Hello Type.World

Type.World is in the process of becoming an open-source, one-click font installation app. It will be available for macOS at first, then other platforms will follow.

You can download a pre-alpha version of the GUI app here.


The project is currently in the earliest stages of development.

A semi-public alpha phase will open on March 9th, when the project will be presented to the public on the Robothon conference in The Hague.
Developers are invited to evaluate the project and propose changes.

A feature-complete and stable beta is expected for Fall 2018.

If you are a developer, please check out the Developers page.

How It Works:

Whenever your favourite font foundry offers your font downloads through our app, you will see a Type.World download button.

Click on it to install the fonts.

The Type.World App (you need to install it once) will come open and automatically download and install these fonts on your system. No technical understanding required.

You will be notified to install updates of fonts that you are subscribing to.

You can also choose to install font updates automatically. However, this is not recommended for professional designers, because the appearance of fonts might change in an update and it might mess with your layouts.
