I'm just getting started with Robofab. I'm trying to use it in
"NoneLab" mode, ie. I don't have FontLab.
My goal is to figure out how to write a new .ufo file, then convert
it to .ttf. I'm using robofab, ufo2fdk and the Adobe FDK on OS X.
I'm successfully writing a .ttf file, but OS X's "Font Book" utility
won't open the font, which suggests it is corrupt, incomplete or
I'm using this script:
Which prints this output:
And it writes this ttf file:
My script is pieced together from the examples on http://robofab.org/.
Unfortunately, none of the examples describe how to write create/
configure a font object from scratch, ie. that isn't read or
interpolated from an existing font file.
I'm wondering if I'm doing something obviously wrong. Any help
would be appreciated.
