Harbs commented on issue #338: Question: How TLF measures text?
URL: https://github.com/apache/royale-asjs/issues/338#issuecomment-437318481
 
 
   TLF itself is ported, but there's quite a few caveats.
   
   TLF required FTE to work properly. The text engine was propriety code. For TLF to actually
do anything you need a JS text engine. This needs to be done in either DOM elements, SVG or
Canvas.
   
   The TLF interactions with the text engine were all changed to interfaces, so you can swap
out different text engines as needed.
   
   Currently, Royale only has a relatively simple text engine which Alex implemented as DOM
elements.
   
   I'm using a custom text engine we developed internally. There is a possibility that we
might license our text engine at some point in the future, but we have a significant amount
of work to do to make that happen. You can contact me privately for more details.
