    Emoji Favicon Toolkit - Set your favicon to emoji using canvas & cache as /favicon.ico with service workers

    I usually just throw emoji favicon toolkit[1] at this problem and subset to a random rotation of relevant emoji. Client-side-generated favicons are possible with canvas.

  • pwa-asset-generator

    Automates PWA asset generation and image declaration. Automatically generates icon and splash screen images, favicons and mstile images. Updates manifest.json and index.html files with the generated images according to Web App Manifest specs and Apple Human Interface guidelines.

    Thank you for the article. It is certainly alluring to reduce the number of generated images linked in the in PWA apps.

    I use https://github.com/onderceylan/pwa-asset-generator to generate assets for PWA's(have left a message on this repo to read your article!)
