Dafont or Abstract Font site

Project Summary:

We need a piece of font previewing / management software that can be used to share and exchange fonts online in the way that [url removed, login to view] operates. This could be based on an existing script that you have or modified from multiple scripts. Someone with previous experience setting up a font website would find this job very fast.

To do list=



-top fonts/most downloaded

-featured fonts

-latest fonts

-submit fonts

-report bad font

-email font

-download font

-preview font

-sort fonts

-dynamic text preview font (Ajax?)

-search w/different filters

-commerical font search results integrated from [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] datafeeds.

-search engine friendly(seo)

-simple, clean, quick, design, easily customized header/footer area


Person should have knowledge of php and GD image library.

Extended Explanation:

We need a person to write a script that will allow us to take our entire font library, upload it to our server, and then create preview images for each font. The font text should also be able to be replaced, again, see Each font should be able to be rapidly entered into a database without needing to upload one by one, and the script should automatically read the embedded font name and display that as the default preview text. Fonts should be able to be tagged with meta data or IPTC information automatically so that when they are uploaded to the DB, IPTC information can hit speciffic fields / values.

It is necessary to be able to sort fonts be category and then access those categories directly, as well as have information entered for each font contribution like, date of creation, date of submission, etc so that the DB can be sorted and displayed accordingly. Again, look at


We have been trying to find a way for us to share our many fonts with each other in a way that is just as useful and sophisticated as some of the font foundries that exist on the internet, with admin features, previewing and searching power.

We have a server complete w/ imagemagick and GD so we can generate font images and temporary dmg files from these two server-side resources.

After looking through many sites on the internet, I realized that there does not seem to be such a tool that is availble to share font through a php database. This was very surprising to me because we all know how many hundreds, perhaps thousands of font sites exist on the internet. Many of them have similar functionality. I don't think it is possible for them all to be developing their own php databases and templates for each site.

One of the best of font sites, I think, is [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] --- particularly the first one, which has a feature where you can search for a font based on its name, preview all fonts in their name:

[url removed, login to view] indexes fonts using php based on categories, and then, each font is previewed by default in the name of the font. They also have a 'top 100' feature which I believe is automated, listing the top 100 fonts downloaded from their site.

So.... I have been trying to find a php script online that will allow me to index fonts - similar to the way that [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] or any other major font distributor on the internet is able to generate preview images from their ttf files dynamically using imagemagick or GD. I found this tool:

Web Font Viewer

[url removed, login to view]

If you 'register' and 'Log-in' it will allow you to change 'sample text' under 'settings' - the same feature as the [url removed, login to view] Custom Preview. This tool is basically a very basic username / auth tool and a way to create images using imagemagick /gd from TTF.

Some strengths:

- seems to be quite stable at creating images from ttf fonts

- clickable feature to see full character sets of fonts is strong

That said, it's really just a font previewing application that can be used to generate images using imagemagick or GD - with a slightly more sophisticated user interface.

There does not seem to be very many solutions to the online font organization problem - at least not from what I can discern, using google to search 'font preview php' or 'font preview database' etc etc.

ALL IN ALL,CLONE OF [url removed, login to view]
