    unicode-ranger-cli

    Generates valid unicode ranges for use in the unicode-ranges CSS property, or font subsetting with pyftsubset by reading the content of a document. Uses unicode-ranger.

    Ever wanted to examine the content of a URL (or URLs) and get unicode ranges that you can use in a CSS unicode-range statement? Or for font subsetting? Now you can.

    Usage and examples

    Using unicode-ranger is very easy:

    unicode-ranger [url]
    

    If you only have one URL, just pass it in:

    unicode-ranger https://example.com
    

    This command will produce output similar to something below:

    U+A,U+20,U+2E,U+44-45,U+4D,U+54,U+59,U+61-69,U+6B-70,U+72-79
    

    For multiple URLs, place URLs into a text file (one URL per line), and specify the file instead of a URL:

    unicode-ranger urls.txt
    

    Subsetting

    If you have pyftsubset installed from the fonttools Python package, you can use the output of this program to subset a font like so:

    pyftsubset font.ttf --unicodes=`echo $(unicode-ranger https://example.com)` --output-file=font.ttf --name-IDs='*'
    

    Contributing/whatever

    This program is just a CLI interface for unicode-ranger, so if there are problems with the program, they're likely due to problems in the underlying module, so log an issue over there. If you want to contribute, just fork this CLI (or the module) and send me a PR and I'll review it.

    Special thanks
