For the users of the font editor programs “FontLab” and “Glyph” Ben Timms from Steinberg friendly provides a great collection of very usefull scripts to help in the preparation of SMuFL-compliant fonts.
Among them I desesperately tried to create/adapt on my own for FontForge one particular script called “add_anchors” but after several weeks work I must give up as this task is simply too difficult for me.
My request is:
Could Steinberg or someone knowledgeable provide these scripts for FontForge?
I am of course aware of Robert Piéchaud great script for FontForge “generate_font_metadata”, it helps already a lot.
But I found out that under certain circumstances this script may not be enough and many things still remain to solve when creating a metadata file.
Here are the available scripts for Glyph:
And for FontLab:
These scripts are available here:
