Now all you need to become a type hacker is a browser, and the magic can happen live while fonts are being used!
Plumin.js is a work in progress and should be considered in alpha state (the API isn't stable nor documented yet). It's a Free and Open-Source Software, MIT licensed and hosted on Github (a cozy place where free-range code thrives, and bugs are hunted down).
It's developped in parallel with Prototypo, an online app that uses parametric typefaces to design fonts faster. You can expect frequent updates and improvements in Plumin.js and upstream projects it uses: Paper.js and opentype.js.
We need help getting Font and Glyph types merged into Paper.js and properly documented. Join our chat-room if you want to give a hand!
"opentype.js is an OpenType and TrueType font parser. It allows you to access the letterforms of text from the browser or node.js." It can also be used to modify glyphs or create new ones, and is able to export the corresponding OpenType fonts.
