SILGraphite is a system that can be used to create and use "smart fonts"
capable of displaying writing systems with various complex behaviors, such
as: contextual shaping, ligatures, reordering, split glyphs,
bidirectionality, stacking diacritics and complex positioning.
This library was designed and developed by the NRSI (Non-Roman Script
Initiative) within SIL International ( to act as a complement to
other smart font rendering technologies with limited practical local
extensability. Its purpose is to help meet the needs of a very large number
of "minority language" communities for local extensibility of complex script
The behavior of the SILGraphite rendering engine for a given writing system is
specified through extra tables added to a TrueType font. These tables are
generated by compiling a GDL (Graphite Description Language) source file into
a font using gdlcomp.
This package contains a pango module so that apps that use pango get
graphite capabilities.
