cloudier and stark Use printf instead of cat to show success message. (#13)
Ensures that color codes are displayed properly.


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.

Using Siji with other programs:

As long as the program allows to set a fallback font, Siji will work.

Examples of using Siji with some programs:


static const char font[] = "-wuncon-siji-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1" ","  /* For Iconic Glyphs */
                           "-*-tamsyn-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-1";                   /* For Normal Text */


dmenu -fn '-*-tamsyn-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-1','-wuncon-siji-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1'


lemonbar -p -f '-*-tamsyn-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-1' -f '-wuncon-siji-medium-r-normal--10-100-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1'


  • More Glyphs!

  • Improving glyph alignment.
  • Creating small and large version of siji.
