This is a very short post, the first of a series I’m going to write regarding Linux installations and helpful scripts.

I just started writing and published a very first version of a script that aims to improve privacy and usability on the web. This script downloads the current version of Google Fonts repo, creates a new empty directory that holds these files, and then grep-s all the .ttf files. These fonts are then included in a new folder named google-fonts.

Afterwards, the script tries to detect your OS (operating system) and then if Linux or MacOS is detected, it moves (installs) these fonts in the local .fonts folder (if Linux) and /Library/Fonts/ (if MacOS).

To complement this script, you will have to block all Google Fonts on your browser, using uBlock Origin. You can find a list for that on my blocklist page from theel0ja, until I automate this process with the script (expect that on a v3 or v4).
