FreeType 2 is an open source software font engine designed to be small, efficient, highly customizable and portable.

The FreeType 2 project can be used in graphics libraries, display servers, font conversion tools, text image generation tools, and many other products as well.

System requirements

  • FreeType 2 is written in industry-standard ANSI C and should compile easily with any compliant C compiler. We’ve even taken great care to eliminate all warnings when compiling with popular compilers like gcc, Visual C and Borland C .
  • Apart from a standard ANSI C library, FreeType 2 doesn’t have any external dependencies and can be compiled and installed on its own on any kind of system.
