Getting started

Dependency

implementation 'com.github.takahirom.downloadable.calligraphy:downloadable-calligraphy:[Latest Version]'

Add Fonts

You can use Bundled Font or Downloadable Font.

Downloadable Font

You can add Downloadable Font using Android Studio.
https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/look-and-feel/downloadable-fonts.html#via-android-studio

Bundled Font

Add your custom fonts to res/font/. You can see the Font Resource document.
https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/resources/font-resource.html

Usage

<TextView android:fontFamily="@font/my_font"/>

Installation

Define your default font using CalligraphyConfig, in your Application class in the #onCreate() method.

@Override
public void onCreate() {
    super.onCreate();
    CalligraphyConfig.initDefault(new CalligraphyConfig.Builder()
                            .setDefaultFont(R.font.roboto_regular)
                            .build()
            );
    //....
}

Inject into Context

Wrap the Activity Context:

@Override
protected void attachBaseContext(Context newBase) {
    super.attachBaseContext(CalligraphyContextWrapper.wrap(newBase));
}

You're good to go!

Usage

Custom font per TextView

<TextView
    android:text="@string/hello_world"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:fontFamily="@font/roboto_bold"/>

FAQ

Font Resolution

The CalligraphyFactory looks for the font in a pretty specific order, for the most part it's very similar to how the Android framework resolves attributes.

  1. View xml - attr defined here will always take priority.
  2. Style xml - attr defined here is checked next.
  3. TextAppearance xml - attr is checked next, the only caveat to this is IF you have a font defined in the Style and a TextAttribute defined in the View the Style attribute is picked first!
  4. Theme - if defined this is used.
  5. Default - if defined in the CalligraphyConfig this is used of none of the above are found OR if one of the above returns an invalid font.

Exceptions / Pitfalls

To our knowledge (try: grep -r -e "void set[^(]*(Typeface " <android source dir>) there are two standard Android widgets that have multiple methods to set typefaces. They are:

  • android.support.v7.widget.SwitchCompat
  • android.widget.Switch

Both have a method called setSwitchTypeface that sets the typeface within the switch (e.g. on/off, yes/no). SetTypeface sets the typeface of the label. You will need to create your own subclass that overrides setTypeface and calls both super.setTypeface and super.setSwitchTypeface.
