Variable fonts have become increasingly popular in recent years because of their flexibility and ability to adapt to different sizes and styles. However, they are not always compatible with all devices and platforms. One solution to this problem is to convert variable fonts from TTF to Woff2 format, which is more widely supported. In this tutorial, we will show you how to do this conversion using the Alum Nissan font as an example.

Step 1: Download and Unzip the Alum Nissan Font

First, download the Alum Nissan font and save it to your desktop. Then, unzip the font to a folder on your computer. This folder will be used later in the tutorial.

Step 2: Download the Google Script

Next, download the Google Script that will be used to convert the font. The script can be found in the link provided in the details section of this tutorial. Once you have downloaded the script, create a new folder on your desktop and save the script in this folder.

Step 3: Navigate to the Folder in Terminal

Open the Terminal on your computer and navigate to the folder where the Google Script is saved. This can be done by typing in the path to the folder in the Terminal.

Step 4: Run the Google Script

Once you are in the correct folder in Terminal, run the Google Script by copying and pasting the script into the Terminal. This may take some time, depending on your computer’s speed.

Note: This tutorial was written using a Mac OS. While it should work on Windows, we cannot guarantee compatibility.

Step 5: Drag and Drop the Font into the Script

After the Google Script has finished running, you will see a new folder created within the folder where the script is saved. Open this folder and locate the “convert Fonts Here” folder. Drag and drop the Alum Nissan font into this folder.

Step 6: Trigger the Script

Finally, trigger the script by double-clicking on the “convert.command” file within the folder where the script is saved. This will convert the variable font from TTF to Woff2 format.


In just a few easy steps, you can convert variable fonts from TTF to Woff2 format, making them more widely supported and compatible with different devices and platforms. This conversion process can help optimize the size of the font and make it more efficient for web use.
