A simple and legible Persian/Arabic typeface suitable for web pages and applications


Vazirmatn is a Persian/Arabic font project that started in 2015 under the name of Vazir with the idea of a new simple and legible typeface suitable for web pages and applications. Thanks to DejaVu Sans font (v2.35) published in public domain there was a free software base to start the Vazir project. Although Vazir was completely different in typeface, still the original software was common. For Latin glyphs, Vazirmatn is combined with Roboto font by a build script, however there is also a version without Latin glyphs (Non-Latin).

The font can be built from sources using fontmake tool, but it is not packaged in Fedora yet. Therefore, we currently use ttf files from the source archive.
