A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Herein lies a collection of fonts I've modified for PICO-8 programming. For details on these fonts and hints on how to use them in editors, see the Github site:

https://github.com/juanitogan/p8-programming-fonts

Thus far, only one TrueType font (DejaVu) and a few Windows FON bitmap fonts are available here. I could convert the bitmap fonts to Unix/Linux types but I am not set up for testing those conversions so I'll wait for others to do that work, if anyone chooses to, and include them via pull request. But is that really needed anymore considering FreeType now supports FON as well?

Awesome stuff

Would be great to get an all in one package option as well :D So we don't have to download one at a time.

Thank you!  A fine idea, I'm sure.  The collection just grew somewhat unpredictably from one to many the more I got distracted by the challenge of editing various fonts.  Thus, packaging them is something I never cared to go back and do after the challenge wore off.  Maybe if they got more interest.  The collection makes a bit more sense on the GitHub page where it's maybe easier to find the ones you want.  As far as I can tell so far, most people download only one or two.

Or... follow the GitHub link above and download a zip of the repo.  UPDATE: Added a download button to the top of the list that links to the repo's master.zip (non-PICO-8 Tektite not included).
