Hey wonderful self-hosters! So I launched my community a couple of weeks ago, https://community.vscodetips.com. I was working on adding some navigation links for the left sidebar. I initally started with the Twemoji icons as that's what we use for the other icons in the Forem codebase.
A simple library that provides standard Unicode emoji support across all platforms.
The Twemoji library offers support for 3,521 Unicode-defined emojis.
The folks over at MaxCDN have graciously provided CDN support.
Use the following in the
<head> tag of your HTML document(s):
<script src="https://twemoji.maxcdn.com/v/latest/twemoji.min.js" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
This guarantees that you will always use the latest version of the library.
If, instead, you'd like to include the latest version explicitly, you can add the following tag:
<script src="https://twemoji.maxcdn.com/v/13.1.0/twemoji.min.js" integrity="sha384-gPMUf7aEYa6qc3MgqTrigJqf4gzeO6v11iPCKv+AP2S4iWRWCoWyiR+Z7rWHM/hU" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
If instead you want to download a specific version, please look at the
gh-pages branch, where you will find…
I thought they were OK, but wanted to find something else. I remembered Josh W. Comeau talking about Feather Icons.
They're SVG and MIT licensed, so I went with those. Here's what it looks like with the Hacker theme enabled.
I'm curious what icons you use in your Forem instance?
