PyHiero is a library that helps use the Hiero Bitmap Font generator (http://slick.cokeandcode.com/demos/hiero.jnlp) with the Pygame font engine. Simply generate your bitmap font file, load it into PyHiero and draw the Hiero fonts like you would draw a regular Pygame font!
PyHiero supports loading of Hiero fonts into Pygame-font-like objects that can be used for rendering just like you are used to. It supports
- Alpha blending
- Colors and backgrounds
- Characters with differing sizes with nice kerning
- Compactly organized bitmap sheets, split into multiple files, if desired
PyHiero is licensed under the MIT license, so feel free to use it in all your projects!
