README

Utility/helper for working with web fonts. With this module you can easily add local and google fonts via your yaml-configuration, and they'll automatically be added to site and editor.

Configuration example

By default the module expects your fonts to be inside of a fonts directory in the web root

SiteConfig:
  extensions:
    - WebfontsUtility_SiteConfigExtension
LeftAndMain:
  extensions:
   #only needed when needing this in the backend
    - WebfontsUtility_LeftAndMainExtension
WebfontsUtility:
  google_fonts:
    'Devonshire':
    'Bigelow+Rules':
    'Rambla':
      styles: '400,700,700italic'
  local_fonts:
    'Miso':
      directory: 'miso'
      styles: 'Regular,Bold'
      filetypes: 'eot,woff,woff2,ttf,svg'
      Regular:
        filepattern: 'miso-regular-webfont'
        style: 'font-style: normal;'
      Bold:
        filepattern: 'miso-bold-webfont'
        style: 'font-style: bold;'
    'Sansation':
      directory: 'sansation'
      styles: 'Light,Regular,Bold'
      filetypes: 'eot,woff,ttf,svg'
      Light:
        filepattern: 'sansation_light-webfont'
        style: 'font-style: normal;font-weight: 300;'
      Regular:
        filepattern: 'sansation_regular-webfont'
        style: 'font-style: normal;font-weight: 400;'
      Bold:
        filepattern: 'sansation_bold-webfont'
        style: 'font-style: normal;font-weight: 700;'

The requirements can be loaded inside of your init method like this:

WebfontsUtility::Requirements();

//Use this for debugging
//echo WebfontsUtility::google_font_collection_link();
//echo WebfontsUtility::debug();

Future ideas

At the current state fonts are added inline. This could be improved by making the module auto generate Scss/CSS/LESS files, that could in turn be included into a compiled stylesheet.
