Android-Font-Library

This is a library that makes it easy for you to add custom fonts to your Android application. For a detailed description of why we made this library and how it works, please read this blogpost. For those that want a quickstart, read on below.

Gradle dependency

If you are using the Android Support Library, use this dependency to use font aware TextView's that extend from their AppCompat versions of the support library. The support library is not a transitive dependency, so you have to add it by yourself.

compile 'com.innovattic:fontlib-support:5.0.0'

Otherwise, use the following variant to use the font aware TextView's that extend from the native counterparts:

compile 'com.innovattic:fontlib-native:5.0.0'

Usage

To use the library, add it to your project as a gradle dependency, specify your font xml file, call TypefaceManager.init() (typically in your Application class' onCreate) and use any of the font aware TextViews.

A font xml file is placed in app/res/xml and can look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<familyset>
	<family>
		<nameset>
			<name>aspergit</name>
			<name>any-alias</name>
		</nameset>
		<fileset>
			<file>aspergit/Aspergit.ttf</file>
			<file>aspergit/Aspergit Bold.ttf</file>
			<file>aspergit/Aspergit Italic.ttf</file>
			<file>aspergit/Aspergit Bold Italic.ttf</file>
		</fileset>
	</family>
</familyset>

In your layout xml files, use any of the font aware TextViews and set its flFont attribute to your font's name, like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
	xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
	android:layout_width="match_parent"
	android:layout_height="match_parent"
	android:gravity="center_vertical"
	android:orientation="vertical">

	<com.innovattic.font.FontTextView
		android:layout_width="wrap_content"
		android:layout_height="wrap_content"
		android:text="I am a text view with the font aspergit"
		app:flFont="aspergit" />

	<com.innovattic.font.FontTextView
		style="@style/AspergitStyle"
		android:layout_width="wrap_content"
		android:layout_height="wrap_content"
		android:text="I am a bold-italic text view with the font aspergit"
		android:textStyle="bold|italic" />

	<com.innovattic.font.FontTextView
		android:layout_width="wrap_content"
		android:layout_height="wrap_content"
		android:textAppearance="@style/AspergitTextAppearance"
		android:text="I am a bold text view with the font aspergit" />
		
</LinearLayout>

Where the styles used in the last two FontTextView's are defined like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

	<style name="AspergitStyle">
		<item name="flFont">aspergit</item>
	</style>

	<style name="AspergitTextAppearance">
		<item name="flFont">aspergit</item>
		<item name="android:textStyle">bold</item>
	</style>

</resources>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
