Project Title:

Tamil Fonts for GNU/Linux

Aim

This project aims at creating new unicode Tamil fonts and fixing bugs in already existing Tamil fonts for GNU/Linux [1]. The total number of Tamil fonts properly free software licensed and made available at GNU/Linux [1] distributions are very little. Not all fonts that we use today for Tamil are perfect Unicode [2] fonts. That made us to start to this project and contribute to tamil computing.

Modules Involved

  • 1. Font Designing (artistic work)
  • 2. Unicode Mapping (mapping designed character to unicode number/string)
  • 3. Combination Rules (For deverived letter and words)
