In Liferay Portal 7.2, an attempt to remove FontAwesome from Liferay Portal was frustrated because a lot of existing code was still relying on old markup and usage of those icon fonts.
This library greatly contribute to the standard page size and its removal will bring a big performance improvement to Liferay Portal.
The goal of this epic is to:
- Identify current usages of FontAwesome
- Create custom application icons that might be missing
- Create a minimal set of icons necessary to keep a minimal backwards compatibility
- Document the necessary steps to actually bring back the icon fonts for full backwards compatibility
