linja pona

sitelen pona is a script for toki pona.

The hieroglyphs were created by Sonja Lang, the creator of toki pona. They appear in Toki Pona: The Language of Good.

I have created a font called linja pona, it means “simple line”. With linja pona, I wanted to create a standard font that was simple and that could be read easily at different sizes.

Version 4.2

This version uses OpenType features to dynamically compose compound glyphs, rather than relying on including precomposed glyphs in the font. As a result, it allows over 6,000 new compound glyphs (screenshot) to be used.
It also has better webfont support.
This version of the font was made by David A Roberts.

Usage

To use compound glyphs, put a hyphen or a plus sign between two words,
e.g.: toki-pona, linja+pona

To use cartouches, use square brackets and underscores before each glyph,
e.g.: ma [_kasi_alasa_nasin_awen_telo_aa] li suli

To use a long pi, put a hyphen or a plus sign after a pi.
The more hyphens or plus signs you input, the longer the pi will be. The maximum length is 3 hyphens or plus signs.
e.g.: toki pi+ma-pona, toki pi++ma pona, toki pi+++ma pona suli
