  • $\begingroup$ since you are one of the oldest here, just clarify whether or not it is a module, whether or not it belongs to blender or is it python? $\endgroup$ – Blender Blackened Jul 17 at 16:29
  • $\begingroup$ docs.blender.org/api/2.79/#standalone-modules $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jul 17 at 16:35

blf is a python module for font drawing in Blender as explained in the documentation.

  • $\begingroup$ but i do not use blender 2.8, i use 2.79b $\endgroup$ – Blender Blackened Jul 17 at 16:16
  • $\begingroup$ and I was reading the documentation of the api because I was trying to transcribe the file init of blender that calls the libraries to generate the interface created by blender python $\endgroup$ – Blender Blackened Jul 17 at 16:18

    $\begingroup$ Yes and? The module still has the same purpose. The only real difference is that the 2.79 documentation uses an obsolete example for the Blender Game Engine. docs.blender.org/api/2.79/blf.html?highlight=blf#module-blf $\endgroup$ – rjg Jul 17 at 16:19

    $\begingroup$ @BlenderBlackened Blender provides the python module as an API to access Blender specific functionality for drawing text. $\endgroup$ – rjg Jul 17 at 16:39

    $\begingroup$ @BlenderBlackened if that doesn't answer your question, please try to rephrase what exactly you'd like to know. $\endgroup$ – rjg Jul 17 at 16:46
