Adobe Edge Fonts Preview

One-pager to preview Adobe Edge Fonts. A work in progress. Much documentation of the code is also needed.


This project is an experiment built using Yeoman. Other frameworks used include:

API Endpoint

Since Adobe has no way for users to access the fonts other than the EdgeFonts homepage, I created a simple API endpoint to make it easy for anyone to pull the whole list of fonts in JSON format and play:

JSONifying the fonts from

In case you don't want to use the API, the following code block is the small set of commands I run in the WebKit inspector to scrape all of the fonts from the Edge Fonts website into something usable:

var tables = $$('table'),
    fonts = [],
    length = tables.length;

for(var i=0; i<length; i++){
    var table = tables.item(i),
        name = table.querySelector('th').innerText,
        slug = table.querySelector('code').innerText,
        weightRows = table.querySelectorAll('tbody tr'),
        variations = [];

    for(var k=0, lr=weightRows.length; k<lr; k++){
        variations.push( weightRows.item(k).querySelector('code').innerText );
