Extracting Font Outline informations

P: n/a
Hi,

there is a Python library that makes me able to extract outline
informations from font files? I'd like to manage TrueType and FreeType
fonts ...

I searched for som wrappers, but I didn't find anything ...

TTFQuery, built on top of FontTools, allows you to do this. You can see
use of the extraction in the OpenGLContext/scenegraph/text package,
which uses TTFQuery to implement 3D text rendering.
