Building

To checkout source:

git clone git://github.com/sagargp/trollicons.git

Installing depedencies:

bundle install

Using Rake:

You may have to install rake.

(sudo) gem install rake bundle

If that doesn't work you may have to install ruby, which is out of this readme's scope.

Type rake -T to see available tasks.

Adding new Icons

Icons are located in the Icons directory. They're named in the format

{Optional Namespace}/{Icon Name}-{alias1}-{alias2}-{aliasn}.png

So Troll/Troll-troll-problem-problem?.png would compile to

Name: Troll - Troll
Aliases: [troll] [problem] [problem?]

If your package produces directories that should not be distributed, begin the directory name with a -, like -trollicons-ichat.

Adding support for another IM Client

Create a new task in the Rakefile.
