I’d like to publish this (actually link shared) notebook, containing icons used by/on Observable: https://observablehq.com/d/b5967b101a846b2d
Note that this notebook is based on the output of https://observablehq.com/@nikita-sharov/observable-icons (stored as JSON), taken down a while ago (no response so far):
Should you (Observable team) reconsider this violation, restore the latter and allow publication of the former notebook, I’d like to ask you in advance for permission to publish a notebook comparing Observable, Feather and Github icons, as a part of the series: https://observablehq.com/collection/@nikita-sharov/icons
A positive response might
- simplify reuse of icons on Observable (e.g. documenting / referencing Observable UI elements in notebooks);
- highlight the visual congruence / similarities between the icons, as symbols with meaning;
- highlight some visual (e.g. line-caps / line-joins / scaling issues) and symbolic / metaphoric inconsistencies in Observable’s icon usage (e.g. using a git-branch icon to illustrate a git-fork, which should look like, well, a
tablemeat fork, and not like a byroad, branching away from the main road).
