Fontselect jQuery Plugin

A font selector to choose from fonts available as part of the Google Web Fonts api.

Let users easily select and preview a font from Google's large range of free fonts.

Documentation

To create a font selector simply run the plugin on a standard html input element.

How to use

    $('input.fonts').fontselect();

Options

Fontselect has one argument, an options object that you might want to customise:

  • style: the class to give the new font selector

  • placeholder: text to use when no font is selected yet

  • lookahead: a number of fonts to try and preload ahead in the select box

      $('input.fonts').fontselect({
        style: 'font-select',
        placeholder: 'Select a font',
        lookahead: 2
      });
    

Events

Fontselect triggers the change event on the original element when a font is selected. An example is included to show how this could be used to update the font on the current page.

    $('input.fonts').fontselect().change(function(){
    
      // replace + signs with spaces for css
      var font = $(this).val().replace(/\+/g, ' ');
      
      // log font name
      console.log(font);
    });
