How do i install specific fonts on my instances?

0 votes

I have a Python application running on an AWS EC2 instance that requires certain specific fonts to produce output and wonder how to install them as part of the deployment or instance launching process.

My code, running on my local machine (OS X) uses

'Arial Unicode MS' 'Open Sans'

as fonts. But these fonts are not present by default on EC2 and it is not clear to me either what packages might include the fonts I need, or how to install them.

How do I install those two fonts on EC2? By using yum or a command or container_commandas part of the deployment process specified on an .ebextensions/*.config file?

Create a fonts/ folder in your application and fill it with the font(s) you want. Create a .ebextensions/copy_fonts.config file that looks like:

container_commands: copy_fonts: command: "cp fonts/*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/"
