donwload font icons from fontello.com

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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:

npm install grunt-fontello --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-fontello');

The "fontello" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named fontello to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  fontello: {
    dist: {
      options: {
          config  : 'config.json',
          fonts   : 'output/fonts',
          styles  : 'output/css',
          scss    : true,
          force   : true
      }
    }
  },
})

Options

options.config

Type: String Default value: "config.json"

Path to your config.json file. Generate custom font icons here.

options.zip

Type: String Default value: "."

Folder to extract the full archive.

options.fonts

Type: String Default value: "fonts"

Path to extract font files (*.eot, *.woff, *.svg, *.ttf).

options.styles

Type: String Default value: "css"

options.preprocessor

Type: String Default value: none

By default the outputted stylesheet will be .css. Changing this to less or scss will change the output to .less or .scss respectively.

An array of names of files which are excluded.

options.cssFontPath

Type: String Default value: undefined

An explicit path to where the fonts are relative to the .css/.scss file.
