I'm a Python developer dabbling in font creation for the first time as a side hobby using FontForge 2017-07-31 over XQuartz 2.7.11 on MacOS 10.12.6
My goal is to create a series of novelty fonts for personal use. I can do the tasks manually via the UI, but I need to automate these tasks via scripting and am not sure whether the menu item in question ("Insert Text Outline...") has a corresponding API call.
I'm open to using tools other than FontForge if necessary, though free is certainly preferable.
What's the best community for such a query? The closest match I posted under was TEX, but doesn't feel quite right so wondering if there's a better...?
