Install SiyamRupali font (bengali) for svg
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Install SiyamRupali font for svg file rendering. According to this, We have three font for bengali svg file rendering: Mitra Mono, Mukti Narrow, Lohit Bengali. "Mitra Mono" and "Mukti Narrow" doesn't render bengali conjunct properly, we never used those two. The only used font is Lohit bengali, but it doesn't much clear. doesn't looks good as siyam rupali.

Siyam Rupali is much clear, superior, beautiful font. fits in relatively small spaces. This is also most used and default font of Bengali (T35599) and Bishnupriya Manipuri (T39863) Wikipedia. It would be great if we add this font for bengali for svg rendering.

SiyamRupali released at http://www.omicronlab.com/bangla-fonts.html (https://github.com/potasiyam/Siyam-Rupali) license is GPL-3.0

I would also recommend Hind Siliguri and Noto Serif Bengali (both SIL OFL). I am unaware of any fonts that encode U+09FC and U+09FD yet.

I agree and give support. It needs to be started soon.

When it comes to SVG rendering via librsvg (different from webfonts), the question is: Is there a Debian package to install which provides SiyamRupali?

The answer is no. It's official release only comes as TTF.

@Aklapper Is there any other way to do this? If not, then close this task.

Per T184664 Noto fonts will soon be available for rendering SVG images. These necessarily include (not yet since those particular fonts aren’t available in Debian jessie) Noto Sans Bengali and Noto Serif Bengali. @Aftabuzzaman @MoheenReeyad @Tarunno what do you think of those two fonts?
