Re: [cairo] Color fonts


Can we commit this?  I don't think waiting another few years will result in a superior patchset. :)

Right.  In the future we would want to make it show glyphs in the input order, ie. not separate color vs non-color.  That's the order required by CSS for example.  In a show-text-glyphs call with CAIRO_TEXT_CLUSTER_FLAG_BACKWARD, it might be desirable to show back-to-front.

Hi again,

I just came up with another question: How are overlapping glyphs handled?

Let's say I have a red glyph and a blue glyph and I draw them in such a
way that they overlap. Let's say this additionally overlaps with a
non-colored glyph in the same position and I use a green source with 50%
alpha (cairo_set_source_rgba(cr, 0, 1, 0, 0.5)).

What's the visible result?

Here is what my implementation does: It renders the color glyphs, in order, followed by the non-color glyphs.

In practice, I don't think the case of mixed color and non-color glyphs in the same call will be all that common.
Most apps will explicitly set a color font just for the emoji and they won't render regular text with an emoji font,
with the result that runs of color glyphs and non-color glyphs will typically be in separate calls.
