FontTools-based package for querying system fonts.

TTFQuery builds on the FontTools package to allow the Python programmer to accomplish a number of tasks:

  • query the system to find installed fonts
  • retrieve metadata about any TTF font file (even those not yet installed)
  • o abstract family type

o proper font name
o glyph outlines

  • build simple metadata registries for run-time font matching
