Bigify Your Text

A silly simple tool for displaying things like web URLs for an audience to easily see very BIG.

Use it yourself at https://cogdog.github.io/bigify

Whatever is typed or pasted in the form field at the very bottom of the screen is bigified. This uses FitText for scaling with window size. It probably could be done with viewport sized typography.

Now you can use it via a browser bookmarklet tool that will Bigify the URL of the current site in a new window/tab. Get one now!

I just did this as something to do on a cross country flight. And I need it for an upcoming workshop. Many ways this could be improved. That falls on you to fork it, eh?

Updates

  • Nov 10, 2017 Added display of a link button below the displayed text if it is a URL

  • Nov 06, 2017 Created a Javascript bookmarklet tool to spawn a bigified display of the current URL in a new tab

  • Oct 02, 2017 Added capability to pre-load content via query string; the current content is saved as a link via small icon in bottom right. Just copy the URL to use as a preloaded Bigif- try https://cogdog.github.io/bigify?t=Now+you+can+preset+what+is+bigified!
