  • Enhancing Your E-Commerce Site: Custom Fonts, Global Styles, and Layout Setup
    1 project | dev.to | 11 Jun 2024
    The simplest and cheapest way of getting fonts to your app is Google Fonts. We need to open Google fonts page and type in the search panel the font we need, or just scroll and choose the font we like the most. There are two options for getting fonts: get embed code (in that case we will get 2 links which we should import directly to our index.html file and fonts will be downloaded to the client each time the app is opened), and "download all" (all types of chosen fonts will be downloaded to our machine and we can use them). We will use the second option and download fonts, I like "Libre Franklin" and will use this font in my e-commerce store. Then we will create a new "assets" folder with a "fonts" folder and paste all my fonts into this folder.

    To find fonts we can simply search on the internet, there are a massive amount of services like fontspace, dafont or 1001fonts that are offering free and not free fonts. I suggest you use Google Fonts, that also offeres numerous variants of fonts and simple dashboard to help you find fonts you like.

  • Remnants of a Legendary Typeface Have Been Rescued from the River Thames
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 6 May 2024
    Thanks!, hadn’t come across Mebinac.

    I’m also a big fan of Igino Marini’s recreation of the Fell typefaces:

    The Fell Types took their name from John Fell, a Bishop of Oxford in the seventeenth-century. Not only he created an unique collection of printing types but he started one of the most important adventures in the history of typography. — https://web.archive.org/web/20240128075552/https://iginomari...

    The IM Fell fonts themselves seem to live on Google Fonts these days: https://fonts.google.com/?query=Igino+Marini

    I use Doves Type for… everything. One day I started to find my monomaniacal obsession a bit funny and sort of to spite myself I set every font in Firefox to Doves Type. Serif, sans-serif, monospace, no other fonts allowed, as well as the UI font by tweaking the Firefox user profile iirc.

    And it was just… very good. And I kept using it.

    I use Doves Type for everything, and to be able to do that on my phone I use iFont: https://apps.apple.com/is/app/ifont-find-install-any-font/id...

    Or yeah I do use IBM PC VGA 9x16, IBM BIOS 8x8, and Eagle Spirit PC CGA Board Alternate 3 a little :) From the Ultimate Oldschool PC Font Pack: https://int10h.org/oldschool-pc-fonts/

    I even munged together a combination of Doves Type Regular and IM Fell Great Primer Italic that matches the character scale and linespacing to both each other and to the IBM PC VGA 9x16 font at 1:1 size. FontLab did the trick!: https://fontforge.org/en-US/

    (FontForge can autogenerate italics for any font. If you’re bored, I suggest loading up the classic VGA font and pressing the ITALICIZE button on ot. It’s… interesting!)

    In general, on Windows I much prefer MacType’s fomt rendering: https://www.mactype.net … it’s kind of amazing that this kind of surgery is even possible.

  • Add a Custom Font to Your XCode Project
    1 project | dev.to | 4 May 2024
    Choose and download font When choosing a font for your application design, you need to consider the factors such as the font's readability, its contrast, how well it can scale on different devices, and whether it matches your application's brand and color scheme. After deciding the font, download its .tff files. One can get these files from Google Fonts. In this example, we will download 'Sedan SC' font.
