This plugin lazIdeBanner allows to insert BIG Text banners in the source editor like this

Code: [Select]
_                                   
| |                                 
| |     __ _ ______ _ _ __ _   _ ___
| |    / _` |_  / _` | '__| | | / __|
| |___| (_| |/ / (_| | |  | |_| \__ \
|______\__,_/___\__,_|_|   \__,_|___/

                                     


It uses fonts from the www.figlet.org project.

How to install

1 clone https://github.com/DomingoGP/lazIdeBanner
2 open and install the package file:  lazidebanner.lpk

It adds a menu 'Insert banner...' in the source menu.

3 select the fonts directory from the downloaded pakage in the plugin and save settings.
4 scan fonts.


I hope maybe it will be useful to someone.

Regards.

Good work, but did you use _ready_ Figlet in Pascal, or did you write Figlet unit by yourself?

The figlet unit is a written by myself. 
Is not a full implementation of all the characteristics of figglet fonts, but works pretty well with the fonts that i tryed  :D
