Can I store my Symbolset on GitHub?

Help » FAQ » Can I store my Symbolset on GitHub?

Private projects: Yes
Public projects: No

If you plan on using Symbolset, or any licenced fonts, in your public GitHub project remember to add them to your .gitignore file to prevent others from freely downloading them.

This is what a .gitignore typically looks like at Symbolset.

.DS_Store
public/webfonts/*

It’s important to do this step before you commit the files though. Git keeps a record of everything, and digging though past commits will turn up the files even if they are removed at a later date. It’s still possible to fix if you’ve accidentally leaked your fonts already though. Github wrote an exellent article on removing sensitive data from your git repo. To play it safe you can alternatively use Symbolset hosting in your public projects and not have to worry about handling font files at all.
