truetype2gfx – converting fonts from TrueType to the Adafruit GFX library for Arduino
truetype2gfx is as a web utility to convert fonts from TrueType to GFX, which is used the Adafruit GFX library for Arduino.
Many Arduino projects and ready-built devices come with a display. And the Adafruit GFX display driver is used by many of them to display variable-width fonts. Some fonts usually are included with the driver, and then there’s a complicated procedure for adding your own fonts. It involves compiling tools and a trial-and-error process for figuring out how big the font will turn out on your display.
But now you can skip all that and convert the fonts your Arduino project needs with ease. No need to compile tools, no more guessing how big a font will be. Simply select a FreeFont or upload any TrueType font, select a size, download the include file and you’re ready to use the font in your project.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
