Usage

Documentation

Command line interface:

usage: cfonts [-h] [-V]
              [-f {console,block,simpleBlock,simple,3d,simple3d,chrome,huge,grid,pallet,shade,slick}]
              [-c COLORS] [-b BACKGROUND] [-a {left,center,right}]
              [-l LETTER_SPACING] [-z LINE_HEIGHT] [-s] [-m MAX_LENGTH]
              [-g GRADIENT] [-i] [-t]
              text

positional arguments:
  text

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -V, --version         show program's version number and exit
  -f {console,block,simpleBlock,simple,3d,simple3d,chrome,huge,grid,pallet,shade,slick}, --font {console,block,simpleBlock,simple,3d,simple3d,chrome,huge,grid,pallet,shade,slick}
                        Use to define the font face
  -c COLORS, --colors COLORS
                        Use to define the font color
  -b BACKGROUND, --background BACKGROUND
                        Use to define the background color
  -a {left,center,right}, --align {left,center,right}
                        Use to align the text output
  -l LETTER_SPACING, --letter-spacing LETTER_SPACING
                        Use to define the letter spacing
  -z LINE_HEIGHT, --line-height LINE_HEIGHT
                        Use to define the line height
  -s, --spaceless       Use to define the background color
  -m MAX_LENGTH, --max-length MAX_LENGTH
                        Use to define the amount of maximum characters per
                        line
  -g GRADIENT, --gradient GRADIENT
                        Define gradient colors(separated by comma)
  -i, --independent-gradient
                        Set this option to re-calculate the gradient colors
                        for each new line.Only works in combination with the
                        gradient option.
  -t, --transition-gradient
                        Set this option to generate your own gradients. Each
                        color set in the gradient option will then be
                        transitioned to directly.

Or generate the fonts pragramatically:

from cfonts import render, say

output = render('Hello world', colors=['red', 'yellow'], align='center')
print(output)
