Freedombone Blog / Epicyon custom fonts

One advantage of self-hosting is that you have the opportunity to really customize the internet systems that you're running to reflect your own personal style. This is something which you'll never get from commercial silo systems, who always impose a boring user interface consistency.

Epicyon now has better support for fonts. Within theme.py a particular font can be defined as part of a theme, and the font file should exist within the fonts directory.

If you want to use a particular font with your instance then you can add it to the fonts directory, rename it as custom.ttf/woff/woff2/otf and then restart the daemon. Many fonts are under the Open Font License and so could be used freely.
