How to add fonts to a Vue app

In this tutorial, we will learn how to add fonts to a vue app which is created using the vue-cli.

Adding local fonts

  1. Open your vue app in your favorite code editor.
  2. Create a new folder called fonts inside the src folder.
  3. Download your favorite fonts and place them inside the fonts folder.
  4. Open your App.vue file and include the font by referencing the path.
App.vue
<style>
@font-face {
  font-family: "Merienda";
  src: local("Merienda"),   url(./fonts/Merienda/Merienda-Regular.ttf) format("truetype");}
</style>

Here I added a Merienda font.

Now, we can use this font throughout our app like this.

Home.vue
<style>
  .description{
     font-family: "Merienda", Helvetica, Arial;
     font-size: 20px;
  }
</style>

Adding Google fonts

We can also use google fonts (api) instead of local fonts by using @import rule.

App.vue
<style>

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Merienda&display=swap');
</style>
