glyphhanger

Your web font utility belt. It can subset web fonts. It can show you what unicode-ranges are used on a web site (optionally per font-family). It can also subset web fonts automatically using the unicode-ranges it found. It makes julienne fries.

Installation

Available on npm.

npm install -g glyphhanger

Prerequisite: pyftsubset

See https://github.com/fonttools/fonttools.

pip install fonttools
# Additional installation for --flavor=woff2
git clone https://github.com/google/brotli
cd brotli
python setup.py install

# Additional installation for --flavor=woff --with-zopfli
git clone https://github.com/anthrotype/py-zopfli
cd py-zopfli
git submodule update --init --recursive
python setup.py install

Usage

Find the glyphs in a local file or url

# local file
glyphhanger ./test.html
glyphhanger ./test.txt

# output characters instead of Unicode code points
glyphhanger ./test.html --string

# remote URL
glyphhanger http://example.com

# multiple URLs, optionally using HTTPS
glyphhanger https://google.com https://www.filamentgroup.com

# show results for each font-family on the page
glyphhanger ./test.html --json

# show results only for one or more font-family names
glyphhanger ./test.html --family='Open Sans, Roboto'

# Show version
glyphhanger --version

# See more usage
glyphhanger --help

Debug Mode

Replaces --verbose in v3.0.0.

> DEBUG=glyphhanger* glyphhanger http://example.com

Subset font files automatically

Use --subset=*.ttf to select some font files for subsetting. Note that you can also subset yourself manually with pyftsubset (but glyphhanger is easier).

Note that the DEBUG output documented above will log the specific pyftsubset command that glyphhanger used. Read more about pyftsubset defaults.

Just make optimized TTF/WOFF/WOFF2 files

Specify the formats to output

Available formats: ttf,woff,woff-zopfli,woff2.

Output a @font-face block with --css

Because we’re not parsing URLs for glyphs, we can optionally use --family='My Family Name' to set the name used in the @font-face block. Normally --family would tell GlyphHanger to only parse text data from nodes using one of the fonts listed in --family. Using --subset and --css together will write a CSS file, too.

Writing CSS file: LatoLatin-Regular.css

@font-face {
  font-family: LatoLatin;
  src: url(sourcesanspro-regular-subset.woff2) format("woff2"), url(sourcesanspro-regular-subset.woff) format("woff");
  unicode-range: U+41-44;
}

Whitelist Characters

# Add in a whitelist of specific characters
glyphhanger https://google.com --whitelist=abcdefgh

# Add in a whitelist as a unicode range
glyphhanger https://google.com --whitelist=U+26

# shortcut to add in a whitelist of all of US-ASCII (with an optional whitelist)
glyphhanger https://google.com --US_ASCII --whitelist=™

# shortcut to add in a whitelist of all Latin characters (with an optional whitelist)
glyphhanger https://google.com --LATIN --whitelist=™

Manual subsetting

glyphhanger --whitelist=ABCD --subset=*.ttf

Converting unicode ranges and back again

# Convert a string to a unicode-range
glyphhanger --whitelist=ABCD
glyphhanger --US_ASCII
glyphhanger --US_ASCII --whitelist=ABCD

# Convert a unicode-range to a string
glyphhanger --whitelist=U+41-44 --string

Use the spider to gather URLs from links

Finds all the <a href> elements on the page with local (not external) links and adds those to the glyphhanger URLs. If you specify --spider-limit, --spider is assumed.

glyphhanger ./test.html --spider
glyphhanger ./test.html --spider-limit
glyphhanger ./test.html --spider-limit=10

# No limit
glyphhanger ./test.html --spider-limit=0

Default --spider-limit is 10. Set to 0 for no limit. This will greatly affect how long the task takes.

Only search your page for visible text

Make your output even smaller by only subsetting characters that are visible on the page.

glyphhanger ./test.html --onlyVisible

Only search your page for text matching a CSS selector

Limit results to text inside of elements that match a CSS selector

glyphhanger ./test.html --cssSelector="pre, #header, .popUp". If paired with `--onlyVisible`, it will only return elements that are both visible and match the selector

Advanced: jsdom Mode ⚠️

JSDOM mode can be useful running against static pages that don’t use a lot of JavaScript generated content. While JSDOM mode can handle some JavaScript generated content, Puppeteer mode should be the safest method for most use cases.

JSDOM mode will also be much faster when running against files on a local filesystem rather than URL targets.

Read more about the difference between JSDOM and a full headless browser (like the default mode that glyphhanger uses: Puppeteer/headless Chrome).

# use faster jsdom mode instead of headless Chrome
glyphhanger ./test.html --jsdom

# jsdom mode works with standard input too
echo "this is a test" | glyphhanger ./test.html --jsdom

Troubleshooting

Testing

  • Build Status: Build Status

npm test will run the tests.

Or, alternatively ./node_modules/mocha/bin/mocha (or just mocha if you already have it installed globally with npm install -g mocha).
