Changing the Glyphish Folder

To change the location of your Glyphish folder (if it has been moved), or to update it, navigate to "Glyphish Gallery" and then "Preferences...".

Or, you can use the shortcut ⌘..

You will then get this preferences window:

On clicking "Pick", a popup file browser will then let you select the folder which you would like to use. The gallery will then reload with the contents of the new folder.

Creating Metadata

To edit or add to the master metadata, head on over to the metadata repository.

To create your own personal metadata, follow these simple steps:

  1. Create a new JSON file, such as custom.json.
  2. Open the JSON file in your favorite editor.
  3. Create an associative array, and use the icon name(s) as the key(s) (without the extension).
  // etc.

4. Add the tags (in quotes) in the value (array) part of the JSON.

    "circular arrow",
    // etc.
    "try again",
    "circular arrow",
    // etc.
  // etc.

5. Go to JSONLint and make sure that your metadata is valid JSON (or else Glyphish Gallery will NOT be able to process it!).

6. If it passes inspection, save the file and import the metadata.

Importing Metadata

To import your own metadata .JSON file, you must first make sure that you have the correct [metadata format](#creating metadata).

After you have inserted all of your metadata, and saved the .JSON file in an easily accessible location, navigate to "Metadata" and then "Import".

Or use the shortcut ⌘I.

You'll then see this window:

From here, drag and drop your .JSON file onto the dropzone. The file will then be added!

Deleting Imported Metadata

To import your imported metadata, navigate to "Metadata" and then "Manage"

Or use the shortcut ⇧⌘M.

You'll then see this window:

Select a JSON file, and press your delete key to remove it.

Because these files are stored locally, you will need to import them onto different computers, if you use Glyphish on different machines. In the future, it is possible that they're will be an option to choose a folder for your Glyphish metadata files, and you could create a folder in Dropbox, and keep them synced.

For Developers

Upon cloning/downloading the project, make sure you run pod install in order to install all of the pods, and to grab the latest metadata!
