rofi xclip (default, could be changed through environment variable).

Environment variables

Use the following variables to modify the directory (in case of linking the executable to other folder, ie. /usr/local/bin). Also to change the default command for copying.

# Set to the directory where the repository is forked.
export ROFI_FA_ICON_DIR="foo/bar"
# Set to the binary for copying
export ROFI_FA_ICON_BIN='wl-copy'


It works on a list generated with the python script in this repo taking the awesome yaml of the font-awesome github repository into input. As a consequence, at the moment, only the characters supported by font-awesome is supported by this script. If you made a better list, pull it there :).
