fonttools: Converts OpenType and TrueType fonts to and from XML

 FontTools/TTX is a library to manipulate font files from Python.
 It supports reading and writing of TrueType/OpenType fonts, reading
 and writing of AFM files, reading (and partially writing) of PS Type 1
 fonts. It also contains a tool called "TTX" which converts
 TrueType/OpenType fonts to and from an XML-based format.

fonttools-eexecop: python extension to speed up fonttools

 This is an optional C implementation of part of fonttools that speeds
 up the eexec and charstring encryption algorithms as used by PostScript
 Type 1 fonts. fonttools is much faster with it, it is quite small but
 most people will be using fonttools with TrueType or OpenType fonts
 so fonttools recommends it instead of depending on it.
