I am going through some bizarre behavior in the macro panel with regards to path.
f = Glyphs.font ROOT_PATH = '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/' print(ROOT_PATH) # '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/' for instance in f.instances: if instance.active: instance.generate( Format=OTF, FontPath=ROOT_PATH )
Now, if I just make the following change, it doesn’t export to the ‘otf’ folder. After all, ROOT_PATH is a string! Why doesn’t this work!? I think I am going crazy.
import os f = Glyphs.font ROOT_PATH = '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/' OTF_PATH = os.path.join(ROOT_PATH, 'otf') print(OTF_PATH) # '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/otf' for instance in f.instances: if instance.active: instance.generate( Format=OTF, FontPath=OTF_PATH )
The fonts still go to
Any ideas I think I spent way too much time on this with no luck.
I also tried
ROOT_PATH = '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/' + 'otf' and surely this is a string object in python. It still goes to the export folder and never makes a new otf folder.
ROOT_PATH = '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/' + 'otf'
ROOT_PATH = '/Users/yourusername/fonts/export/otf'
My goal is to automate exports of various font formats in their own folder.
