´╗┐This is a README for the font compression reference code. There are several compression related modules in this repository.

brotli/ contains reference code for the Brotli byte-level compression algorithm. Note that it is licensed under an Apache 2 license.

src/ contains the C++ code for compressing and decompressing fonts.

Build & Run

This document documents how to run the compression reference code. At this writing, the code, while it is intended to produce a bytestream that can be reconstructed into a working font, the reference decompression code is not done, and the exact format of that bytestream is subject to change.

Build

On a standard Unix-style environment:

git clone https://github.com/google/woff2.git
cd woff2
git submodule init
git submodule update
make clean all

Run

woff2_compress myfont.ttf
woff2_decompress myfont.woff2
