which fonts compatible with variations?
Hello, I'm quite new to Drawbot (had some previous experience with python). I wanted to animate some fonts and I read that they has to be compatible with variation axes. I printed the list of all the fonts compatibile on my laptop and "Skia" was the only one. I wanted to ask you where can I find more fonts compatible with this method that I could install on my system. (I'm currently using Mac Os 10.11)

I searched Wikipedia for the Skia typeface and found out we are dealing with GX Variations. This article on AxisPraxis (very good resource for variable fonts btw) sheds some light on the technology: https://www.axis-praxis.org/blog/2016-11-14/6/article-gx-variations-a-typographic-revival
I suppose you can find more by googling the term or check this: http://www.gxfanclub.com/gxfonts.html
Otherwise, we are just talking about Variable fonts and you can find many open-source on AxisPraxis or somewhere else on the web.
