SOLVED RGlyph.area method only works on glyphs with contours.

Is it possible to add the ability to make
RGlyph.areato work on glyphs which have components? Right now it only works on glyphs which have contours, but on glyphs with components it gives this error:

I agree it would be nice if it just worked with components too. not sure at which level to add it though:
in the meantime, you can get it to work using the DecomposePointPen:
from mojo.pens import DecomposePointPen g = CurrentGlyph() g2 = RGlyph() g.drawPoints(DecomposePointPen(g.font, g2.getPointPen())) print(g2.area)
no glyphset is provided in defcon see https://github.com/robotools/defcon/blob/master/Lib/defcon/tools/representations.py#L43
a fix will follow shortly

Thanks Gustavo, this is the solution I used too in the meanwhile.
Looking forward to get the update!
