I just made a new Python module and CLI tool called fancify-text for transforming text into fancy unicode representations:
$ fancify-bold "hello world" 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗼 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱 $ fancify-bolditalics "hello world" 𝙝𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙤 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙 $ fancify-upsidedown "hello world" plɹoʍ ollǝɥ
I’m hoping to use it in an automatic tool for turning blog posts into twitter threads that I’m working on.
I stole the code
I can’t say I wrote it - I basically stole it from @Secret-chest, and repackaged their code. They did all the hard work of finding the appropriate unicode characters was done by them.
I don’t know if they mind. There’s no license on the code so I’m treating it as public domain, but I contacted them to ask if they want control of the module. They’re welcome to it if they want.
I just made it into a class, wrote a lot of boilerplate code around it for different function names and CLI entrypoints. And now you can use it.
Try it out
On the command-line:
$ pip3 install fancify-text $ fancify-script "hello world" 𝒽𝑒𝓁𝓁𝓅 𝓍𝓅𝓈𝓁𝒹
Or in Python:
In : from fancify_text import blue In : print(blue("hello world")) 🇭 🇪 🇱 🇱 🇴 🇼 🇴 🇷 🇱 🇩
