Fontello - icon font scissors

Build Status

Website: fontello.com

This tool lets you combine icon webfonts for your own project. With fontello you can:

  1. shrink glyph collections, minimizing font size
  2. merge symbols from several fonts into a single file
  3. access large sets of professional-grade open source icons

Now it's trivial to make a custom icon webfont, exactly for your needs. First, select the icons you like. Then update glyph codes (optional), and download your webfont bundle. We generate everything you need, ready for publishing on your website!

Don't forget about donations :)

Compatibility

  1. Desktop is fully supported. IE6-7 requires alternate CSS.
  2. Mobiles - all modern systems work without problems. There are limits on very old androids and rare browsers. Also, Windows Mobile IE9 sucks, as IE usually does :) . See details.

Developers API

Fontello allows easy scripting, to implement different convenient features:

  1. Open site from command line, with your configuration, and import edited project
    • Makefile example. That's a live working code, used for development of fontello itself.
  2. Writing website plugins, to import/export icons via admin panel.

When more examples available, those will be added here.

API methods

  1. POST http://fontello.com/ creates a session with your config and return you session_id. You can use it later to open fontello with you configuration and to automatically download your font. Session is stored for 24h. POST params (form-encoded):
    • config - content of config.json for your font
    • url - if used, download button will link to your admin panel, where you can run importing script.
  2. http://fontello.com/[session_id] - opening fontello with your config preloaded. When you edit font, your config is automatically sent to server
  3. http://fontello.com/[session_id]/get - download your font.

Note. When you open site via API url, download button will have another text.

Embedded Fonts

Fontello comes with the following embedded set of icon fonts:

Please, note that these embedded fonts differ from the original files. We did some modifications to unify characteristics such as scale, ascent/descent and alignment.
