Embed Google Fonts

Description

Embed Google Fonts tries to automatically replace registered Google Fonts from themes and plugins with local versions, directly loaded from your own server.

Contribute: https://github.com/moewe-io/embed-google-fonts

Notes

  • The first request might be very slow, as fonts are downloaded and cached the first time they are requested.
  • This doesn’t automatically replace all your Google fonts with local versions. If a plugin/theme doesn’t use WordPress wp_enqueue_style it probably won’t work.
  • Loaded fonts are not optimized, means, the whole font including all subsets is loaded
  • See FAQ for instructions to use locally hosted fonts directly and avoid using Heroku

Thank you: Fonts are downloaded using: https://google-webfonts-helper.herokuapp.com/fonts

FAQ

How to use locally stored fonts directly?

It is possible to avoid using Heroku and directly use locally hosted fonts.

Easy way:

  • Let the plugin download the fonts
    • Click the button in the plugin list overview 😉

Custom way:

  • Create a folder « embed-google-fonts » in your « wp-content » folder
  • For every font create a subfolder, i.e. « embed-google-fonts/open-sans/ »
    • Create a file « embed-google-fonts/open-sans/_font.css »
    • Edit your « _font.css » to include rules for loading your local font

Does this work with every theme and plugin?

No, themes and plugins must use wp_enqueue_style to load Google Fonts.
Just try it, if it works, than you are fine.

Fonctionne-t-il avec les extensions de mise en cache ?

En général, oui. Vous pouvez exclure certains fichiers en cas de problème.

Fonctionne-t-il avec WP Rocket ?

Yes, it is working with WP Rocket.

Does it work with WP Fastest Cache?

Si vous utilisez WP Fastest Cache, vous devez créer une règle CSS d’exclusion pour « _font.css »

I tried some of these plugins because people try to make money from people using google fonts directly in Germany. This one worked like a charm, I just had to get rid of one CSS-Import manually. But there was one request to fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans I could not get rid of. It took me ages to realize, it was from the Wordpress Admin Bar. So you need to check in a fresh brwoser-window, best a private one. Thx to the people behind this plugin!

Thank you guys. I appreciate your work! This is a wonderful example of how things should be: Someone just does the right thing. Even more admirable is that that is avalable to the public without a fee. Is there hope for mankind? 🙂 Cheers, Frank
