def setup():
    font_size = 45
    font = py5.create_font('DejaVu Sans', font_size)
    py5.text_font(font)

    baseline = py5.height / 2
    ascent = baseline - font.ascent() * font_size
    descent = baseline + font.descent() * font_size

    py5.text("py5", 10, baseline)
    py5.line(0, ascent, py5.width, ascent)
    py5.line(0, baseline, py5.width, baseline)
    py5.line(0, descent, py5.width, descent)
