Converting Robofont plugins to Glyphs


I have come across a number of good Robofont scripts / plugins on Github and I was just curious, how easy / hard is it to port them over to Glyphs? Is it just a matter of repackaging the python scripts into a different folder structure within the extension itself?

There are some steps to do. Scripts should work if they don’t use RoboFont specific stuff. Plugins are a bit more work as the API is quite different. See the word-o-mat plugin for reference. It is a direct port from RF to Glyphs.

Ok thanks - I will check that repo out and have a play :slight_smile:

and of cause check, mekkablues repos and the GlyphsSDK
