TTFSampler is a utility that takes a list of TrueType fonts on the command line and generates a sample sheet in PDF format. The sample sheet contains several lines of text with each line demonstrating the appearance of a different font.
The latest version is v0.5.
GNU GPL v3 or later. See the COPYING file for details.
Usage: ./ttfsampler.py [-fSv] [-s font-size] [-t text] -o output.pdf font.ttf... Create a sample sheet from a list of TrueType fonts. -f Skip broken or duplicate fonts rather than returning an error. -S Don't sort. Fonts will be displayed in the order specified on the command line. -t Specify text to render instead of the default of using the font name. (When this option is enabled, the font name will be displayed before the rendered text.) -v Increase verbosity.
The package now includes gTTFSampler, a GUI front-end to TTFSampler.
Version 0.5 works around some problematic fonts, improves the GUI, fixes some GUI bugs, and warns Windows users about a bug I couldn't fix.
The latest TTFSampler code is stored in a git repository, which you can access in the following ways:
git clone git://git.dlitz.net/ttfsampler.git
