glitch text generator/scripts—change log
last updated: May 31, 2015
v.1.1.2—May 31, 2015
The glitch text scripts now recognize and skip spaces (if you want them to)! This is turned on by default in the glitch text generator; uncheck the Spaces checkbox at the top of the page to turn it off.
This is done using a new optional
skipSpace attribute on the
Randomize scripts. Pass
true to these scripts to turn this on.
Added lots more animations.
Added a new animate panel with five categories of CSS animations that you can mix & match. The duration of each animation can be set independently.
mouseover scripts—July 2014
Implemented the glitch text mouseovers as a separate script file to make them more easy to use in websites.
Added a new pos panel with x and y sliders that allow you to move things around more easily on the screen.
Added a few more fonts to the font drop-down, to make it easier to play around with dingbats. New fonts are Webdings, Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3.
v1.0.3—March 15, 2014
Added a text box to the font panel, so now you can use virtually any font you have installed—just type the font name in the box and click Go!
Also added two new options to the scramble panel—Basic ASCII and Extended ASCII—for use with display fonts that don't have a lot of characters.
v1.0.2—Feb. 01, 2014
Added almost 20 new options to the scramble panel. Many of these new options require a font like Code2000—get Code2000 for free here.
v1.0.1—Dec. 01, 2013
Added several new options to the scramble panel: Braille, Galgolithic, Coptic, Tifinagh, Vai, Linear B, Cypriot, Phaistos Disc, More Symbols, Transport, Alchemical, Supplemental Punctuation.
Added Combining Diacritical Marks for Symbols to the precise panel. These only work in FreeSans, FreeSerif, and Symbola, so if you want to use them, you'll need to install those fonts (they're free!). You'll probably also want to use "FreeFonts mode" (see below).
Added a FreeFonts button that makes it easier to work with chars that are only visible in the Free* fonts or Symbola. Clicking this button:
- Changes the font of the "type something" boxes to Symbola, which is great for working with Pictographs and such.
- Changes the font of the "choose diacritic" drop-downs to FreeSans, so you can work with diacritics that aren't in the base fonts (like the newly-added Combining Diacritical Marks for Symbols).
There is of course also a Base fonts button for switching back out of FreeFonts mode.
