Google Fonts installer
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
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).
