Feature Request

A feature request: upgrade support to the "free" version of Font Awesome 5.x. Thanks for the skin... it is great.

Love to upgrade, but this will require some work. What is at issue, open source version vs pro (paid) and the icons available to the open source. Some changed, some did not, some have a different call to render them.

Maybe better to stick with Fork-Awesome?:

We implemented a temporary fix for this by creating a customizations folder in the MW directory, then placing the FontAwesome5 basic (free) set items we downloaded there, then added the following workaround in LocalSettings.php:

Load Theme Customizations

$wgResourceModules['ourtheme-customizations'] = array(
'styles' => "/fontawesome-5-8-2/css/all.css", // Stylesheet to be loaded in all skins
'scripts' => "", // Script file to be loaded in all skins
'localBasePath' => "$IP/customizations/",
'remoteBasePath' => "$wgScriptPath/customizations/"
function efCustomBeforePageDisplay( &$out, &$skin ) {
$out->addModules( array( 'ourtheme-customizations' ) );

Then in the CSS:

#yourElement {
content: "\f0f3";
font-family: "Font Awesome\ 5 Free";

Not an ideal way to do it but it gets the job done as a temporary workaround. :)
