PIXI and fontawesome


Recommended Posts



I am aware that I can easily create an icon using fontawesome in pixi:

my html:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.3.0/css/font-awesome.min.css"> 

...and the javascript:

    var envelope = new PIXI.Text('\uf003', {        fill: '#ffffff',        font: '12px fontawesome'    });    stage.addChild(envelope);

problem with that is that it does not show the icon if the font from the css is not loaded fast enough (reloading with an empty cache does not show the icon).


So I thought about preloading the font using Font.js, which should work in general, but there are different fonts for different platforms and I think it is wrong to implement a browser-detection and load the correct font file (just load all files seems even worse). 


Has anyone experience with fontawesome and pixi on multiple platforms and can give some advice?
