A-Frame Fonts πŸ“–

Fonts are important, by default A-Frame only ships with a few. Not anymore. In this repo you will find all the fonts from Google Fonts converted into a MSDF format supported by A-Frame. There are more than 2000 of them...πŸ˜‚

Demo

πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ Live demo 😎 πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Getting Started

To use those fonts simply create a text entity with the attribute font and shader: msdf; (very important).

<a-entity text="value:Hello; color:#FFFFFF; shader: msdf; font:https://raw.githubusercontent.com/etiennepinchon/aframe-fonts/master/fonts/creepster/Creepster-Regular.json;" position="6.7 1 -2"></a-entity>     

All the fonts can be served using this template:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/etiennepinchon/aframe-fonts/master/fonts/[FONT_NAME]/[FONT_TYPE].json

Note that if you wish to download the font files, make sure you have both the .json and .png. A-Frame will automatically import the .png file.

Installation

First make sure you have Node installed.

On Mac OS X, it's recommended to use Homebrew to install Node + npm:

brew install node

This project uses msdf-bmfont, and some of its dependencies must be installed in advance. For system-specific installation view the node-canvas wiki. You can quickly install the dependencies by using the command for your OS:

OS Command
OS X brew install pkg-config cairo libpng jpeg giflib
Ubuntu sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev libjpeg8-dev libpango1.0-dev libgif-dev build-essential g++
Fedora sudo yum install cairo cairo-devel cairomm-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel pango pango-devel pangomm pangomm-devel giflib-devel
Solaris pkgin install cairo pkg-config xproto renderproto kbproto xextproto
Windows Instructions on the node-canvas wiki

If this doesn't work, refer to the msdf-bmfont installation instructions.

To install the Node dependencies:

npm install
