Style Specification

Glyphs

A style's glyphs property provides a URL template for loading signed-distance-field glyph sets in PBF format.

"glyphs": "mapbox://fonts/mapbox/{fontstack}/{range}.pbf"

This URL template should include two tokens:

  • {fontstack} When requesting glyphs, this token is replaced with a comma separated list of fonts from a font stack specified in the text-font property of a symbol layer.
  • {range} When requesting glyphs, this token is replaced with a range of 256 Unicode code points. For example, to load glyphs for the Unicode Basic Latin and Basic Latin-1 Supplement blocks, the range would be 0-255. The actual ranges that are loaded are determined at runtime based on what text needs to be displayed.
