Update this project:
This app converts Dwarf Fortress tilesets into TrueType Fonts. The current TTFs are made by with a closed source and slow (on the order of 30 minutes per font) AutoHotKey script for an $80 windows-only app. If the last sentence made you cringe a few times, this is the app for you. (No offense, Elvang.) Works with BMPs or PNGs, square or rectangle. Has a handful of settings to help with making one-bit fonts (which fbterm desperately needs). Usually takes less than 30 seconds. Requires Python, Python Imaging Library and Fontforge so it should be cross platform. Source is GPL and contains some goodies like the unicode mapping for a DF font and a homebrew bitmap-to-svg converter (optimized for pixel art). Though I think the vectorizer could be a lot better, it works fine at the single native resolution. download: [df2ttf.py](./df2ttf.py.txt) ##--help docs Usage: df2ttf.py [options] tileset.png/bmp Convert a Dwarf Fortress PNG/BMP tileset to a TrueType Font.
