The Freetype font rasterizer in the Go programming language.
To download and install from source:
$ go get github.com/golang/freetype
It is an incomplete port:
* It only supports TrueType fonts, and not Type 1 fonts nor bitmap fonts.
* It only supports the Unicode encoding.
There are also some implementation differences:
* It uses a 26.6 fixed point co-ordinate system everywhere internally,
as opposed to the original Freetype's mix of 26.6 (or 10.6 for 16-bit
systems) in some places, and 24.8 in the "smooth" rasterizer.
