    SVG Glyph Icons to Web Font Generation

    About

    Glyphs2Font is a small command-line utility for converting one or more SVG-based icons into the glyphs of a Web font. The generated Web font is provided in TTF, EOF, WOFF and SVG formats and a corresponding CSS file for direct embedding is generated, too.

    Installation

    $ npm install -g glyphs2font

    $ ls -1
    example-font.yml
    icon-sign-failure.svg

    Internals

    The internal conversion process works as following:

    1. the SVG icons are converted into an SVG font with the help of svgicons2svgfont.
    2. the SVG font is converted into TrueType Font (TTF) format with the help of svg2ttf.
    3. the TTF format is converted into Embedded OpenType (EOT) format with the help of ttf2eot.
    4. the TTF format is converted into Web Open Font Format (WOFF) with the help of ttf2woff.
    5. the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) is generated for embedding the font directly into HTML pages.
    6. the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) sample page is generated for showcasing the generated font.
