Removing Local Font Awesome Files

history edit

Jekyll, Font Awesome

Jekyll Now didn’t include support for Font Awesome icons so I ha(a?)cked them in by copying the method used by Haacked.

This requires a local copy of the font files and some @font-face configuration in the css:

This works brilliantly for that version of Font Awesome but goes wrong when you then try and reference an icon from a newer version.

A whole range of methods are suggested on the Font Awesome Get Started page and I’m using a variation of the first method suggested by referencing the BootstrapCDN css within my style.scss file.

@import url("//");

I’m not sure an external reference is better per se but it works for now.
