TTX and FontTools 2.4

A command-line tool to effortlessly convert OpenType and TrueType fonts to/from XML
Typeface production is now a lot easier with the TTX and FontTools application, which provides an open source alternative to proprietary and expensive programs that allow you to easily convert TrueType and OpenType fonts to and from the XML (Extensible Markup Language) format.

The FontTools part of the project is actually a library written in Python and used by the TTX program to manipulate fonts, supporting OpenType, TrueType, AFM, Type 1, as well as various Mac OS X specific formats.

Being written in Python, TTX and FontTools is a platform independent application that supports the Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
