It's a pity you have removed the Web Font Loader JS string ;\ As a developer I'm disappointed.
Andreas Mitschke@andmitsch · I own a computer
@sweetiebelka That might be because Typekit/Google's and every js webfont loader is far from good practice. No caching, no compression, potential script issues, slow performance and guaranteed FOUT. Atm, the most performant and easiest to maintain way remains simple CDN-hosted CSS @ inclusion and let the browser engine care about the rest.

@andmitsch @sweetiebelka I like how storing the font in localStorage is even better. Easily implemented with https://jaicab.com/localFont/

@vallieres @sweetiebelka doesn't saving in local storage come with certain licensing issues? I'd like to know how local storage competes with browser cache - performance-wise.

@andmitsch @sweetiebelka I suggest reading this: https://www.smashingmagazine.com... it's much better explained than I can in a simple PH comment ;D

@vallieres @sweetiebelka sweet, thanks ^^

@andmitsch @vallieres nice tool. Yet, a gulp (grunt/webpack) task is a must, don't you think? Visiting your page each time I need to compile fonts is annoying. I prefer having all the stuff in my gulpfile.js

@sweetiebelka @andmitsch totally agree :) However, I do not often rebuild my fonts. So yes, its a manual step but one that I usually done only once. But if you have, for example an icon font, I can see the usefulness of a Gulp or Grunt task! :)

So fresh & minimalistic design, yet in the previous version it is easier to embedd fonts in markup.

What a wonderful job. This should not go unnoticed!

Looks great, but disappointed with the removal of the JS embed option.
