Scour

Scour

Scour is an SVG optimizer/cleaner that reduces the size of scalable vector graphics by optimizing structure and removing unnecessary data written in Python.
It can be used to create streamlined vector graphics suitable for web deployment, publishing/sharing or further processing.
The goal of Scour is to output a file that renderes identically at a fraction of the size by removing a lot of redundant information created by most SVG editors. Optimization options are typically lossless but can be tweaked for more agressive cleaning.
Scour is open-source and licensed under Apache License 2.0.
Scour was originally developed by Jeff “codedread” Schiller and Louis Simard in in 2010. The project moved to GitLab in 2013 an is now maintained by Tobias “oberstet” Oberstein and Eduard “Ede_123” Braun.

Adobe Latin Character Sets

These character sets are informative, not normative. They are guidelines. We reserve the right to update, modify, replace or withdraw them at any time without prior notice.
The Unicode standard is continually evolving, and for this reason these character sets are not set in stone. The likelihood of the larger charsets to be changed is greater than that of the smaller ones. For instance, it’s unlikely that AL1 or AL2 will ever change, but AL3 and above have changed since they were first defined — the original version of AL3 didn’t include the turkish lira nor the ruble. Also, a change in the smaller charsets naturally triggers a change in the larger ones.
We consider AL5 an open-ended set. Additions to it may be the result of 1) changes in AL4 and below, 2) additions to Unicode that have a direct relationship to characters already supported, 3) requests and recommendations from external parties/sources, 4) internal decisions, and 5) eventual bug fixes. The AL1 thru AL4 sets are definitely less volatile and any changes to them go thru a stricter vetting process. Any new characters that we decide to support for which there’s no strong justification to attach to AL1-4 end up added to AL5.

boxDrawing.py

This script will draw the complete range of Box Drawing Characters and Block Elements in the font editor of your choice.
The design of those characters is based on a handful of parameters, which can be changed in the script file itself. Feel free to create Box Drawing Characters that are longer than usual; exceedingly wide, fat (both?); or hairline-thin.
Time was spent to make this script compatible with the triumvirate of commercial font editing applications; this means that this script will run in RoboFont, Glyphs, and even FontLab without any modifications (Glyphs support experimental).
You can even run the script straight from the command line, which will generate a new UFO file right to your desktop.

How to publish on GitHub

How to publish your local project on GitHub using command line
How to publish your local project on GitHub using command line

I have been currently learning how to use Git using the command line. Git is one of the most popular version control systems (VCS) and if you use any kind of VCS for your development, I am sure you should be familiar with the benefits of using Git.
Along with Git, another useful platform that enhances the code sharing abilities and remote working possibilities is GitHub – a popular Git repository hosting service. Using Git and Github can be an essential skill to learn if you want to write code, work in a group, and contribute to open source software such as WordPress.
