SigilUI

Various custom Android widgets.

Usage

SigilUI is available via Maven central. Import into your Gradle project using:

dependencies {
	compile "org.sigil:sigilui:0.1.1@aar"
	...
}

Custom Font Faces

Android's TextView and derivitives do not allow specifying a custom typeface from the layout XML. This project sub-classes the offending views to allow this.

Usage

Drop your custom fonts into assets/fonts

Add the sigil namespace:

<LinearLayout 
	xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
	xmlns:sigil="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"

Use one of the non-broken views:

<org.sigil.ui.widget.TextView
	android:text="@string/app_name"
	font="sourcesanspro.ttf" />

The font loader will assume your fonts are in assets/fonts. You do not need to specify fonts/ in the name. You may use sub-directories, however:

<org.sigil.ui.widget.TextView
	android:text="@string/app_name"
	font="adobe/sourcesanspro.ttf" />

Styles

You may use custom fonts in a custom style, too:

<style name="Button">
	<item name="font">sourcesanspro.ttf</item>
</style>

Notice that you do not need the XML namespace here.

Text Styling

You can also use the android:textStyle attributes, but you must provide fonts as Android cannot fake bold and italic for custom fonts. Using SigilUI, you can still use android:textStyle and the same sigil:font definition, so long as you provide buold, italic, and bolditalic versions of the fonts.

The font loader will automatically look for fontname-bold, fontname-italic, and fontname-bolditalic in assets/fonts:

assets/
  fonts/
    sourcesanspro.ttf
	sourcesanspro-bold.ttf
	sourcesanspro-italic.ttf
	sourcesanspro-bolditalic.ttf
