Build Status

Add to your project

Add this line to your dependencies in build.gradle

compile 'in.workarounds.typography:typography:0.0.8'

Using the views

There are two important attributes that define a font

  • font_name Ex: 'Roboto', 'Helvetica'
  • font_variant Ex: 'Bold', 'Condensed'

So if you want to add a TextView with the font 'Roboto-Condensed', you add the following to your layout file

<in.workarounds.typography.TextView
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:font_name="Roboto"
    app:font_variant="Condensed"
    android:textSize="16sp"
/>

You can utilize the following views to improve the typography in your app: in.workarounds.typography.

  • TextView
  • EditText
  • AutoCompleteTextView
  • Button
  • Checkbox
  • RadioButton
  • ToggleButton

Font Files

Place your fonts in assets/fonts/ folder and use the following naming convention

`<font_name>-<font_variant>.<ext>`

<ext> can be ttf or otf. Both font_name and font_variant attribute are case insensitive.

Note: If you want to use Roboto.ttf, do not use the font_variant attribute.

FontLoader

FontLoader is the class responsible for caching the Typefaces and setting the fonts to the Views.

Set the default font name and font variant in your Application class

FontLoader.setDefaultFont(fontName, fontVariant)

Enable detailed logs(errors are always logged)

FontLoader.setLoggingEnabled(true)
