Grunt Task for Installing TypoPRO Fonts


Grunt Task for Installing TypoPRO Fonts

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-typopro --save-dev

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

  • directory (default .): The directory where to store the resulting files.

  • mergecss (default false): Whether to merge all TypoPRO-*-*.css files into a single TypoPRO.css.

  • blurb (default true): Whether to keep the TypoPRO-*-*.txt "blurb" files. They provide meta-information about the font plus license details.

  • fonts (default []): The names of the font families to install. At least one has to be given. The available font families are: Aileron, Aleo, Amble, AnonymousPro, BebasNeue, Bitter, Cabin, CaptureIt, ClearSans, Courgette, CourierPrime, CreteRound, Crimson, DancingScript, DejaVu, Droid, EBGaramond, FiraMono, FiraSans, Gentium, GrandHotel, GreatVibes, HHSamuel, Journal, KingthingsPetrock, KomikaHand, KomikaText, LatinModern, Lato, LearningCurve, LibreBaskerville, Lora, Merriweather, NautilusPompilius, Neuton, OpenSans, OstrichSans, Oxygen, Poetsen, Pompiere, Roboto, SourceCodePro, SourceSansPro, TeXGyre, TopSecret, Ubuntu, Vegur, VeteranTypewriter, Vollkorn, YanoneKaffeesatz, Yellowtail.

Run this task with the grunt typopro command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the Grunt Configuring tasks guide.

Assuming we have the following environment:

  • Gruntfile.js:
// [...] 
    typopro: {
        options: {
            directory: "lib/typopro",
            mergecss: true,
            fonts: [ "Aleo", "GreatVibes", "TopSecret" ]
// [...] 
  • index.html:
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <link href="lib/typopro/TypoPRO.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
        <style type="text/css">
            body {
                font-family: "TypoPRO Aleo";
                font-size:   20pt;
                margin:      20px;
            .tag {
                font-family: "TypoPRO Great Vibes";
                font-size:   40pt;
            .draft {
                font-family: "TypoPRO Top Secret";
                font-size:   60pt;
                position:    absolute;
                top:         120px;
                right:       100px;
                transform:   rotate(-10deg);
                color:       #ff0000;
                opacity:     0.5;
        <div class="draft">{Draft}</div>
        Penultimate: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog<br/>
        <b>Penultimate: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog</b><br/>
        <i>Penultimate: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog</i><br/>
        <b><i>Penultimate: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog</i></b><br/>
        <div class="tag">Lovely Fonts!</div>

Then running grunt typopro installs into lib/ all files neccessary to use the TypoPRO font families Aleo, Great Vibes and Top Secret from within index.html.
