A ffi binding of FreeType 2.




Look at the bottom of the source file for method names for each object type. Use the demo and test files for usage examples.

Use the FreeType docs for knowledge about fonts and rasterization.


The included freetype binary is a stripped build of freetype. In particular, font formats other than ttf and cff are not supported. Also, the patent-encumbered LCD filtering is enabled, so it may well be illegal to use this binary in your country. If unsure, compile your own.
