@font-face

Post by r3za » Mon Jun 11, 2012 7:54 pm

Hello all,

@font-face Extension:
Here is an extension to support any type of font on any device or browser. All fonts are saved on your server and you do not relay on any external link etc. Basically it does bullet proof your web fonts.

The extension supports:
TTF for Firefox 3.5+ , Opera 10+, Safari 3.1+, Chrome 4.0.249.4+
EOT fonts for Internet Explorer 4+
WOFF fonts for Firefox 3.6+, Internet Explorer 9+, Chrome 5+
SVG fonts for iPad and iPhone

here is the demo:

http://virtualdesigners.co.uk/projects/ ... font-face1

This extension is for free of charge for now and you can download it including Help document from below links:

WB Version 7.X and 8.1
http://www.virtualdesigners.co.uk/proje ... .x-8.1.zip

WB Version 8.2
http://www.virtualdesigners.co.uk/proje ... ce-8.2.zip

Please email me your thoughts and feedback
reza@virtualdesigners.com

P.S. I have tested with 7.x, 8.1 and 8.2 and and it works sweet. I believe it does need more tweaking and work to make it with more options and more friendly which I will be doing in next version. but I think for now it does the basic job.

@r3za you may have to provide two versions of the extension why I hear you ask it you build the extension with EB4.0 then then it can only be used with WB8.2 so any user that is using any earlier version of ie WB 8.1.5 and below will not be able to use unless they update.

Yes, Actually when I build with E.B 3 it works with all versions but HTML rendering doesn't work with the actual extension when you add it to the page which is quite useful. Best practice as you said it is two versions. Thanks BaconFries for the heads up.

Hello Prosenjeet,
E.B 2.6 didnt work for WB8.2 as the concept is different. I have used E.B 2.6 to build WB 8.1 and below and E.B. 3.0 for 8.2. This was only to make sure it is covered all options inc. Live HTML rendering.
thanks for feedback!

I had mailed Support about this and I have his confirmation that all extensions made with EB2.6 or above will work with WB 8.2 and above. Only that extensions built with EB4 will work ONLY on 8.2 and above.

Thanks Prosenjeet. I will email as well. the problem is when i use the extension that is built with 2.6 for WB 8.2, it force the fonts to the ./fonts folder even though the code is not actual ./fonts and its root and from other side if on version 8.1 and lower, if i change the fonts directory to ./font in the code, it does not output the actual font files to fonts folder. so each way has disadvantage. when also I use EB3, it works for both versions but HTML LIVE rendering fails for for 8.2 which is quite useful for this purpose.

@Reza Great stuff but do you have a live site that demonstrates this extension's capabilities?

Hi Reza,

Don't know if you use these options in your extension(haven't tried it yet)

The last comment on following page.

Oh and here's a converter for fonts to use with your extension.
For the extra options for other devices
Use the expert option http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator

How does this differ from the in-built @font-face ?
