typesheet is a tiny Python script for creating transparent PNG spritesheets from TrueType (.ttf) fonts.

I made it because I couldn't find an easy option online while developing a game.

I welcome contributions, but I don't plan to spend more than a few minutes a month maintaining this repo.

an example image. switch to dark mode if you can't see it.

How to use

1. Install

pip install pillow tcod numpy

2. Use

See the usage string:

$ ./make_tileset.py -h
$ python3 make_tileset.py -h
usage: make_tileset.py [-h] --height HEIGHT [--width WIDTH] [-o OUT] input_file

positional arguments:
  input_file         A truetype (.ttf) font file.

  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --height HEIGHT    Height of each glyph (bounding box) in pixels.
  --width WIDTH      Width of each glyph (bounding box) in pixels. (Optional)
  -o OUT, --out OUT  The output file. (Defaults to <input>.png)

Exact command used to generate the example image:
