I know I know we're supposed to use SVGs now. But for quick mockups where I can't be bothered - does anyone know of an icon webfont? I'm surprised Google Fonts doesn't already have one.

I've supported font awesome during initial v5 development and stick to the pro version. It supports SVGs, fonts, webfonts and comes with 4 styles plus brand icons. Since v5 I nearly miss no icons. And with purge CSS it's super easy to minify CSS size.

PS: super duper awesome powerful SVG styling via webpack and SCSS.

This should make using SVGs as images or wherever they are not stylable super easy. The webpack plugin is in package.json and webpack.mix.js on repo root. Took me a while to make it all work. But now it's so damn powerful! 🤯💙🚀🥳

IcoMoon have a font!

For hoard.fyi, I created my own icon font via Flaticon Collections though I think it may have needed pro membership that I have anyway, I think they also offer it for free (with attribution).
