Friendly fork of http://www.linux-games.com/sfont/ where I can test out patches before submission.
Example build instructions:
cc `sdl-config --cflags` `sdl-config --libs` -lSDL_image SFont.c SFontViewer.c -o SFontViewer
For TTF fonts, take a look at NFontC at http://code.bluedinosaurs.com/NFont.html (also supports SFont bitmaps BUT is not api compatible).
- Web fonts overview http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Open_Font_Format
- http://onlinefontconverter.com/ Font converter that can convert web fonts into TTF (which can then be converted into bitmaps)
- http://www.sector808.org/wiki/gp32:lazyreader has a collection of BMP fonts that are not compatible with SFont but they could be re-purposed to work with SFont.
