Project History

Motivation (Original Rationale)

  • Originally created for use with vim-devicons vim plugin to add glyphs (icons) as labels for files based on the filetype extension or entire path. This project began as a part of the vim-devicons repo but soon it became apparent it did not belong tied to the vim plugin. I thought it may benefit others more as a separate project and allow a wider range of uses. This project started before I knew about Fontconfig provided solution, although a patched font still has some benefits over the Fontconfig.

  • project and repository previously known as 'nerd-filetype-glyphs-fonts-patcher' and 'font-nerd-icons'
