Yes, I’m currently using Python 2.7 for this. Fontforge implements Python internally but also optionally extends Python if you compile it with “./configure --enable-pyextension”. I used to have it working, now it doesn’t. This could be Mojave, or Homebrew, something broke it and I can’t remember what I did to get it working when I last needed it but I recall having to pass options to Homebrew.
Thats the repo for the fonts I’ve created. There are some updates to Unicode coming and I need to make some changes for that.
