Hey! I’ve been back for a while and posted everywhere else about it but forgot the blog >∆∆<.
Here’s a roundup of the last few weeks:
Mutant Standard 0.2.0 + Orxporter
I have some pretty awesome news. Orxporter (the next generation of the script that I use to batch recolour, rename and export emoji) is finally finished enough that I can use it. So the next release of Mutant Standard will be 0.2.0 and will include things like:
– Codepoint releases!
– Better shortcode releases! (better quality releases of the versions you are already used to)
– I will start outlining Mutant Standard’s encoding plans in Unicode’s PUA!
– Some more new emoji!
Orxporter will eventually be available as open source so anyone who can use a CLI can produce emoji like I do~
Thanks very much to kiilas for developing this. Mutant Standard would not be where it is without it. 💚
You can finally make one-time donations via PayPal:
People often ask me what I plan on doing for emoji, so I realised it would probably be a good idea to set something up where my production notes and lists are open to the public so anyone can really get a sense for what I’m thinking about and where I plan on going with things.
I’ve just done that (well, working on it right now) – I’ve made a public Trello at https://trello.com/mutantstandard.
I’m currently in the process of offloading most/all of my notes onto the service (and getting used to how Trello works a bit) so it’s not all there right now. But once this is all set up, this will become my new notes system for the project full-time, so you will be able to get a totally up-to-date view of what’s going on with the project at any time!
