type Context

type Context struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Context represents a single freetype context which must not be accessed concurrently (typically each thread/goroutine uses a single context).

func Init

func Init() (*Context, error)

Init initializes and returns a new freetype context, or returns a error.

func (*Context) Load

func (c *Context) Load(fontFileData []byte) (*Font, error)

Load loads and returns the given font file data and returns the loaded font or an error.

type Font

type Font struct {

	// Bounding box that is large enough to contain any glyph in the font face.
	// Expressed in font units.
	BBox image.Rectangle

	// The number of font units per EM square for this font face.
	// Expressed in font units.
	UnitsPerEm int

	// The typographic ascender of the face
	// Expressed in font units.
	Ascender int

	// The typographic descender of the face.
	// Expressed in font units.
	Descender int

	// The vertical distance between two consecutive baselines.
	// Expressed in font units.
	LineHeight int

	// The maximum advance width for all glyphs in this face.
	// This can be used to make word wrapping computations faster.
	// Expressed in font units.
	MaxAdvanceWidth int

	// The maximum advance height, for all glyphs in this face.
	// This is only relevant for vertical layouts, and is set to ‘height’
	// for fonts that do not provide vertical metrics.
	// Expressed in font units.
	MaxAdvanceHeight int

	// The position of the underline for this font face.
	// Expressed in font units.
	UnderlinePosition int

	// The thickness for the underline of this font face.
	// Expressed in font units.
	UnderlineThickness int
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Font represents a single Freetype font.

func (*Font) Index

func (f *Font) Index(r rune) (glyphIndex uint)

Index returns the glyph index for the given rune.

func (*Font) Kerning

func (f *Font) Kerning(leftGlyph, rightGlyph rune) (x, y int, e error)

Kerning returns the X/Y kerning pair for the left and right horizontally aligned glyphs, or x=0, y=0, and a error.

func (*Font) Load

func (f *Font) Load(glyphIndex uint) (*Glyph, error)

Load loads the given glyph index into the font's glyph slot and returns the glyph.

func (*Font) SetSize

func (f *Font) SetSize(width, height, xResolution, yResolution int) error

SetSize sets the current size of the font given 26.6 width and height units and X/Y axis resolutions.

func (*Font) SetSizePixels

func (f *Font) SetSizePixels(width, height int) error

SetSizePixels sets the current size of the font given width and height pixel based units.

type Glyph

type Glyph struct {

	// Width and height of glyph.
	// Expressed in font units.
	Width, Height int

	// Horizontal and vertical glyph metrics.
	HMetrics, VMetrics GlyphMetrics
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Glyph represents a single renderable glyph.

func (*Glyph) Image

func (g *Glyph) Image() (*GlyphImage, error)

Renders and returns a alpha image, it is returned as *GlyphImage because a reference internally must be held to this *Glyph.

The returned glyph image's data resides in a single slot held by the font this glyph came from, as such you must ensure you only use a single GlyphImage from the same font source at any given time (or make a copy of the returned image).

type GlyphImage

type GlyphImage struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

GlyphImage is literally just *image.Alpha, except it must hold a pointer internally to *Glyph to avoid a garbage collection invoking finalizers which free the image data.

type GlyphMetrics

type GlyphMetrics struct {
	// Left side bearing and top side bearing
	// X values extend to the right, and positive Y values downward.
	// Expressed in font units.
	BearingX, BearingY int

	// Advance (and unhinted advance) amount of glyph.
	// For horizontal metrics, a positive value means advancing to the right.
	// For vertical metrics, a positive value means advancing downward.
	// Expressed in font units.
	Advance, UnhintedAdvance int

GlyphMetrics contains metrics of a single glyph.
