Tutorial: Adding glyphs

Let's find out what we have to do to add glyphs to GlyphWiki.

Correction and deletion of registered glyphs

To correct or delete existing glyphs, click the "edit" tab on a glyph page. In addition, to make clear the intents of your edit, we request that you fill in the "edit summary" when editing pre-existing glyphs.

Deletion on GlyphWiki is called "blanking", and as a general rule data is not really deleted (past revisions of a glyph can be seen using the "history" tab). To blank a glyph, register "0:0:0:0" as the glyph's data.

Create a brand-new glyph

If you can't find the glyph you're looking for even after searching, by all means register it as a new glyph.

Concerning the types of glyphs that can be registered

In principle, the aim of GlyphWiki is to register minchō-style kanji glyphs. Glyphs such as the following may be rejected.

  • Drawings and illustrations
  • Non-minchō designs such as kaishō, etc. (However, 古字系についてはあまり厳密には適用しません)
  • Anything thought to be a trademark
  • Non-kanji


Finally, the glyph generation engine (KAGE engine) that GlyphWiki utilizes specializes in the generation of minchō glyphs, be aware that there is the possibility that non-minchō glyphs that have displayed fine up to now may become undisplayable following engine updates.

Concerning the usage of Konjaku Mojikyo character codepoints

Concerning the character codepoints defined in the Konjaku Mojikyo fonts distributed by 文字鏡研究会, interpretation of the license has determined that they should not be used on GlyphWiki. Because of this, please give glyphs names based on other sources. In order to avoid misunderstandings, please do not register prefixes such as "mojikyo-" and "m-".

Things to take into consideration when naming glyphs

Fundamental rules

The characters permitted in a glyph name are lowercase Latin letters (a-z), numbers (0-9), and the hyphen (-). The glyph name must begin with at least one letter and cannot end with a hyphen. The glyph name must not be shorter than five (5) characters or exceed sixty (60) characters.

Glyph names are not first come first served. In the case that someone else has already used a glyph name, the data will be overwritten (the old overwritten data can also continue to be used).

Giving a glyph its name

All glyphs have names on GlyphWiki. あなたが新たにグリフを登録するためには名前を考える必要があります。グリフウィキで一番難しいのは、このグリフ名の検討かもしれません。無秩序な登録を防ぐため、グリフウィキでは名前を決めるための方針を以下いくつか用意しています。この方針に従っていないグリフは白紙化・名前の強制変更の対象となります。

  • Temporarily register it to sandbox for the time being
  • Make it a user-exclusive glyph
  • Register it as a variant of a pre-existing glyph
  • 既存グリフの偏化変形部品とする
  • Register it under its IDS representation
  • Name it based on an existing kanji collection

Temporarily register it to sandbox for the time being

Those who are not yet familiar with GlyphWiki or who cannot decide on a glyph name can temporarily register the glyph as sandbox. If the character's meaning (origin, source/reference, 親字) is included in the "edit summary", it is possible that someone will re-register the glyph with a proper name.

Even in the case that one wishes to register multiple glyphs, please overwrite sandbox one character at a time. All glyphs can be confirmed by viewing the history, and 将来的に新しいグリフ名に複製することができます。

Make it a user-exclusive glyph

The GlyphWiki project was set out to be freely usable by anyone, so all registered glyphs can also be changed by anyone, but there are cases where this is not desirable. In these cases, users with a GlyphWiki account can opt to create a glyph in their own personal name space, where only they can alter it. If a glyph name is prefixed with a registered user's account name followed by an underscore (accountname_), that glyph can only be edited by that user. For example, only the user kamichi can create and edit a glyph named kamichi_foobar. Naturally, to create such a glyph you have to be logged in.

Keep in mind that the data itself is still public, so whilst that particular glyph cannot be edited by anyone but its creator, it is possible to copy the data as-is and re-register it under another glyph name.


Register it as a variant of a pre-existing glyph

ベースとなるグリフに対して異体字番号をつける命名方法です。異体字番号は「(ベースグリフ名)-itaiji-###」および「(ベースグリフ名)-var-###」の2種類があります。両者の区別は「ISO/IEC 10646でユニフィケーション対象となっている差異」に相当する場合は「-var-###」を、それ以外は「-itaiji-###」としてください。ほとんどの異体字は「-var-###」になるはずです。



 ○ u4e00-var-001
 ○ u4e00-itaiji-001
 × u4e00-var-1
 × u4e00-itaiji001
 × u4e00-var-001-itaiji-001
 × u4e00-var-001-var-001
 × u4e00-itaiji-001-itaiji-001












Register it under its IDS representation

ベースとなる字が文字コードにない場合はIDSを用いた記述を行ってください(IDSについての参考 )。UCSコード(U+4E00→u4e00と表現します)を"-"記号で繋げてください。

Example: u2ffa-u98a8-u6625 (⿺風春)




For square characters (such as ㍻), please see the following section.

A support tool has been prepared for the purpose of writing IDS representations. "IDS editor" is located in the "toolbox".

Register it under a square character description

For square characters , prefix the glyph name with "kumimoji-" and follow it with an IDS description.

Example: kumimoji-u2ff1-u2ff0-u682a-u5f0f-u2ff0-u4f1a-u793e

Name it based on an existing kanji collection
