Modern text rendering with Linux

Came across the following blog so I thought I would give it a try - currently OpenBSD has freetype1, so I am following the process on a AWS Centos 7 machine.

To get the needed libraries I needed

yum install freetype freetype-devel
yum install libpng-devel

To get the correct headers used

pkg-config --cflags freetype2

The makefile was failing to build the program - due to me using /usr/local/include instead of /usr/include with missing headers… advanced muppetry…

Google Fonts

A collection of fonts and that are served by Google.
