Robbie is a professional web developer, hobby game designer, and conlang builder who makes tools, apps, and games that cater to under-served niches.

Thanks for using my little tools and games! Your support here will go directly to maintaining, expanding, and creating projects!

Some of my favorite projects include: Lexiconga, a tool that lets you easily build and share constructed languages; RedFlag, a tool that lets you warn people about sensitive content before they visit a link you want to post; The GUTS+ System, a role-playing game system that aims to be easy to understand and highly extensible; and Little Library, a digital give-a-book, take-a-book library for e-books!

I am also working on Readlebee, a book-tracking social network aiming to be an alternative to GoodReads.

Check out my portfolio to see all of my past and present projects. Most of my work is also open source and spread among GitHub, GitLab, and, so check those out, too!

Lexiconga is a great, easy-to-use product. I really appreciate the hard work that you're doing. I have two questions for you: 1. I have a font that I developed years ago for my language, and it targets a Unicode private use area. Do you have any plans to allow association of a font and Unicode private use area characters with a lexicon? If so, then I would certainly appreciate that, as it would let me see my script alongside the English transliteration and IPA rendition. 2. Do you imagine that there's any possibility of using the site without ads at some point? I personally would be happy to pay a yearly subscription fee to go ad-free. Thanks again for your efforts! I hope other users are just as appreciative. 😊 

Wow! Thank you so much! I can't thank you enough! To answer your questions, 1. You actually can use custom fonts by manipulating the custom CSS option, and I made a post on the Lexiconga blog that gives step by step instructions on how to set it up: By combining this with the orthographic translations options, you should be able to paste in the Unicode characters that the font will render, and Lexiconga will display the result for you! 2. I had considered making a "premium" version, but decided against it to save some trouble and just make all features free. If it helps at all, the ads are all hand-picked and curated by me personally, so there are only ever ads for things I think Lexiconga users might be interested in, and the ads are all plain text and never track you. I would certainly consider adding a donation tier to hide ads for people who donate, but it would be a manual process, and it would only work for people who have accounts. Thanks again for your kind words and questions!
