This live sitelen sitelen sandbox web app is made possible by the great work done work before me.
Toki Pona is an artificial language invented in 2001 by Sonja Lang as an attempt to understand the meaning of life in 120 words. In my own search, I am convinced this language should not be used to translate large bodies of text or as an actual means of communication but as a personal tool for soul searching.
Sitelen Sitelen or Sitelen Suwi is a project created by Jonathan Gabel in 2012 who created a non-linear writing style for Toki Pona inspired by Mayan script. I try to keep the algorithm behind the sitelen sitelen renderer in the spirit of Jonathan's project and allow for the different ways of drawing the sitelen sitelen.
The sitelen sitelen renderer parses text based on the context-free grammar by Zach Tomaszewski in 2012. I am continuing to improve this grammar now that I find it to give wrong parses in more exotic sentences.
The vectorized glyphs are based on the excellent work by jan Same. To make my SVGs scalable I sadly had to get rid of the non-uniform stroke widths. Also I have slightly different ideas about how to use the containers so I took the liberty of slightly altering some glyphs.
