Shoebot is a graphics robot: It takes a Python script as input, which describes a drawing process, and outputs a graphic in a common open standard format (SVG, PDF, PostScript, or PNG).
The Shoebot repository uses Mercurial and Trac and is generously hosted at the wonderful GOTO10 servers.
Lettersoup is an attempt to propose a different way to design and manipulate typefaces, away from the conventions of traditional type design software.
