Home / API / Everything Fonts font-face generation API

font-face generation API allows you generate @font-face kits using REST API. This allows you to serve fonts over the browser for your webpages.

API End Points

The end point for connecting : If you subscribe directly from us use this endpoint.
http://font.rest/

Authentication

Currently we support API Key based authentication. Please set a request header 'X-EverythingFonts-Api-Secret' with value of your API key. Alternatively you can also pass api_key= as a request parameter, though we strongly discourage this mode of passing the key.

Adding fonts to the system privateratelimited

To do any operations on a font file it has to be added to our system first. This will exist in your account and no one else can see or access this resource. Once you add the file you can refer to the font using the id returned from the API call.

POST/font

Add the font to the system.

Parameters
Parameter NameParameter TypeDescription
fontbinaryFont file to upload.
output
The result is a json object with an id for the uploaded font file.

To add a font to the system do a post with the font file attached to the following url.

http://font.rest/font.json

Here is an example of adding a font using CURL to post to the API

curl -v -i -X POST -H 'X-EverythingFonts-Api-Secret: <api_key>' -F font=@myraid.ttf http://font.rest/font.json

The above call if successful will return a json response something like this.

{
"success": {
"total": 1
},
"contents": {
"id": "BMruFarhaMcvj6oGeAb62itgeF"
}}
The id in the contents is the font id that you should use in any of the subsequent calls.

Listing fonts in the system privateratelimited

To list the fonts in the system use the following API.

http://font.rest/font/list.json

By using the parameter "start" you can browse all the fonts(that you have added before) in the system. Use the parameter "public" to control whether to include public fonts or not in your list.

http://font.rest/font/list.json?start=10&public=0

Here is an example of listing the fonts using curl.

curl -X GET -H 'X-Everythingfonts-Api-Secret: ' "http://font.rest/font/list?start=10&public=0"

The above command will return a result something like the following.

{
"success": {
"total": "75",
"count": 11,
"range": {
"start": 10,
"end": 21
}},
"contents": {
"contents": [
{
"name": "IM FELL French Canon PRO Regular",
"id": "RQMdiZs_C7IdyHPBV_FpGAeF",
"private": "1",
"created_on": "2014-12-18 19:20:23"

"private": "1",
"created_on": "2014-12-18 19:20:23"
}...
]
}}
