Source Code Pro

Overview

Source Code Pro is a set of OpenType fonts that have been designed to work well in user interface (UI) environments. In addition to a functional OpenType font, this open source project provides all of the source files that were used to build this OpenType font by using the AFDKO makeotf tool.

Getting Involved

Send suggestions for changes to the Source Code OpenType font project maintainer, phunt@adobe.com, for consideration.

Building

Pre-built font binaries

The font binaries are not part of the source files. They are provided in the Downloads section.

Requirements

For building binary font files from source, installation of the Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType (AFDKO) is necessary. The AFDKO tools are widely used for font development today, and are part of most font editor applications.

Building one font

Key to building OTF or TTF fonts is makeotf, which is part of the AFDKO toolset.
Information and usage instructions can be found by executing makeotf -h.

In this repository, all necessary files are in place for building the OTF and TTF fonts.
For example, build a binary OTF font for the Regular style like this:

$ cd Roman/Regular/
$ makeotf -r

Building all fonts

For convenience, a shell script named build.sh is provided in the root directory.
It builds all OTFs and TTFs, and can be executed by typing:

$ ./build.sh
