I know how and I can convert the images to base64 via OS X and Linux terminals.

But I'm not sure if I can convert the fonts and the SVGs to base64 via offline OS X and Linux terminals.

I don't know any offline base64 apps that encode the images, fonts and SVG for OS X and linux. I know Coda 2 has base64 plugin, but it's bug and suffers a fail. TextMate has Emmet plugin that comes with base64 encoder, but I tried and it wasn't converted. Brackets has Emmet too, but Emmet doesn't have base64 plugin. These plugins convert only the images.


On both systems you can use the base64 command.


cat test.svg | base64

to encode and

echo "<base64>" | base64 -d

and replace -d with -D on macOS.

The base64 utility comes preinstalled on most Linux distros as well as macOS.
