HarfTeX is a TeX engine based on LuaTeX and aims to combine the flexibility of LuaTeX with comprehensive support world languages and writing systems more-or-less out of box (à la XeTeX). HarfTeX started as an attempt to integrate the HarfBuzz text layout library into LuaTeX as a Lua module and a Lua support package, allowing users to benefit from a mature, well supported and featureful text layout engine. However, the LuaTeX team preferred to avoid the extra dependencies and suggested building a separate engine instead.
