  • I love using graphic symbols in web pages, so when I saw the relatively new Glyphicon package by Jan Kovarik, I knew they would play a role in our work in the worldoutline.
    • <%glyphicon.view (iconname)%>
  • There are 350 of them. The small low-res icons are free to use, but the bigger higher-resolution ones cost money to license. They're not expensive and they're absolutely beautiful. The kind of work we should reward by showering it with money.
    • <%glyphicon.view ("beer")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("beer")%>
    • <%glyphicon.view ("dog")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("dog")%>
    • <%glyphicon.view ("heart")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("heart")%>
    • <%glyphicon.view ("keyboardWireless")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("keyboardWireless")%>
    • <%glyphicon.view ("screenshot")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("screenshot")%>
    • <%glyphicon.view ("warningSign")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("warningSign")%>
    • The img elements are class woGlyphiconImage, so you can control the styling of the images.
    • If you want to specify alt text for the image, add a second optional parameter, with the text.
    • <%glyphicon.view ("beer", "Image of a beer stein.")%> -- <%glyphicon.view ("beer", "Image of a beer stein.")%>
    • Here's a page that shows all the glyphicons.
    • worldOutlineSuite.utilities.buildGlyphiconOpml
    • worldOutlineSuite.utilities.loadGlyphIconTable
