Convert Font Suitcase to TTF

TLDR; Use Fondu to convert fonts to .ttf

To convert the fonts to TTF, I use Fondu.
A set of programs to interconvert between mac font formats and pfb, ttf, otf and bdf files on unix. Fondu will read a series of mac files, check their resource forks and extract all font related items into seperate files.

Install Fondu (OSX)
  1. Download Fondu
  2. Open terminal

  4. terminal: ./configure
  5. terminal: make
  6. terminal: sudo make install

  3. Done.

Convert to Webfonts
