Lots of communities, websites, and tools need icons for operation. There are a lot of free icons to be had but getting them in a coherent style is often a challenge. IconGenerator was built to solve this. It’s not super fancy or professional usage, more like a quick-and-easy solution.
The tech stack is pretty standard: PHP, JQuery, and stuff. It works by constructing a canvas with FontAwesome, applying styling according to the user's preferences, and downloading it as a png.
Settings can be saved via cookies or reset to defaults and the site keeps track of views and downloads across different icons. It also provides a very basic search to help people to find what they are looking for.
