Learning Task Edit

  • First explore the concept of Icon Fonts that bundle a large set of icons in single files to reduce loading time. Furthermore these fonts are in general loaded from Content Delivery Networks (CDN). CDNs make it easy to use fonts like Font Awesome.
  • Learn to store the SVG Images in a Javascript object/hash as string to use them in your AppLSAC.
  • See JSON3D4Aframe for application in buttons and learn about the integration in WebApps in W3C-tutorial about icons[1].
