Hari - Another Handwriting Script Font

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Thu May 19, 2016 7:39 am

Hari is a hand-writing script derived from Allura by Robert E. Leuschke, released under the SIL license. Version 1.10 includes 627 glyphs and OpenType features for Standard and Discretionary Ligatures, Ordinals, Superscripts, Subscripts, Scientific Inferiors, and Standard Fractions. The default figures are proportional, but there are OpenType Tabular Figures, and OldStyle Figures. Over 200 glyphs were added for these features, and hinting was added. The archive includes a WOFF version.

I intend to keep these script fonts small for embedding on web sites, so I won't be adding all of the usual Symbols and Dingbats, but adding more composite glyphs doesn't add much to the file size. Let me know if there are any important glyphs that you need for your language, and I will consider adding them. I use FontCreator's Eastern Europe Glyph Transform script to add the composites needed for most Eastern European languages that use Roman scripts.

Version 1.01 improved some discretionary ligatures and added a Rupee Sign (Rs).

Did you create the Hari font yourself?

Hari was updated to version 1.10 using FontCreator 10.1

  1. I added just the lowercase superscripts required for the Ordinals feature
  2. I add white circle and black circle for Full Moon and New Moon
  3. I added kerning classes for Capitals, and many more kerning pairs. ALL CAPS is not generally be used with a script font but acronyms like TTF do need to be kerned to avoid horrible clashes.
  4. I added historical ligatures for long s
