I’m speaking at ATypi 2011 in Reykjavik.
The missing UFO editor: Filling the gap (aka RoboFont)
A presentation about a writing a UFO based font editor.
In the range of UFO tools, available or under contractions, the main editor was still missing.That will change with this presentation.
RoboFont is an interactive drawing board for fonts and glyphs. Entirely written in Python and based on Defcon and Robofab (by Tal Leming, Erik van Blokland and Just van Rossum) the editor allows full scripting access to objects and interface. The application is made for dynamic interaction with existing UFO applications.
Examples of additional tools and scripts will be shown as extensions to the application. The application is a project by Frederik Berlaen with support of Petr van Blokland and David Berlow.
