🦆 My new font project now has a Git repository: codeberg.org/skyjake/smol-emoj

The test page shows that a quarter of Emojis are currently missing in Lagrange: gemini://skyjake.fi/smol-emoji


@jk I like what I'm seeing! Could you upload source code and individual SVGs and PNGs as well? Like the Twemoji repo does.

This would likely necessitate changing the license to a CC one, and then a different one for code. Or CC0 for everything heh.

The advantage is it makes the font more portable, and people can contribute changes to the SVGs or new symbols.

@makeworld The source file is a Glyphs.app document. Not sure if/when I’ll include that in the repo.

Exporting all the individual glyphs to SVG should be doable with a script at some point. Another script would be needed to compile the SVGs back into an OTF. I’m pretty sure such scripts already exist somewhere… Let’s see if I have time to set this up.

I’ll think about the licensing, but pretty happy with OFL for now.

@jk oh interesting. But yeah getting SVGs would be great! Sounds like there's no easy way to contribute if you're not on Mac then though.

I have no issue with the license, I just figured it wouldn't cover the SVGs and scripts. But maybe it can! Haven't looked into it.


@makeworld I will elaborate on contributing in the readme. Basically one will need to send me a bunch of individual SVGs and/or an OTF/TTF font file with new glyphs, and I’ll manually review (also perhaps edit) and insert them into the master document.

OFL is pretty flexible:
