Removing Local Font Awesome Files
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.
I’m not sure an external reference is better per se but it works for now.
