#!/usr/bin/env bash

if [ ! -d "${fonts_dir}" ]; then
    echo "mkdir -p $fonts_dir"
    mkdir -p "${fonts_dir}"
    echo "Found fonts dir $fonts_dir"

for type in Bold Light Medium Regular Retina; do
    if [ ! -e "${file_path}" ]; then
        echo "wget -O $file_path $file_url"
        wget -O "${file_path}" "${file_url}"
	echo "Found existing file $file_path"

echo "fc-cache -f"
fc-cache -f
