Do you intend to make this available for Windows OS as well?

Also..will it have the ability to set letter spacing?

I'm trying Windows build slowly but not succeeded yet.
In Ptread Text, letter spacing can be set by a span tag as below.
Code:
<span letter_spacing='1000'>expanded text</span><span letter_spacing='-1000'>narrow text</span>

Does this plugin support reading text from files?
Yes, this plugin has both options; read from a text file and set i’m from the property.

The text will appear in 33ms + rendering time after the text file is updated. This is much faster than the OBS’s bundled text-freetype2, which takes 1s-2s.
However, chat log mode is not implemented.

Alright and do you have a Discord or anywhere where you will post updates on the Windows release?

Unfortunately I have not yet succeeded to build it for Windows. I started to write a build script for Windows from last year but there are a lot of difficulties to build necessary libraries. Since I don’t have Windows machine, it’s very time consuming to debug the build script for me.
I recommend to use browser source or GDI+ text for Windows user.

The difficulty for Windows is building a library "pango", which is the font rendering library used by this plugin. Help is welcome. What I tried (and failed) were available on github open PR list.

I'm attempting to install this plugin into my iMac. When I double-click the .dmg it opens the package and I see the obs-text-pthread folder and the target plugins shortcut. The problem I'm having (I'm new to OBS and been learning it on Linux, but jumping to Mac now) is the plugins shortcut goes now where.
So, where in my Mac file system should the plugins shortcut point to? Or where in the Mac filesystem should I put the obs-text-pthread contents?
I was able to follow a video that said to right-click on the OBS app icon in the applications folder and select Show Package Contents but after scrounging around in there, and attempting to copy the obs-txt-pthread folder into several locations - restarting OBS each time - nothing.
What am I missing? Surely there is a better location for putting OBS plugins on a Mac?

Hi @craigkendall, I'm sorry for your inconvenience. The plugins should point to this location.
/Library/Application Support/obs-studio/plugins

If this is the first plugin to install to that location, you need to create the directory manually.
If you are using CUI, open terminal and enter command below
sudo mkdir -p /Library/Application Support/obs-studio/plugins

I need to modify the package somehow but I didn't identify how to do that.
