Siji is an iconic bitmap font based on the Stlarch font with additional glyphs.
It inherits additional glyphs from Sm4tik xbm icon pack, Lokaltog Symbols font, xbm-icon font, Uushi font, FontAwesome, and Tewi font with personal additions.
Siji is built on top of Stlarch, so your existing stlarch unicode values will just work.
Siji is a Work In Progress, so more glyphs will be added over the time.
What's the difference between Stlarch and Siji ?
- Siji comes with 215 new glyphs, selectively ported from other fonts and xbm icons with personal additions.
- Increased letter spacing.
- Properly centered glyphs.
