Font icons are awesome. They are the solution for every web designer’s nightmare and given the extra pixel densities in apps, even more for us (Titanium) developers. I use them a lot and just started on another project for which I wanted to use the new 4.x edition. But of course these all come with new names (fa-*) and since I’m lazy…. I wrote a simple script.

The FontAwesomeJS script downloads and parses the variables straight from the Font Awesome repository and generates a CommonJS module exposing all icon unicodes. A simple drag and drop of this file and the FontAwesome.otf is all it takes from now on to have an ever up-to-date set of icons at your disposal.

Just go to and follow the instructions.
