OMGF (Optimize My Google Fonts. Also known as ‘Host Google Fonts Locally’ and CAOS for Webfonts) is a cool plugin for WordPress. It enables you to fine-tune your websites’ performance by allowing you to self-host your WordPress theme’s Google Fonts (and others). Minimize external requests and leverage browser cache by uploading your webfonts and let OMGF do the rest!
It’s completely integrated with WordPress to guarantee complete compatibility. Simply look-up your webfonts using the Google Fonts Helper API and let OMGF take care of everything else! The stylesheet is automagically generated and immediately registered and enqueued in your theme’s header so it’s ready for use.
Why should I host Google Webfonts locally?
OMGF gives you the best of both worlds. The luxury to use any webfont you like and the ability to minimize DNS requests and leverage browser cache. Hosting Google Webfonts locally will lower your site’s loading time, because your visitor’s browser doesn’t have to make a round-trip to Google’s servers to download the fonts. Instead it loads it immediately from your server, along with everything else!
