Overview

Font load events, simple, small and efficient. It wil use the FontFace api if available, otherwise it falls back to a Dart port of https://github.com/bramstein/fontfaceobserver

Usage Example

import 'package:font_face_observer/font_face_observer.dart';
import 'package:font_face_observer/data_uri.dart';

FontFaceObserver ffo = new FontFaceObserver('Arial', weight: 'bold');
FontLoadResult result = await ffo.load('/url/to/arial.ttf');
if (result.isLoaded) {
    // at this point we're absolutely sure that the font has loaded
}
if (result.didTimeout) {
    // We've timed out and are not sure if the font has loaded.
    // You can reissue a ffo.check() call to check again if you want
}

// Build a base64 encoded data URI
DataUri di = new DataUri();
  ..data = DataUri.base64EncodeString('test');
  ..mimeType = 'text/plain';
  ..encoding = 'utf-8';
di.toString(); # data:text/plain;charset=utf-8;base64,dGVzdA==

Run the demo

To run the demo, just install dependencies and run pub serve test. Then open http://localhost:8080

pub get
pub serve test

Public API

// Constructing a new FontFaceObserver (with default values)
FontFaceObserver(
    String family,
    {
        String style: 'normal',
        String weight: 'normal',
        String stretch: 'normal',
        String testString: 'BESbswy',
        int timeout: 3000,
        bool useSimulatedLoadEvents: false
    }
);

// Check if the font face is loaded successfully
Future<FontLoadResult> check() async

// Load a font from the given URL by adding a font-face rule
// returns the same Future<FontLoadResult> from check()
Future<FontLoadResult> load(String url) async

// Unload a group of fonts (static call)
Future<int> FontFaceObserver.unloadGroup(String group);

// Unload a specific font by key and group
Future<bool> FontFaceObserver.unload(String key, String group);

Notes

Font Face Observer will use the FontFace API https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/FontFace if available to detect when a font has loaded. If the browser does not support that API it will fallback to the method used in https://github.com/bramstein/fontfaceobserver which relies on scroll events when the font loads and is quite efficient. If you want to force the use of the fallback mode, you can set useSimulatedLoadEvents: true when constructing your FontFaceObserver.
