Font workflow for Web & WebGL

CSS fonts

Use a font converter like transfonter:

  • Upload all fonts
  • Enter subset (usually latin, can also copy/paste your specific subset if needed, saves a lot of weight)
  • Woff/woff2
  • (Optionally) if the exported font has issues, try a different hinting param

WebGL fonts

Convert fonts to msdf format in a single texture and compress them


* OGL Text class relies on chars.char to be defined, which is actually not part of the BMFont spec, and is omitted in .bin format. It's easy to add it yourself tho: parsedFontBin.chars.forEach(char => char.char = String.fromCharCode(char.id))
