how to create a font package?

Postby tessus » Wed May 09, 2018 6:11 am

I want to create a LaTeX package for the ForkAwesome font.

There's a project on github to create a package for the FontAwesome font which I could most likely adjust to work for ForkAwesome as well.

However, I'm a bit puzzled by how the mapping was created.

One line from the mapping in the code:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. "_620" : "percent", #f295

The percent symbol/icon has the unicode point f295 (and that's only a comment anyway), but what has _620 to do with that?

Unfortunately the owner of that project seems to have abandoned it and doesn't reply to questions on the issue tracker.

So what is the correct way to create a Latex package that makes use of a certain font?
Are there any guides or How-Tos available?
