how to use your favorite fonts

You can use tools/mkfont_bdf to create "glyph.h".

usage: tools/mkfont_bdf ALIAS_FILE BDF1 BDF2 BDF3 ... > glyph.h

  • ALIAS_FILE: glyph substitution rule file (see table/alias)
  • BDF1, BDF2, BDF3...: bdf files
    • yaft supports only "monospace" bdf font
    • you can specify mulitiple bdf fonts (but these fonts MUST be the same size)
      • If there is more than one glyph of the same codepoint, the glyph included in the FIRST bdf file is choosed
$ ./mkfont_bdf table/your_alias your/favorite/fonts.bdf > glyph.h

build and install

$ export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 # yaft uses libc's wcwidth for calculating glyph width
$ make
# make install
or
$ make yaftx
# make installx
