# transformPen

class fontTools.pens.transformPen.TransformPen(outPen, transformation)[source]

Pen that transforms all coordinates using a Affine transformation, and passes them to another pen.

Add a sub glyph. The ‘transformation’ argument must be a 6-tuple containing an affine transformation, or a Transform object from the fontTools.misc.transform module. More precisely: it should be a sequence containing 6 numbers.

closePath()[source]

Close the current sub path. You must call either pen.closePath() or pen.endPath() after each sub path.

curveTo(*points)[source]

Draw a cubic bezier with an arbitrary number of control points.

The last point specified is on-curve, all others are off-curve (control) points. If the number of control points is > 2, the segment is split into multiple bezier segments. This works like this:

Let n be the number of control points (which is the number of arguments to this call minus 1). If n==2, a plain vanilla cubic bezier is drawn. If n==1, we fall back to a quadratic segment and if n==0 we draw a straight line. It gets interesting when n>2: n-1 PostScript-style cubic segments will be drawn as if it were one curve. See decomposeSuperBezierSegment().

The conversion algorithm used for n>2 is inspired by NURB splines, and is conceptually equivalent to the TrueType “implied points” principle. See also decomposeQuadraticSegment().

endPath()[source]

End the current sub path, but don’t close it. You must call either pen.closePath() or pen.endPath() after each sub path.

lineTo(pt)[source]

Draw a straight line from the current point to ‘pt’.

moveTo(pt)[source]

Begin a new sub path, set the current point to ‘pt’. You must end each sub path with a call to pen.closePath() or pen.endPath().

qCurveTo(*points)[source]

Draw a whole string of quadratic curve segments.

The last point specified is on-curve, all others are off-curve points.

This method implements TrueType-style curves, breaking up curves using ‘implied points’: between each two consequtive off-curve points, there is one implied point exactly in the middle between them. See also decomposeQuadraticSegment().

The last argument (normally the on-curve point) may be None. This is to support contours that have NO on-curve points (a rarely seen feature of TrueType outlines).

class fontTools.pens.transformPen.TransformPointPen(outPointPen, transformation)[source]

PointPen that transforms all coordinates using a Affine transformation, and passes them to another PointPen.

```>>> from fontTools.pens.recordingPen import RecordingPointPen
>>> rec = RecordingPointPen()
>>> pen = TransformPointPen(rec, (2, 0, 0, 2, -10, 5))
>>> v = iter(rec.value)
>>> pen.beginPath(identifier="contour-0")
>>> next(v)
('beginPath', (), {'identifier': 'contour-0'})
>>> pen.addPoint((100, 100), "line")
>>> next(v)
('addPoint', ((190, 205), 'line', False, None), {})
>>> pen.endPath()
>>> next(v)
('endPath', (), {})
>>> pen.addComponent("a", (1, 0, 0, 1, -10, 5), identifier="component-0")
>>> next(v)
('addComponent', ('a', <Transform [2 0 0 2 -30 15]>), {'identifier': 'component-0'})
```

Add a sub glyph.

addPoint(pt, segmentType=None, smooth=False, name=None, **kwargs)[source]

Add a point to the current sub path.

beginPath(**kwargs)

Start a new sub path.

endPath()

End the current sub path.
