[New Tool] Bitmap fonts done right! - Glyphite

Monkey Archive Forums/Digital Discussion/[New Tool] Bitmap fonts done right! - Glyphite

Hi fellow devs! I'd like to share with you an app I've been working on for the past couple months.


I present...Glyphite! A fast, clean, and affordable Bitmap font builder. Glyphite runs entirely in your browser so you never have to download an app. Choose from a (soon-to-be) massive selection of Photoshop-quality presets and tweak shadows, strokes, and fills to your heart's desire. When you're done, you can export in the standard BMFont format with more formats coming soon.

Glyphite caters to every member of your team, from designers to developers to marketers. We've streamlined the experience so that creating stunning text effects is as easy as clicking a button or tweaking settings in Photoshop.

It's now ready to be taken for a spin...by you! We've launched in beta right now, but all of the core font-producing functionality is present. The app performs best in Chrome and Safari, but full support for Firefox is next in the pipeline.

Take a look (free to try!) and let us know what you think. We're building this tool for you and we would love to know how you use it and what you'd like to see in the future.

Very nice, I like the Google integration with their webfonts. It's a little laggy on my work computer (Core i3, 4GB, Chrome) Was it built in Monkey? Interface is nice too.

Hey Supertino,

Glad you like it. :)

We have noticed a lag issue with Google's fonts. We have a list of fixes that we're gonna tackle in the next week and that one is near the top. It should be fixed very soon!
