gfx_text Build Status crates.io

Library for drawing text for gfx-rs graphics API. Uses freetype-rs underneath.

Usage

Basic usage:

// Initialize text renderer.
let mut text = gfx_text::new(factory).build().unwrap();

// In render loop:

// Add some text 10 pixels down and right from the top left screen corner.
text.add(
    "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog",  // Text to add
    [10, 10],                                       // Position
    [0.65, 0.16, 0.16, 1.0],                        // Text color
);

// Draw text.
text.draw(&mut stream);

See API documentation for overview of all available methods.

You can skip default font by disabling include-font feature:

[dependencies.gfx_text]
version = "*"
default-features = false

Examples

See this example on how to draw text in various styles: different sizes, colors, fonts, etc.
