How to add fonts to a React app

In this tutorial, we will learn how to add fonts to the react projects which are created using the create-react-app CLI.

Adding local fonts

  1. Create a new folder called fonts in your src folder.
  2. Download the fonts locally and place them inside the fonts folder.
  3. Open your index.css file and include the font by referencing the path.
index.css
@font-face {
  font-family: 'Rajdhani';
  src: local('Rajdhani'), url(./fonts/Rajdhani/Rajdhani-Regular.ttf) format('truetype');}

Here I added a Rajdhani font.

Now, we can use our font in css classes like this.

App.css
.title{
    font-family: Rajdhani, serif;
    color: #0004;
}

Adding Google fonts

If you like to use google fonts (api) instead of local fonts, you can add it like this.

Example:

index.css
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Rajdhani:wght@300;500&display=swap');

Similarly, we can also add it inside the index.html file using link tag.

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Rajdhani:wght@300;500&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
