A lightweight TrueType font rendering library
libschrift is a lightweight TrueType font rendering library.
It can be seen as a much smaller, but more limited alternative to FreeType2.
Specifically, libschrift aims to: - Be as suckless as possible. See: https://www.suckless.org/philosophy/ - Make correct (as in artifact-free, UTF-8 handling etc.) font rendering easy-to-use. - Be reasonably secure, which especially means to not crash, leak memory / resources or expose major security vulnerabilities on corrupted / malicious / random input.
For documentation on how to use libschrift in your own programs, refer to the schrift(3) man page, the source code of the bundled example program sftdemo, as well as the header file schrift.h.
You can also view the man page in your browser at http://tomolt.github.io/libschrift/
libschrift isn't ready for serious use yet. Altough most features are in place by now, there is still a lot of testing against real-world font files to be done.
