Introducing fontawesomefx-examples project

Some people asked me about a FontAwesomeFX tutorial.
Now I started a new project: fontawesomefx-examples at GitHub!

basic_1

The examples will always reflect the latest version of FontAwesomeFX (currently 8.12 which can be loaded from Bintray) and I am going to extend it soon to show all stuff which provided by the lib.

FontAwesomeFX 8.10: The artefacts act

Recently I created a demo an wanted to use just one FontAwesome icon and I notices that I need to add the whole ~600KB package for that. Clearly the package size is driven by the all the contained True Type Font files:

de.jensd:fontawesomefx-fontawesomefx:8.9 571 KB

So I thought about split the full package into separated artifacts per icon font: smaller footprint and easier to update (also the package versioning reflects the icon font version)

Coming with FontAwesomeFX 8.10

de.jensd:fontawesomefx-fontawesome:4.5.0 115.7 KB
de.jensd:fontawesomefx-materialdesignfont:1.4.57 246.4 KB
de.jensd:fontawesomefx-materialicons:2.1 92.2 KB
de.jensd:fontawesomefx-octicons:3.3.0 29.9 KB
de.jensd:fontawesomefx-weathericons:2.0 2.0 KB

PLUS:

de.jensd:fontawesomefx-common:8.10 13.4 KB

and optional:

de.jensd:fontawesomefx-controls:8.10 3.4 KB

Usage

E.g. to use WeatherIcons in your app you just have to add

repositories {
 jcenter()
}

dependencies {
 compile 'de.jensd:fontawesomefx-weathericons:2.0'
}

to your build.gradle and you are done with 16KB (font-pack + common) additional footprint.

wathericonsdemo

You can run contained demo by calling: de.jensd.fx.glyphs.weathericons.demo.WeatherIconsDemoApp

Please give it a try and feed me back if it works!

Next steps are:

  • rename it from FontAwesomeFX to e.g. IconsFX (in respect to the other supportet icon fonts) and
  • focus on Java9 and JigSaw….
