Twemoji is a great way to make emoji's on your website independent of system and browser. But alas, it requires JavaScript...

FontAwesome provides thousands of icons, but you probably only use a few dozen on your website. Instead of loading all of them as a webfont, you could use SVG sprites.

This library is a simple helper that:

  • dumps a refined set of SVG symbols at the end of your page.
