gulp-google-webfonts

A gulp plugin to download Google webfonts and generate a stylesheet for them.

Note: The examples seem to have issues with Gulp v4.

Example #1

Input

fonts.list

# Tab-delimeted format
Oswald	400,700	latin,latin-ext

# Google format
Roboto:500,500italic&subset=greek

gulpfile.js

var gulp = require('gulp');
var googleWebFonts = require('../');

var options = { };

gulp.task('fonts', function () {
	return gulp.src('./fonts.list')
		.pipe(googleWebFonts(options))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('out/fonts'))
		;
	});

gulp.task('default', ['fonts']);

Output

gulp fonts

out/fonts/

fonts.css
Oswald-normal-400.woff
Oswald-normal-700.woff
Roboto-italic-500.woff
Roboto-normal-500.woff

out/fonts/fonts.css

@font-face {
	font-family: 'Oswald';
	font-style: normal;
	font-weight: 400;
	src: url(Oswald-normal-400.woff) format('woff');
	unicode-range: U+0-10FFFF;
}

@font-face {
	font-family: 'Oswald';
	font-style: normal;
	font-weight: 700;
	src: url(Oswald-normal-700.woff) format('woff');
	unicode-range: U+0-10FFFF;
}

@font-face {
	font-family: 'Roboto';
	font-style: italic;
	font-weight: 500;
	src: url(Roboto-italic-500.woff) format('woff');
	unicode-range: U+0-10FFFF;
}

@font-face {
	font-family: 'Roboto';
	font-style: normal;
	font-weight: 500;
	src: url(Roboto-normal-500.woff) format('woff');
	unicode-range: U+0-10FFFF;
}

Options

The googleWebFonts object can take the following options:

  • fontsDir - The path the output fonts should be under. (Note: the path is relative to gulp.dest)
  • cssDir - The path the output css should be under. (Note: the path is relative to gulp.dest)
  • cssFilename - The filename of the output css file.

Example #2

var gulp = require('gulp');
var googleWebFonts = require('../');

var options = {
	fontsDir: 'googlefonts/',

};

gulp.task('fonts', function () {
	return gulp.src('./fonts.list')
		.pipe(googleWebFonts(options))
		.pipe(gulp.dest('out/fonts'))
		;
	});

gulp.task('default', ['fonts']);
