WordPress has built-in dashicon icons. What might be the right direction for CP?
- Do we stick with dashicons as is?
- Do we design custom icons but keep the names for compatibility?
- Do we switch to FontAwesome?
- Do we design completely custom icons to replace dashicons (classicons)?
Personally, I think FontAwesome integration would be best option - making FontAwesome one of the included libraries for other themes/plugins to enqueue. Many themes/plugins enqueue their own FontAwesome already, this would eliminate the need for additional libraries and icons.
Just wanted to find out what others think, before posting something in petitions. This is for later versions, but I’m curious to see what others think. Maybe this would be part of a greater effort to give CP it’s own UI.
