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.

Repo URL Change Note

We recently changed the repo URI for Source Code Pro. If you have forked or cloned the repo you will have to make updates to your local version.

First check your remote repositories

git remote -v

Usually you will have origin (in the case of a clone) and something like upstream if you've forked the repo. To update those you need to run

git remote set-url origin https://github.com/adobe/source-code-pro.git

If you have other remote repositories you will need to run that command again and replace origin with the name of the remote repository (eg upstream).

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
