Hello friends! Whenever I need web icons, I'd lazily just pull in all of font awesome. But now I want a much lighter payload and just load the icon(s) my site actually uses. What's a good way to do that?

@timotheus Funny that I see this a day after I post this: The code is in Emacs Lisp, you can you do that in any language you like.

@timotheus This thread discusses a variety of approaches to this problem: (I haven't used any of these myself, so I can't vouch for which ones work best, but hopefully something in there is useful for you!)

@lavaturtle @timotheus It's not hard to make your own icon font. That's what I usually do.
