For the toki pona language there is a writing system where each word is replaced by a single logogram or hieroglyph. There is also a web-based converter which allows you to enter a text in toki pona and converts it into a single PNG rendering in said hieroglyphs.

However, I was wondering if there was a way to directly produce texts in hieroglyphs, either as a font, or as a set of individual image files (ie one per word/hieroglyph), which could be used to render texts on webpages etc.

  • "Ah, I have images for toki pona. It's name is linja pona ("good lines"). " Don't quite get the second part, but it's a link to a toki pona hierogplyphics font that one can use. -- maybe "you can download and use it here"? – Oliver Mason Jun 17 '19 at 8:33
