In the previous post you can read about my switch from Grav to Hexo. Thanks to the very good documentation for Hexo and my choice of theme «NexT», I only wrote a small paragraph about the configuration of my website. The one thing that isn’t documented as well is the process of installing custom fonts. While one of the sections talks about font customization, it is focused on selecting fonts that are available online. Specifically, the example is tailored for google fonts. That is great unless you have your own set of fonts.
It isn’t that difficult to figure out how to get hexo to accept locally stored web fonts, but it seemed like a good opportunity for me to write about my experience installing custom fonts, including about the why and how I chose the fonts that you see right now as you are reading this post.
