How would one load a custom font to be used with PIXI.Text? [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

Working on a minimal gui layer for my project. Text displays fine currently, but I was wondering how to load a custom font for PIXI.Text / PIXI.TextStyle? I looked around and saw webfont loader (link) being recommended for this problem. This looks fine, and I'm willing to use it if it's too inconvenient otherwise, but I was wondering if there was an alternative (more manual) way of doing this? I was thinking of having the fonts stored on the website locally, or retrieve them before the game starts using google fonts.

The loader seems somewhat overkill for what I want and I've made it a minor challenge to use as much vanilla javaScript as possible for the project. Appreciate any input.

fontfaceobserver is the one.

PixiJS wise, either wait until the successful callback function from ffo has completed and then create text using the custom font, or do a force refresh of all the text using updateText function on the successful callback.

Basically, don't try to render text with a custom font before ffo has done its thing
