defcon is a set of UFO based objects optimized for use in font editing applications. The objects are built to be lightweight, fast and flexible. The objects are very bare-bones and they are not meant to be end-all, be-all objects. Rather, they are meant to provide base functionality so that you can focus on your application’s behavior, not object observing or maintaining cached data.
defcon is very easy to use:
from defcon import Font font = Font() # now do some stuff!
