$houtout: Font Squirrel

March 6th, 2012 by Gage Pacifera

Wow, looks like it has been a while since I last posted.. so how’s about I remedy that with a $houtout? Okay, sounds like a plan!

Today’s $houtout goes to Font Squirrel and their super handy @font-face generator. This free service takes a font uploaded from your computer and uses that to dynamically generate a cross-browser compatible web font. The download package comes with an example CSS file to get you started and you can upload multiple fonts at once. I’ve used this service many times for creating web fonts for non-standard font types and it has worked like a charm. High time I gave some thanks.. so thank you Font Squirrel, you are awesome.


The Harmonic Northwest $houtout is an effort to give some money and recognition to those selfless developers who offer up their expertise to help the development community in exchange for a voluntary donation.
