Cloning

First clone this repository, when you have no account on the Constant gitlab use:

http://gitlab.constantvzw.org/osp/workshop.dirty-variables.git You'll not be able to push without an account

If you have an account use:

git@gitlab.constantvzw.org:osp/workshop.dirty-variables.git

Some example fonts were added as a submodule, retrieve them with the following commands:

git submodule init git submodule update

Inspector

We are using Fonttools, which ttx format is a clear xml dump of every table present in a (variable) font. See https://github.com/fonttools/fonttools

Our tailor-made inspector web tool displays the content of ttx files, simply "Load the ttx file" then select the glyph to preview in the dropdown menu.
