code

Typophiles here might be interested in this praiseworthy endeavour by a programmer who’s designing his own monospace font for coding. For now, one weight and one style only, but he seems to have quite a few optical sizes in mind (probably without him even realizing what that means).

The designer/developer (Pablo Caro) explicitely asks for criticism, so he can take constructive feedback into account while developing further. His sample text settings were posted on Hacker News (a popular forum for coders and programmers), where they’re being discussed. By hackers. For typophiles it’s anyhow interesting to read how programmers rationalize about type design, without the burden (?) of tradition and jargon: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6354396

Hello! I know this an incredibly stupid font to ask you to name, but it would be nice to know. I've only seen it on Windows computers, and have seen it many times before. Does anyone know this font's name, if so... is it also downloadable?

In this specific case, this was just a screenshot I took from a youtube video. Do not mind what is says, it won't make any sense. Heh Heh.

I'm trying to convert a collection of Windows Postscript files to OTF on OSX. For that, I decided to go with Fontforge because I can batch-process them with scripts in the terminal. I know little bash-scripting and no Python, but have been able to modify a script on the Fontforge site to do this: http://fontforge.sourceforge.net/scripting-tutorial.html

Has anyone ever found a way to output items like the GSUB Feature values, back out to say imagemagick? For example, sending unicode values is no problem, but since items like SALTS don't have a unicode value, how can you print those items to image in say imagemagick/php? Any ideas?

How about this, folks?

Hey people, can you ID this coding, pixel font for me?

Thanks,
Lochan

Hi! My very first post - logged in because of this question.
I want to make the following rule in OT font:

(in human language) If the word ends with "r", it should be substituted with "r.alt"

So far I've been trying to understand FL manual, search this forum and google for tutorials, but with no luck at all.
