Description Guillaume Ayoub 2021-08-07 23:30:30 UTC
The WeasyPrint Python package relies on the woff options provided by fonttools (see That’s not the case of dev-python/weasyprint-53.0, that depends only on dev-python/fonttools without explicit woff support.

dev-python/fonttools actually has a "test" use flag installing the dependencies required for woff support. I don’t know if it’s possible to add a "woff" use flag to dev-python/fonttools with the same dependencies as "test", and make dev-python/weasyprint require this use flag.

This fix is not urgent at all. WeasyPrint should work fine without fontools’ woff support, even if it’s not officially tested and supported.

Reproducible: Always
