font robot

based on Jon Gold's article, Taking The Robots To Design School http://www.jon.gold/2016/05/robot-design-school/



this is some gulp scripts for gathering a big pile of fonts, plus a browser program for analyzing a big pile of fonts, plus another browser program for looking at data about a big pile of fonts

first run npm install, then:

  • download a big pile of fonts, like this one into ./in
  • run npm run import to gather up all the .ttf files in ./in/, copy them into ./fonts, delete everything else in ./in, and make a list called ./fonts.json
  • run npm start and visit localhost:8000 to analyze all the fonts on ./fonts.json. It'll download a file called analysis.json
  • run npm start and visit localhost:8000/ with an analysis.json in this folder to explore the analysis. click a font to see similar fonts.
