🦆 My new font project now has a Git repository: codeberg.org/skyjake/smol-emoj

The test page shows that a quarter of Emojis are currently missing in Lagrange: gemini://skyjake.fi/smol-emoji



@jk I have been looking for a halfway-decent and good-coverage monochrome emoji font for a while (Gemini or not) and it looks like this will fit the bill nicely. Ta very much.

Though, how would you handle explicitly coloured characters (squares, circles, hearts, skins)?

@isoraqathedh Glad to hear it! This is a very new project and I hope to add many more symbols over the summer.

The B&W format means that the only way to do 'colors' is via different shadings and patterns, I suppose.

@jk If I may suggest:

- For coloured balls, squares &c. where the colour is the point, replace with a consistent texture, like how Nintendo did it with their colour balls in one of their games.
- For flags, explicitly don't support them.
- For skins, support the skin tone characters using more textures but don't re-render them into the preceding emoji.
