Question: Font test-drive suggestions?

Any recommendations for a script or plugin for a website? to test-drive fonts.

Thanks

Perhaps @mekkablue’s Webfont Test HTML script https://github.com/mekkablue/Glyphs-Scripts/blob/master/Test/Webfont%20Test%20HTML.py would do what you’re looking for?

I recently open-sourced some InDesign test documents. They are not as dynamic as a webpage tester but you might find them helpful and build on them.

Check the folders Global Tests and Style Tests. You just need to edit the Default Character Style and choose your font and the documents will change accordingly.

Type-X by Arrow Type let’s you change the fonts of any website and replace them with local fonts. Disclaimer: I haven’t tested it myself yet.
