Generate ASCII banners from user input. See also: showfigfonts. More information:

  • Generate by directly inputting text:

figlet {{input_text}}

  • Use a custom [f]ont file:

figlet {{input_text}} -f {{path/to/font_file.flf}}

  • Use a [f]ont from the default font directory (the extension can be omitted):

figlet {{input_text}} -f {{font_filename}}

  • Pipe command output through FIGlet:

{{command}} | figlet

  • Show available FIGlet fonts:

showfigfonts {{optional_string_to_display}}

  • Use the full width of the [t]erminal and [c]enter the input text:

figlet -t -c {{input_text}}

  • Display all characters at full [W]idth to avoid overlapping:

figlet -W {{input_text}}
