Font Converter

Left behind in the /font directory is fnt_to_json.py, which pretty much explains itself. And then it explains itself again in a comment.

Script to convert an .fnt (font) file exported from tools like
BMFont and Glyph Designer to a .json format which we can use
to render fonts at runtime
import sys
import os
import json
import re

class RawJson(unicode):

# patch json.encoder module to avoid escaping strings
# so that they are copied verbatim in the resuling json file
for name in ['encode_basestring', 'encode_basestring_ascii']:
	def encode(o, _encode=getattr(json.encoder, name)):
		return o if isinstance(o, RawJson) else _encode(o)
	setattr(json.encoder, name, encode)

regex = re.compile("([a-zA-Z0-9]+)=((\"[^\"]*\")|(\S+))")

def line_to_json(line):
	Convert a line from the .fnt file to json
	result = {}
	expressions = line.strip().split(' ')
	iterator = iter(expressions)
	for expression in iterator:
		if len(expression) == 0:

		props = regex.findall(line)
		for prop in props:
			value = prop[1]
			if ',' in value:
				value = '[%s]' % value
			elif value == '"""':
				value = '"\\""'
			elif value == '"\\"':
				value = '"\\\\"'
			result[prop[0]] = RawJson(value)
	return (expressions[0], result)
