Crate freetype[][src]

Expand description

Rust wrapper around freetype 2 library


To create a new freetype context, instantiate the Library struct as below. The Library (along with other objects) obeys RAII and is dropped when the struct goes out of scope.


extern crate freetype;

fn main() {
    use freetype::Library;
    use freetype::face::LoadFlag;

    // Init the library
    let lib = Library::init().unwrap();
    // Load a font face
    let face = lib.new_face("/path/to/a/font/file.ttf", 0).unwrap();
    // Set the font size
    face.set_char_size(40 * 64, 0, 50, 0).unwrap();
    // Load a character
    face.load_char('A' as usize, LoadFlag::RENDER).unwrap();
    // Get the glyph instance
    let glyph = face.glyph();

See in the examples/ folder for more examples.
