📌 A .WOFF tech principle is based on the web font file layout generated in WOFF (Web Open Font Format) schema, an open extension definition applied for delivering custom webpage fonts on the fly. At most, .WOFF item is saved as a compressed container and is entirely compatible with OpenType (.OTF) and TrueType (.TTF) specifications. Besides, the .WOFF file standard also supports diverse font licensing metadata and markers. The .WOFF technology also permits web-developers to apply custom fonts rather than the essential, typical web font build-ups. A solid variety of contemporary web-browsers is consistent with the .WOFF mechanics, but a majority of them are not compatible with the noted standard of recent revisions. .WOFF file samples are referenced within .CSS file records using the @font-face condition. Afterwards, the mentioned file schema has been consecutively superseded by .WOFF2 layout entries, which implements extended, advanced compression ratio.
📌 The .WOFF data entities can be smoothly uncovered, opened up and reviewed by a few certain tools, capable of comprehending the relevant font features and properties. Precisely, the .WOFF file logic is perfectly recognizable by FontForge and FontExplorer X Pro tools, compliant with all up-to-date desktop systems and platforms, including Linux and all of its related forks and distributions. Accurately, the FontForge suite is an ultimate software solution which permits you to create and design new TTF and OTF font resources from the respective source .WOFF file sample. Such a principle significantly facilitates the outcome process of generating stylish, well-looking font elements with considered indentation, layout and schema, based on your personal custom preferences and wishes. While FontForge is shared on the freeware license, the FontExplorer X Pro toolkit provides a chance to download only a trial edition for free, while the rest of efforts with font file customization would require auxiliary proprietary license acquisition.
