Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including grunt-google-fonts with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

grunt-google-fonts lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

require("grunt/package.json"); // grunt is a peer dependency. // require("grunt-google-fonts/[??]")

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt >=0.4.5

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

yarn add -D grunt-google-fonts

or

npm install grunt-google-fonts --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-google-fonts');

The "googlefonts" task

Options

options.fontPath

Type: String Default value: ./

Specify directory to store fonts.

options.cssFile

Type: String Boolean Default value: false

Path to store the generated css file.

options.cssFileLegacy

Type: String Boolean Default value: false

Path to store the generated legacy (non woff2) css file.

options.httpPath

Type: String Boolean Default value: false

Override http path in css file. This helps if you are hosting fonts from the CDN domain (eg. value https://my-super-fast.cdn/fonts/ will set the font path as https://my-super-fast.cdn/fonts/open-sans-300.woff). On false this will fallback to fontPath.

options.formats

Type: Object Default value: { eot: false, ttf: false, woff: false, woff2: true, svg: false }

Set formats to download. Defaults to woff2 that covers all modern browsers. For more information about format support, see caniuse entries for EOT, TTF, WOFF, WOFF2 and SVG.

options.fonts

Type: Array Default value: []

Fonts to download. This is an array of objects with font specific config.

font.family

Type: String

Font name.

font.styles

Type: Array

Array of font styles. Eg. [300] or [300, 400, '400italic'].

font.subsets

Type: Array

Array of font subsets. Eg. ['latin', 'cyrillic']. This option is ommitted on woff2 fonts.

font.text

Type: String

Restrict font to specified letters to make it smaller.
