This module adds a font picker under the admin settings, under a Theme Options tab. It comes with 3 fonts out of the box, provided by Google Fonts, but more fonts can be added.


Adding extra fonts

To add extra fonts, simply set the theme_fonts field under SiteConfig as follows:

    metropolis: Metropolis
    nunito-sans: Nunito Sans
    fira-sans: Fira Sans
    merriweather: Merriweather

Note that any font which is unavailable at Google Fonts will not be displayed in preview in the font selector.

Changing the default font

To set the default font, simply set the default_font field under SiteConfig as follows:

  default_font: metropolis

Using in your own theme

First, ensure that there is a HTML class present in your template which indicates the theme variation to the CSS. Below is the default implementation which you'll also find in the Bambusa and Watea theme.

<body class="$ClassName <% if $SiteConfig.MainFontFamily %>theme-font-{$SiteConfig.MainFontFamily}<% end_if %>">

You can now either manually generated the colour variations in your CSS (class name suffixes), or you can trawl through the src/scss folder in either the Bambusa or Watea theme to find out how to use @mixin in SCSS to achieve that automatically.
