Print with your own font using Python?

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this, we are going to see how differently we can display our text in a very unique way using python.

So let suppose I want to display “Hello, Python” and out many ways I could display my text/string (“Hello, Python”) like:

Input

“Hello, Python”

Output 1

___ ___ .__ .__
/ | \ ____ | | | | ____
/ ~ \_/ __ \| | | | / _ \
\ Y /\ ___/| |_| |_( <_> )
\___|_ / \___ >____/____/\____/ /\
\/ \/ )/
__________ __ .__
\______ \___.__._/ |_| |__ ____ ____
| ___< | |\ __\ | \ / _ \ / \
| | \___ | | | | Y ( <_> ) | \
|____| / ____| |__| |___| /\____/|___| /
\/ \/ \/

Output 2

_ _ _____ _ _ ___ ______ _______ _ _ ___ _ _
| | | | ____| | | | / _ \ | _ \ \ / /_ _| | | |/ _ \| \ | |
| |_| | _| | | | | | | | | | |_) \ V / | | | |_| | | | | \| |
| _ | |___| |___| |__| |_| | | __/ | | | | | _ | |_| | |\ |
|_| |_|_____|_____|_____\___( ) |_| |_| |_| |_| |_|\___/|_| \_|

Above is just the tip of the ice-pack, you can use many others font style to display your text.

I am going to use python pyfiglet module which will convert my regular strings in to ASCII art fonts. To install pyfiglet,simply run:

$pip install pyfiglet

In your terminal window, that it.

Example# 1

>>> import pyfiglet
>>> ascii_banner = pyfiglet.figlet_format("HELLO, PYTHON")
>>> print(ascii_banner)
_ _ _____ _ _ ___ ______ _______ _ _ ___ _ _
| | | | ____| | | | / _ \ | _ \ \ / /_ _| | | |/ _ \| \ | |
| |_| | _| | | | | | | | | | |_) \ V / | | | |_| | | | | \| |
| _ | |___| |___| |__| |_| | | __/ | | | | | _ | |_| | |\ |
|_| |_|_____|_____|_____\___( ) |_| |_| |_| |_| |_|\___/|_| \_|
|/

Example#2

>>> from pyfiglet import Figlet
>>> custom_fig = Figlet(font='graffiti')
>>> print(custom_fig.renderText('HELLO, PYTHON'))
___ ______________.____ .____ ________
/ | \_ _____/| | | | \_____ \
/ ~ \ __)_ | | | | / | \
\ Y / \| |___| |___/ | \
\___|_ /_______ /|_______ \_______ \_______ / /\
\/ \/ \/ \/ \/ )/
_______________.___.______________ ___ ________ _______
\______ \__ | |\__ ___/ | \\_____ \ \ \
| ___// | | | | / ~ \/ | \ / | \
| | \____ | | | \ Y / | \/ | \
|____| / ______| |____| \___|_ /\_______ /\____|__ /
\/ \/ \/ \/

Example#3

>>> from pyfiglet import Figlet
>>> custom_fig = Figlet(font='bubble')
>>> print(custom_fig.renderText('Hello, Python'))
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
/ \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \
( H | e | l | l | o | , ) ( P | y | t | h | o | n )
\_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/

Example#4

>>> custom_fig = Figlet(font='speed')
>>> print(custom_fig.renderText('Hello, Python'))

______ __ ___________
___ / / /_______ /__ /_____
__ /_/ /_ _ \_ /__ /_ __ \
_ __ / / __/ / _ / / /_/ /__
/_/ /_/ \___//_/ /_/ \____/_( )
_|/
________ ___________
___ __ \____ ___ /___ /______________
__ /_/ /_ / / / __/_ __ \ __ \_ __ \
_ ____/_ /_/ // /_ _ / / / /_/ / / / /
/_/ _\__, / \__/ /_/ /_/\____//_/ /_/
/____/

So my guess is you’re quite comfortable in finding a font you like and generate an ASCII art banner using pyfiglet to enhance your application.
