New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
First off, I have zero experience with coding and syntax for proper output.
I have just finished a typeface with the usual ligatures (fl, fi, ffl, ffi, even st & ct) and I want to make the ligatures automatic instead of being forced to navigate to the glyphs palette and manually apply ligatures.
I know the answer is in Robofab or Python but I do not have any experience with them and can't find a decent walk-through in the context of type design, specifically ligatures (since Python does all sorts of applications, type design being one).
Is there not a standard snippet of code that applies to all typefaces that automates the ligatures? "when U+0066 & U+0066 appear consecutively with U+FB00"?
I presume not.
Also, I use Fontographer 5.
Thanks in advance.
