# Freetype GL - A C OpenGL Freetype engine
[![Build Status Travis](](
[![Build Status Appveyor](](
A small library for displaying Unicode in OpenGL using a single texture and
a single vertex buffer.
[Installation instructions](
## Code organization
### Mandatory files
* **texture-font**: The texture-font structure is in charge of creating bitmap
glyphs and to upload them to the texture atlas.
* **texture-atlas**: This structure is responsible for the packing of small
regions into a bigger texture. It is based on the skyline
bottom left algorithm which appear to be well suited for
storing glyphs. More information at:
* **vector**: This structure loosely mimics the std::vector class from
c++. It is used by texture-atlas (for storing nodes),
texture-font (for storing glyphs) and font-manager (for
storing fonts). More information at:
### Optional files
* **markup**: Simple structure that describes text properties (font
family, font size, colors, underline, etc.)
* **font-manager**: Structure in charge of caching fonts.
* **vertex-buffer**: Generic vertex buffer structure inspired by pyglet
(python). (more information at
* **edtaa3func**: Distance field computation by Stefan Gustavson
(more information at
* **makefont**: Allow to generate header file with font information
(texture + glyphs) such that it can be used without
