bakefont3 is a python3 module for rasterising font glyphs into a RGBA texture atlas and exporting metrics and kerning information, and a C library for loading that information.

That looks alarmingly complicated!

It's not so bad. It's like a big spritesheet!

Look up "a" -> get its position in the spritesheet and what offset to draw it at

Look up "a", "b" -> find out that when you draw them one after each other you need to tweak it so that b moves left one pixel to look nice

I've done a full OpenGL example now that uses the data for basic layout and kerning and also does a fancy/ugly gradient (you can change the colours in real time)

(images are zoomed in!)





The OpenGL example is about 680 lines, that includes shaders, OpenGL stuff, using bakefont to load saved data

Yup, looks alarmingly complicated
I stuck with a monospaced font, lazy as I am.

For sure, making this was a bit of a detour from what I was originally working on!

But now that it's finished, I can download a font from fonts.google.com, plop it in, and get results straight away!

Kickass!
