Updating Steemit logo in Font-Awesome

in steemit •  6 months ago

In a previous post I announced that I added the Steemit logo to Font-Awesome.

I have now updated the logo in Font-Awesome which makes you able to use the logo in links like the following example

and with larger font

How to use on a web page

Clone my forked version of Font-Awesome:

$ git clone git@github.com:bhjortsberg/Font-Awesome.git

Then copy fonts and css directories to the root directory for your web site.

To the <head> section on your page add:

<link href="/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

To add a list item with the Steem logo and a link to your Steemit page like in the picture above just do:

  <a href="https://steemit.com/@<steemit-username>">
  <i class="fa fa-steemit"></i> Steemit

Logo graphics

This time I created the logo by taking the svg data from the icon-svg__shape html element on steemit.com

and copied that data into Font-Awesome svg file using a text editor, opened that file in FontForge and scaled the logo to correct size.

So this logo should hopefully be identical to the official logo.

Have fun!

There seems a small error at the top of the logo. Your version has a straight line, yet the Steemit logo is curved.


May I suggest that if you change your version, you announce it through to Utopian.io. This work deserves more visibility. :)


Ah, I see that now. I'll look into that, I probably made a mistake when scaling in FontForge.
Thanks for the input!

I have now updated the logo according to the comment by @fknmayhem. The logo looks much better now. Thanks!
