    Collection of metrics and encodings for the standard 14 PDF fonts

    This project is a fork of afm and was created for use in pdf-lib. This forks exists for two primary reasons:

    1. The original project did not include mappings from Unicode to WinAnsi/ZapfDingbats/Symbol encodings.
    2. The font metrics included in the original project were uncompressed (not ideal for usage in pdf-lib).

    Usage

    import { Font, FontNames, Encodings } from '@pdf-lib/standard-fonts';
     
    const codePoint = ''.charCodeAt(0);
     
    const glyph = Encodings.Symbol.encodeUnicodeCodePoint(codePoint);
    glyph // => { code: 229, name: 'summation' }
     
    const font = Font.load(FontNames.Symbol);
    const width = font.getWidthOfGlyph(glyph.name);
    width // => 713

    Installation

    NPM Module

    To install the latest stable version:

    # With npm 
    npm install --save @pdf-lib/standard-fonts
     
    # With yarn 
    yarn add @pdf-lib/standard-fonts

    This assumes you're using npm or yarn as your package manager.

    UMD Module

    You can also download @pdf-lib/standard-fonts as a UMD module from unpkg. The UMD builds have been compiled to ES5, so they should work in any modern browser. UMD builds are useful if you aren't using a package manager or module bundler. For example, you can use them directly in the <script> tag of an HTML page.

    The following builds are available:

    When using a UMD build, you will have access to a global window.StandardFonts variable. This variable contains the classes and enums exported by @pdf-lib/standard-fonts. For example:

    // NPM module
    import { Font, FontNames, Encodings } from '@pdf-lib/standard-fonts';
    const font = Font.load(FontNames.HelveticaBold);
    const encoding = Encodings.WinAnsi;
     
    // UMD module
    var font = StandardFonts.Font.load(StandardFonts.FontNames.HelveticaBold);
    var encoding = StandardFonts.Encodings.WinAnsi;
