FontAwesome - Update to latest version

Frontend
On our radar

Would be nice if we could get access to the latest icons

Yes and no.

Yes more icons is nice, but it needs to get an overhaul, mostly because one does not use 500icons in the applications. So the css and ttf is getting to big and is just 90% deadweight.

Especially for first-time access it adds up.

Very true. Perhaps OutSystems has some stats on which icons are actually used or most used and only need implement those.

The more I think about it now it does need a rethink to optimise for usage and performance.

it would be great to have some plugin where we can choose the icons we are allowed to use and those are generated with the modules..

this will benefit also the consistency of the applications.

FontAwesome has much more useful icons then the RichWidgets/Icon. Could you please update this so we can have more choice? Thanks.

While one can make the argument that font based icons add dead weight, we're already using font awesome 4.3. With no good alternatives such as SVG icons in Outsystems, it makes sense to update FA to 4.7 at least. I'm not holding my breath for a svg based solution anytime soon so this would at least help bridge this gap for a while.
