Custom assets

Malibu supports custom/static assets like fonts, images, icons, etc. We will follow the below steps for loading custom fonts in Malibu.

Steps to implement the custom fonts

  1. Create static-assets folder inside app. Ex: app/static-assets.

Static assets

  1. ut all the fonts inside the above folder or you can create a separate folder for the fonts and put it inside the static-assets folder. Ex: app/static-assets/fonts.

  2. Now open app/server/handlers/render-layout.js and use your fonts as shown below:

...
import { assetPath } from "@quintype/framework/server/asset-helper";

const shurjo700eot = assetPath("ShurjoWeb_700_v2.eot"); //example of ShurjoWeb_700_v2 fonts

res.render(
      "pages/layout",
      Object.assign(
        {
         ....
          shurjo700woff: shurjo700woff,
         ...
        }
      )
    )
...
  1. And the final step is to use the above custom fonts in /layout.ejs file.
...
 @font-face {
          font-family: "Shurjo";
          font-display: swap;
          font-weight: 700; 
          font-style: normal;
          src: url(<%= shurjo700Woff %>) format('woff'),
        }
...

The expected fonts should be applied in the app now. The same implementation can be replicated for other assets.

Note - If you are putting HD images/icons inside static-assets folder, they may cause an increase in the quay build time.

You may now proceed to Third Party Integrations or jump to a recipe from the Tutorial.
