then infers some useful metadata about its language support (coverage as 4-stars, as percentage, and a list of missing characters needed to get to 100%).

It has a python module. [Example script]( from the Font Bakery project.

pyfontaine has been made so far by @hash3g and @davelab6 and @xen, and your contributions are welcome!
