, developing libraries
and programming online font creators
is actually hard work. I order most of my electronics from a Chinese website called Banggood
. It is save and the items usually arrive in good quality. With every order you do there by following this link

Many people were asking me to publish the code that creates the font files used in the SSD1306 OLED library. Well, I was hesitating since the code was a bit hacky. So I sat down and created an online tool which is now open for Beta testing. It allows you to select a font from a list of integrated Apache licensed files, choose font size and style (plain, italic, bold) and then create the C file which you can copy paste into your Arduino IDE. Almost forgot, there is also a preview of how the font will look on the display…
It might not be perfect yet and I’m looking forward to get your feedback…
And here is the tool: http://oleddisplay.squix.ch/

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!
