The next step is to add more features to the display library. One is to allow more fonts and sizes. The current version only has one font and two sizes. For this I wrote a little Java program which converts any given TrueType font into a bitmap font readable by the display library. In the example below you see the Stencil Std font. Looks pretty, isn’t?

Thanks again to @mikerankin for sending me his beautiful ESP-01 based “one-board” display! You can find the layout for his PCB here: https://github.com/mike-rankin/ESP8266_OLED_Display

A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going!
