Fontify - create your own font from handwriting. Just download and fill the template, scan and upload, then you can install your own font or use it as webfont.

How we built it

We build Fonfity using Python and a ton of shell scripts. The under the hood process including multiple steps:

  1. Crop the scanned image based on the border lines
  2. Split the cropped into smaller images, each one is for a character
  3. Trace all the small images, generate SVG files
  4. Combine all SVG files into TTF and WOFF files

What’s next for Fontify

We are planning to support custom code points and Chinese.
