This gem is a simple rebundling of the contents of font-awesome:
In a format suitable for use with the Rails asset pipeline.
add this to your gemfile:
and now in your application.css you can include the css file like so:
*= require 'font-awesome'
I'm not a fan of randomly grabbing files and adding them to my project - later on its always a pain when you need to figure out which version you're using and if there is a newer one... so I'm going to do that work for you. You get to use this gem with a well-defined version number, and I'll periodically update it with new stuff from the mainline project. You'll know what version you're using and what the differences are.
note on version 0.2.0 - FontAwesome now includes scss and sass files, but when I used them instead of the plain ol css file included in the project, it wanted some compass libraries. I'm a fan of compass, but including an entire tool like that in order to generate a @font_face tag seems a little much... I don't want this gem to require compass for such a trivial thing, so we are staying on the vanilla css file for now.

Aditya Sanghi pulled it in and I wasn't watching. Will make sure that doesn't happen again. 0.4.0 05e5e5b Pullup request to 2.0 release of font-awesome
- Needs s simple mechanism to test that the assets provided are available on the path expected.
- I think the css should be an scss so we can compile to the expected asset path
