Better fonts for WeatherDuino_4PESP8266_WD_v5.1 ?
#1
Just wondering:

The 4 day forecast had beautiful fonts.
Is this also possible for the METEO display screen?

The sketch uses 48% memory so maybe there is room for this?

Would make the already fantastic WD even better...

Do you mean using the "beautiful fonts" for the weather data (numbers) on the main screen?

If yes, that wasn't done, not because of lack of RAM, but for other reasons. As you can see, all data which is need to be updated frequently isn't using those "beautiful fonts", only text sentences and other data which doesn't change frequently use those "beautiful fonts". Fonts are huge, and need to be constantly loaded and unloaded from the SRAM, that takes to many time and causes other problems.

That's clear, thanks for the explanation!
