Very happy to announce the release of Fork Awesome 1.0. A fork of the iconic font and CSS toolkit known as Font Awesome.

forkawesome.github.io/Fork-Awe

With the release of this fork, you'll now find icons for open source projects such as , , , , etc.

We've hopefully also made the process of contributing a lot more easier.

Thx to @KnowPresent & @n8 for the support. mastodon.social/media/Dcdq4C82

@xuv @KnowPresent @n8

Check some spelling issues on home page.

@Algot Sure. Can you point me to them ?

@xuv

Central paragraph "Font Awesome 5.0"
First line: Fort Awesome has ran" - I think you mean "Font Awesome has run"

In the bottom line it says: "Though we added a few more acions" - Do you mean "icons" or "actions"?

That's all I see right off. 😀

@Algot Oh, nice find. Now corrected. Thanks for this. If you see any more errors, please let me know.

@xuv

You bet.

Always best to have a bunch of eyes on things.

Love how fast a web page update can happen, too.

Good luck with the project.

@xuv

In the bottom paragraphs of the icons page forkawesome.github.io/Fork-Awe

You reference "Font Awesome". Was that intentional or should it say "Fork Awesome" or perhaps "Font Awesome/Fork Awesome"?

@Algot Nice find, again. There are so many of them. :) I always discover ones I left untouched. Also, since only 2 characters change it's not easy to spot. But indeed, in this case, you are correct. It should be Fork Awesome.

@xuv

See also the same "Font Awesome" vs. "Fork Awesome" issue at the bottom of the license page, then.

@Algot @xuv "Fort Awesome" isn't an error; that's the name of their company.

@KS @xuv

Thanks. I realized my error when I looked further. Initial focus was only on the announcement page.

@xuv thanks for bringing to my attention the commercial shenanigans and mismanagement of FA mainline

but any clue what happened here? something funny with the commits

@MightyPork @xuv With the release of FontAwesome 5.0, they wiped the master branch clean. Deleted all commit history and restarted from scratch. I happened to have created the fork the week before they did this. So Fork Awesome still has all Font Awesome history ;)

@xuv @MightyPork Looks like the old commit history is still present on the fa-4 branch.

@xuv

Thanks for this. I'm finally able to use an FA Mastodon icon on Libreture.com

👍

@kevinbeynon Great. That's also why I did it. :)

@xuv Yay; sorry I haven't had time to contribute to this, really — just landed at a busy point on my schedule....

@n8 No problem. Thanks for your help and knowledge sharing. It helped making decisions about the process.
