RoboFont is the most flexible font editor out there, in terms of extensibility and scriptability. It’s used by many type designers and major type design firms, and it’s often explicitly valued for those qualities. In this two day workshop you’ll get to learn the basics of Python scripting with RoboFont. You’ll write little scripts that do useful things as well as get a glimpse of how to write more complex things like extensions with a GUI.
For this workshop *some* Python experience is required. You either have learned some Python on your own or elsewhere, or have followed the “Python Programming with DrawBot for Beginners” workshop in the two days prior to this workshop.
You will need a MacBook running OSX 10.9 or up, and a recent copy of RoboFont. Upon request, a temporary RoboFont trial license can be provided for the duration of the workshop.
