    detect-kerning unstable Build Status

    Calculate kerning pairs for a font.

    npm install detect-kerning

    const kerning = require('detect-kerning')
     
    let pairs = kerning('Roboto')
     
    /*
    {
        'A”': -10,
        'W.': -5,
        'P,': -3,
        ...
    }
    */
     
    // get px kerning for 16px font-size
    let px = 16 * pairs['AV'] / 1000

    pairs = kerning(family|familyList, pairs|range|options?)

    Detect kerning pairs for the font family or stack of families and return their kerning in 1000 units/em. Optionally pass specific kerning pairs to check, or a unicode range, by default all printable ASCII character pairs are detected from the [32, 126] range. Alternatively, an options object can define:

    • options.pairs - specific pairs to check;
    • options.range - unicode range to detect pairs from;
    • options.fontSize - base font size to use for check. Can affect performance, by default 16.
    • options.threshold - font size (em) ratio to detect kerning, by default 0.05. Values below that number can bloat kerning table size.
