What's a BMFont?

I’ve been searching for tools to convert from “woff to bmfont”, but results are limited. Is a “BMFont” just short for “bitmap font”, and thus I should use the term “bitmap font” instead? (I’m new to fonts, and want to try three-bmfont-text)

It’s just short for “bitmap font” yeah, there are MSDF and SDF variants. I’m not sure how to convert a WOFF to bmfont, but you can convert TTF files pretty conveniently here:

…which is just running msdf-bmfont-xml in a Docker container. Ideally you convert only the characters needed for your app, to keep size down. But with English characters using the whole alphabet isn’t so bad.
