WebFontsContrib

Web fonts for Foswiki

This is a bundle of commonly used free web-fonts to be used in your Foswiki skin. Each font comes with a handy font-face definition that you may add to your own css. They are located in

pub/System/WebFontsContrib/<font-family>/font-face.css

For instance, given your styles.css is located in pub/System/MyThemeContrib/styles.css, then adding this will make the "Roboto" available in your design

@import url(../WebFontsContrib/roboto/font-face.css);

Depending on the font different styles and weights are defined in the font-face file.
