Implementing OT features

Hi

I made this proposal over one month ago* and got a quick reply, explaining that the problem did not present itself in the same terms for Koreader than for, say, Calibre or Sigil. I was unaware of it.

So, I looked for more information, which took me some weeks (I'm slow) trying to see if this problem could be circumvented. I found a way that has been used by Prince PDF and that could be of interest and posted it.

https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/5821

As the initial post and its reply have been published a long time ago, I am not sure if my last post will ever be read. Hence this post here.


* There had been some similar proposals already some years ago.

@poire-z's answer is still canonical. We don't "need" anything new (and certainly not something like fontkit, that's pure JS, brrr.), that's what harfbuzz is made for.

It's just much, much easier said than done, as @poire-z explained.

Indeed, you can't be wrong, it is true for nearly everything.

One day, it will come, without anybody pestering for it.

It's somewhat impressive though. :P

(Albeit seemingly almost completely redundant… don't you have native Node modules and stuff?)
