Jianpu ASCII Font

A font to quickly jot down jianpu notation using ASCII characters.

Posted: Jan 7th, 2023

I wanted a way to quickly jot down some melodies using numerical notation, so I threw together a little font which renders ascii characters into jianpu-style notation.

It uses ' and , for overdots and underdots, and / for underlines.

The font can be downloaded here. Or you can read more about the font at its GitHub Repo.

Editable Example

Here’s a text area which has the jianpu font applied.
