I figured it out. Took me all day but got the alignment pretty decent for that. What I did was convert a font to SVG, manually copy-paste out the glyphs into JavaScript. Import each one individually into Illustrator, export with alignment in right place (and Illustrator export produces completely different SVG paths than what you provide somehow). Take the ...

The pipeline can be customized to what you need. I don't think there is an optimal set vertex attributes without a clear idea of what you need. My suggestion is to start simple and add as you need. It is much easier to start with a simple system that works and evolve it, than it is to start with a complex system that works. For starters, you will likely ...

This is just a speculation. I don't know how these algorithms work. But I can imagine a possible implementation based on the video and other examples of how this effect works. Take note that this kind of algorithm is just an approximation, or a fake that looks kind of believable. If you wanted a photo-realistic approach, the approach with 3D model, texture ...

Letters in arabic can use different glyphs as you saw (to make it possible to connect cleanly with other letters), and glyphs don't have a fixed shape - certain glyphs can and will be stretched for alignment purposes. Which makes it pointless to say "I draw a glyph", exactly because it doesn't have a fixed shape. The most promising approach you can take is ...
