README
This is the README for the cabin package, version 2019-10-21.

This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX support for
the Cabin and Cabin Condensed families of sans serif fonts, designed by 
Pablo Impallari.

Cabin is a humanist sans with four weights and true italics and small
capitals. According to the designer, Cabin was inspired by Edward
Johnston's and Eric Gill's typefaces, with a touch of modernism. Cabin
incorporates modern proportions, optical adjustments, and some elements
of the geometric sans. A compatible condensed family CabinCondensed is
also available.

To install this package on a TDS-compliant TeX system download the
file "tex-archive"/install/fonts/cabin.tds.zip, where the preferred
URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirror.ctan.org. Unzip the archive
at the root of an appropriate texmf tree, likely a personal or local
tree. If necessary, update the file-name database (e.g., texhash).
Update the font-map files by enabling the Map file cabin.map.

To use, add

\usepackage{cabin}

to the preamble of your document. This makes Cabin the default sans
family. To also set Cabin as the main text font, use

\usepackage[sfdefault]{cabin}

LuaLaTeX and xeLaTeX users who might prefer type1 fonts or who wish
to avoid fontspec may use the type1 option.

Other options include:

bold            
semibold        

regular         
medium          

These are now implemented by defining macros recognized by commands
defined in package mweights (without re-defining \bfdefault or
\mddefault).

condensed       

Defaults are regular and bold (uncondensed). 

Available shapes in all series include:

it              italic
sc              small caps
scit            italic small caps

Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to adjust
fontsizes to match a serifed font.

Slanted variants are not supported; the designed italic variants will
be automatically substituted. However, there are currently no italic
versions of the condensed variants and so artificially slanted versions
have been generated and treated as if they were italic. The only figure
style supported is tabular-lining. Font encodings supported are OT1, T1,
LY1 and TS1.

Macros \cabin and \cabincondensed select the Cabin and CabinCondensed
font family, respectively.

The original fonts are available at
https://github.com/impallari/Cabin/ and are licensed under
the SIL Open Font License, (version 1.1); the text may be
found in the doc directory. The type1 versions were created
using cfftot1. The support files were created using autoinst
and are licensed under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public
License. The maintainer of this package is Bob Tennent (rdt

cabin – A humanist Sans Serif font, with support

Cabin is a humanist sans with four weights and true italics and small capitals. According to the designer, Pablo Impallari, Cabin was inspired by Edward Johnston's and Eric Gill's typefaces, with a touch of modernism. Cabin incorporates modern proportions, optical adjustments, and some elements of the geometric sans.

cabin.sty supports use of the font under , pdf, XeLaTeX and Lua; it uses the mweights, to manage the user’s view of all those font weights.

An sfdefault option is provided to enable Cabin as the default text font. The fontaxes package is required for use with [pdf].
