Though the executable may still be useful for generating Info.plist key-value pairs, there are better ways now to handle fonts in SwiftUI. This framework is very light-weight so can be easily replaced.


Easily manage a consistent global font in an iOS app, mapping UIFont.TextStyles to custom UIFonts.


// Define a global (custom) font
Font.fontManager = FontManager(fontName: "OpenSans")

// Get the font for a given text style  
label.font = Font.font(for: .body)

// Get the font for a given size and weight  
label.font = Font.font(ofSize: 21, weight: .bold)


For preferred font for text styles to work a {fontName}.plist file is required to be added to the main Bundle. This maps UIFont.TextStyles to PreferredFonts and thus a UIFont. To automatically generate this plist file see App


A companion command line program for the FontManager framework. Generates propertyList (plist) files for FontManager to reference.

The plist files which are generated include:

  • font-info.plist which maps a single UIAppFonts key to an array of fonts. Allowing you to quickly add fonts to an app Info.plist
  • {fontName}.plist mapping UIFont.TextStyles to their PreferredFonts, to drive the FontManager

How to run

From the command line: navigate to the font directory you would like to create plist files for, and simply execute:

bash -l -c "$(curl -sfL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/BenCShutt/FontManager/master/FontManagerApp/fontManagerApp.sh)"

The plist files will be written to the directory where the script is executed.
