Locally Host Fonts Easily with Typeface npm Package
Turns out "self-hosting" web fonts is much faster than using Google or Adobe's CDN.
You can put the font file into your assets folder in a Gatsby project, and that'll work just fine.
I opted to use this npm package called Typefaces by Gatsby's Kyle Mathews. Trusted source and all that.
More importantly, I didn't have to go and track down the font files I wanted to use.
In your terminal:
yarn add typeface-open-sans typeface-raleway
All set. Gatsby will even put the CSS in my
<head> so it all loads faster.
