The font manifest generator creates a
.font_manifest.json file for use by the font server.

Contains a human-written listing of font families, assets, and typefaces. See schema.
.font_catalog.json file exists for each CIPD font repo.
These files are expected to reside in the Fuchsia source tree.
Contains a listing of font asset names (e.g.
"Roboto-Bold.ttf", safe package name suffixes (e.g.
"roboto-bold-ttf"), and the relative path of the asset within the font directory.
.font_pkgs.json file exists for each CIPD font repo. It is generated by a recipe and checked out as a prebuilt, along with font files.
Contains a listing of all font asset names and those that are local.
all_fonts must be a superset of
all_fonts are made available as ephemeral packages, while
local_fonts are additionally bundled into the font server's

Contains a human-written set of product-specific font settings. See schema.
Currently, the main purpose of this file is to define a specific fallback chain, i.e. a preferred sequence of typefaces to use when an exact match for the client's typeface request is not available.

--verbose). You can do this by temporarily changing the arguments in font_manifest.gni.

The manifest generator must read the font files to collect the set of code points for each typeface.
