Re-exported ab_glyph types.


Id for a font.

A positioned glyph with info relating to the SectionText from which it was derived.

Text to layout together using a font & scale.


Built-in linebreaking logic.

Describes horizontal alignment preference for positioning & bounds.

Built-in GlyphPositioner implementations.

Indicator that a character is a line break, soft or hard. Includes the offset (byte-index) position.

Describes vertical alignment preference for positioning & bounds. Currently a placeholder for future functionality.


Logic to calculate glyph positioning using Font, SectionGeometry and SectionText.

Producer of a LineBreak iterator. Used to allow to the Layout to be line break aware in a generic way.
