Font Awesome to PNG

A site I’m working on uses Font Awesome. Font Awesome is an iconic font designed for use with Twitter’s Bootstrap and currently (at version 4.0.0) includes 370 icons. It is an easy to use and nice icon font. But I needed PNG files of the icons so I could use the same icons in a different system.

Enter Font Awesome to PNG. It is a Python script written by Michał Wojciechowski that allows you to do exactly that: extract the icons from the Font Awesome TTF file and save them as PNG files.

One example of how I used it to get a blue version of the comment icon:

./ --color "#27a4cd" --size 48 comment

The result is a nice PNG:

A big thank you to Michał and everyone that contributed to this code.
