glaze is a Python library and command line tool for rendering algorithmically-generated fonts and typefaces.

Table of Contents

Demo

>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> from glaze import read_json, render
>>>
>>> font = read_json("data/Georgia.json")
>>> font_name, glyph_name, glyph = font[0]
>>> render(glyph)
>>> plt.show()

Rendered glyph (lowercase g)

Installation

The latest release of glaze can be installed from PyPI:

pip install glaze

Usage

To use glaze as a library:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from glaze import render

fig = render(contours)  # Render one glyph

To run glaze on the command line:

# Recommended usage
glaze --directory PATH/TO/DATA/

# Alternative usage
glaze --files FILES
  1. The --directory must have the following structure:

    data
    ├── json
    │   ├── Georgia.json
    │   └── ...
    └── ...

    where the .json files are those produced by knead. Renders will be saved in a directory data/renders-TTTT-DD-MM/, where TTTT is military time.

  2. However, should you want to render only a few files, you can use the --files flag, which must be one of:

    • a path to a .json file (again, such as those produced by knead),
    • a comma-separated list of such paths, or
    • a regex matching the path(s) to one or more .json files.

Renders will be saved in the present working directory (unless the --output flag is passed).

Refer to our quickstart for more information on how to use glaze.
