Developing Icon Font Generator for Sketch, any feature request?

over 2 years ago from , Full-Stack Developer

Hi Guys,

Most of the time my designer fella doesn't use icon-fonts like material icons, nucleo or font awesome, that's why I always have to export about 50+ icons, and almost write 5 lines of css for each icon. I'm tired of exporting icons all the time, enough with this shit. Right now I'm developing a plugin for this purpose currently for Sketch but if I finish it I can port it to Framer X as well.

Now here's the idea, you the designer, import icons to your sketch file, name it with icon-blabla and plugin searches every layers or group starting with icon- then it exports this icons and creates an icon-font (like fontastic.me). It will work with a single click.

So is there anyone want to recommend something? do you need anything for it, I would like to know your use cases and needings.

    I would love for this to make an SVG sprite instead, with the layer name as ID!

    I use fontastic, actually, and the must-have features are:

    • being able to name the individual icons
    • changing prefix for the css
    • generating a cheatsheet

    nice to have

    • switch between characters /pua
