Custom Font Support in ZIM loadAssets() #Canvas #JavaScript #CreateJS #ZIMjs


ZIM 6.4.0 has launched with support for preloading custom fonts with zim.loadAssets().  This piggy backs on the excellent CreateJS library’s FontLoader class and lets you consolidate loading in ZIM with other assets like images, sound, JSON files, etc.

frame.loadAssets({font:name, src:url});
frame.on("complete", function() {
  new Label({text:"hello world", font:name}).center(stage);
