Dancer::Plugin::FontSubset - Generate font subsets on-the-fly

In the app:
package MyApp; use Dancer; use Dancer::Plugin::FontSubset; ...
in the template:
Dancer::Plugin::FontSubset generate subsets of the glyphs of given fonts, a little like what Google Font provides. Currently, Dancer::Plugin::FontSubset only works for a subset TTF fonts. Always test that any given font will work well with the plugin before throwing it in a production system.
to use this plugin, put your fonts in the directory
public/fonts. The original font file can be accessed via the url
/fonts/thefont.tff (natch), and its subsets via the route
/font/thefont.ttf?t=abc, where the characters to be included in the subset are passed via the t parameter. For example, the url required to generate the font subset required to render 'Hello world' would be
/font/thefont.ttf?t=%20Helowrd (including the whitespace (%20) is important, as it is often a glyph by its own right).
A JQuery utility script is also available at
/font/subset.js. If the script is loaded by a page, it will find all elements having the subfont class, generate the characters required and query the application for the subset of whichever font provided in the data-font attribute. In other words,
