Task

Use Roboto Slab as roman, Roboto as sans and Roboto Mono as, well, mono. Also provide normal and condensed sans.

Requirements

Download the Roboto fonts from Google’s Github projects (Sans and Mono, Slab), from Fonts or several other font pages.

Put the font files e.g. in texmf-fonts/fonts/truetype/google/roboto and reload the font database:

 mtxrun --script fonts --reload

Check if ConTeXt can find them:

 mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=robot

That should result in something like this:

Now we need to write a typescript... (TODO)

Problem

ConTeXt only offers two different font weights inside a typescript definition - Roboto offers six different font weights. A typescript definition also does’t know font variants and Roboto Sans offers two (normal and condensed).

Solution

You need to pair the specific weight and variants you want in your document.
