Fontello - icon font scissors
This tool lets you combine icon webfonts for your own project. With fontello you can:
- shrink glyph collections, minimizing font size
- merge symbols from several fonts into a single file
- access large sets of professional-grade open source icons
Now it's trivial to make a custom icon webfont, exactly for your needs. First, select the icons you like. Then update glyph codes (optional), and download your webfont bundle. We generate everything you need, ready for publishing on your website!
- Desktop is fully supported. IE6-7 requires alternate CSS.
- Mobiles - all modern systems work without problems. There are limits on very old androids and rare browsers. Also, Windows Mobile IE9 sucks, as IE usually does :) . See details.
Fontello allows easy scripting, to implement different convenient features:
- Open site from command line, with your configuration, and import edited project
- Makefile example. That's a live working code, used for development of fontello itself.
- Writing website plugins, to import/export icons via admin panel.
When more examples available, those will be added here.

fontello-cliis for you :)
