README.md

Digit's Big Tiny Font Collection

a big (growing) collection of (mostly) tiny fonts.

to scale or not to scale, that is the precision.

most are bitmap fonts for xwindows, not designed for scaling, but for pixel perfection.

some are now also better suited to scaling.

missing characters

most are just a basic set of characters. some have more characters filled out. if you like a font, but it is lacking some special characters you use, you are welcome to request Digit (via contact means at bottom of this readme) continue to make such characters. only on some of the very smallest fonts would this not be possible.

alternatively, you can of course try make them yourself. fire up fontforge, open the relevant .sfd file, and see what you can do. do it well, n consider sharing your modifications/additions.

plan

i'll:

  • clean up the broken
  • remove the flotsam ✓
  • remove stuff i didnt make ✓ (i think ~ will continually recheck that)
  • update/improve the fonts
  • rearrange them better
  • make & add example images
  • etc. (?) and maybe even
  • fonts in own repos
  • plan out of README.md
  • make scripts to help automate creation of preview images (inc 3 line example that shows vert spacing)
  • etc. (?)
