Hello guys, I’m Daniel a graphic designer from Portugal ending my master degree! For my thesis im working with variable fonts.

Does anyone knows or have a sketch on how to implement variable fonts on p5.js? Im struggling to do it…

Hi @DaniT3K
I’ve no experience in P5.js, but if it was plain P5 I would go for the Geomerative lib.
But since it is java script, maybe this could help on the way.
It’s on Github here.

In Processing (Java), try Geomerative and Fontastic

For p5.js, check out:

You can directly manipulate the css font feature settings within the draw loop. No need for a canvas. = `'wght' ${wght}`;

Don’t forget to map your input to the variable font’s supported range if necessary:

const wght = Math.floor(map(someInputValue, 0, 1200, 100, 800));

Hope this helps.
