Remember to first copy your font file to the
/resources directory at the root of your project
my_icon = NSMutableAttributedString.alloc.initWithString("\uf00e") my_icon.addAttribute(NSFontAttributeName, value: NSFont.fontWithName("github-octicons",size:30), range: NSMakeRange(0, 1))
The string in
initWithString will be the unicode value of the char that represents the icon you want. Most font icons offer a CSS file and you can get these values from there. Sometimes the font website will give you the unicode value, as octicons.github.com/ does when you select an icon.
I've tested on a Mac app, but it should work the same on a iOS app
