Siji

Siji is an iconic bitmap font based on the Stlarch font with additional glyphs.

It inherits additional glyphs from Sm4tik xbm icon pack, Lokaltog Symbols font, xbm-icon font, Uushi font, FontAwesome, and Tewi font with personal additions.

Siji is built on top of Stlarch, so your existing stlarch unicode values will just work.

Siji is a Work In Progress, so more glyphs will be added over the time.

Siji

What's the difference between Stlarch and Siji ?

  • Siji comes with 215 new glyphs, selectively ported from other fonts and xbm icons with personal additions.
  • Increased letter spacing.
  • Properly centered glyphs.

Installation

Arch Linux

Others

Clone this repo and cd into the siji directory:

git clone https://github.com/stark/siji && cd siji

Then run the installer script with ./install.sh.

By default Siji will be installed in your $HOME/.fonts directory, it will be created if the directory is non-existent.

If you wish to install Siji in another directory then run the install.sh script with the -d flag and specify the font directory as an argument.

Example:

./install.sh -d ~/.fonts

How to get the glyph codes ?

Install xfd:

Arch Linux

sudo pacman -S xorg-xfd

Debian

sudo apt-get install x11-utils

Fedora

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-apps

After installing xfd run the view.sh script:

./view.sh

Using Siji with other programs:

As long as the program allows to set a fallback font, Siji will work.

Examples of using Siji with some programs:

Dwm

static const char font[] = "-wuncon-siji-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1" ","  /* For Iconic Glyphs */
                           "-*-tamsyn-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-1";                   /* For Normal Text */

Dmenu

dmenu -fn '-*-tamsyn-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-1','-wuncon-siji-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1'

Lemonbar

lemonbar -p -f '-*-tamsyn-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-1' -f '-wuncon-siji-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1'

TODO

  • More Glyphs!
  • Adding glyphs of different sizes.
  • Improving glyph alignment.
  • Creating small and large version of siji.
