Attributes

Required

name 
Name of the typeface. Please be specific so the font preview works well.
style 
Style of the typeface: Serif, Sans-serif, Script, Blackletter, Display, Symbol

Optional (Not required, but recommended)

image 
Image of name of the font, set in its own face. This is different than the sample attribute below.
SVG file format is recommended.
imagesize 
Width of the image to display (default is 300px).
classifications 
The Vox-ATypI classification for the typeface, such as "Humanist", "Didone", "Geometric", or "Lineal humanist".
creator 
Name of this font's designer(s), if known. Otherwise leave blank and fill in foundry name.
commissioned_by 
Name of organization or individual who originally commissioned the typeface to be created.
foundry 
The original distributor and license owners of the typeface.
Note: Monotype doesn't link to the foundry.
creationdate 
The year the font was created.
releasedate 
The year the typeface was first released, if different than the creation date.
foundries 
The names of foundries that have re-issued the typeface in the same format or formats differing from the original, e.g., digital.
glyphs 
The number of glyphs the font contains, or an estimate if not available.
characters 
The number of unique characters; specify encoding if other than Unicode.
license 
The license the font is published under, e.g. "OFL", "CC0", or "Proprietary".
based_on 
Refers to the original design on which a revival, reinterpretation, homage or extension is based upon. This is not the same as a clone, for which the "aka" attribute should be used.

aka 
Alternate (or imitation) names for other fonts based on this typeface. For instance, "Swiss 721" is Bitstream's name for its release of Helvetica.
metrically_compatible_with 
A metrically compatible typeface, or a plainlist of such typefaces. Where the typeface has an article in Wikipedia, wikilink it. See this ArchWiki page for examples, but avoid linking clones lacking notability.
