Python Interface for UNSCII bitmapped fonts

Project description

UNSCII for Python

This provides a wrapper around the collection of bitmapped fonts known as UNSCII.

The original motivation was to create a lightweight way to get text on to small displays such as OLEDs and LCD Screens that may be attached to devices such as a Raspberry Pi or Arduino. There are other libraries out there that do this, but most push the work to Pillow by providing it with .ttf fonts. I wanted a more lightweight way to quickly get text on to the screens without using so many resources, particularly on an Arduino.

Future versions will have a command line utility to generate the minimum amount of code to get strings for python and C++ to make this more useful with C++ and CircuitPython embedded stacks.
