How to view webfont files (ttf, woff, woff2, eot) on a mac?


Question

Does anyone know how to view webfont file formats (ttf, woff, woff2, eot) on a Mac?

I've been sent some files and would like to view them so I can make sure all the formats are correct.

There is a QuickLook plugin that lets you preview .woff from within finder. Finder should be able to preview .ttf natively. I'm not sure this is enough for testing. You can take a look and verify they are working fonts, but not much more.

Another option is a Drag & Drop font testing page from Pablo Impallari. Drag the fonts from your desktop and you can see kerning, character support, opentype features and more.

Edit sept 2018: Impallari's page is down, but there are other options like Vernon Adam's testing page, the Cyreal version, Musictypefoundry's mirror or you can self-host from the source
