[page:Loader] →


Class for loading a font in JSON format. Returns a font, which is an array of [page:Shape Shapes] representing the font. This uses the [page:FileLoader] internally for loading files.

You can convert fonts online using [link:https://gero3.github.io/facetype.js/ facetype.js]

Code Example

const loader = new FontLoader(); const font = loader.load( // resource URL 'fonts/helvetiker_bold.typeface.json', // onLoad callback function ( font ) { // do something with the font console.log( font ); }, // onProgress callback function ( xhr ) { console.log( (xhr.loaded / xhr.total * 100) + '% loaded' ); }, // onError callback function ( err ) { console.log( 'An error happened' ); } );
