I’ve attempted a small CommonJS module and sample Alloy application to demonstrate how the Entypo Icon Font could be used in a cross-platform Appcelerator Titanium mobile app. This module would allow a developer to access the exhaustive 250+ (!) Entypo icons using Titanium’s native UI from two common TrueType font files included within an app. My sample app runs on both iOS and Android, although it is tailored and more completely tested on the iOS iPhone simulator.
- Dynamic styling through standard font properties and units of measure (color, size)
- Small file size (both font files together < 50 kB, contains 250+ icons, could be made even smaller by tailoring the font package to include only required icons)
- Gracefully scalable without noticable distortion
- Developer-friendly CC BY 3.0 license (Entypo pictograms by Daniel Bruce — www.entypo.com)
- Monochrome (only single color without shading, shadow, or other special effects)
- Ti.UI.Label not suitable for some common Titanium use cases (tab icons).

Lately, I’ve had an intens discussion on Twitter with @mattapperson / @appersonlabs, @tonylukasavage, @ricardoalcocer, @bencoding and @aaronksaunders on the possibilities and reasons for using Carbon in Titanium’s new MVC framework Alloy. This discussion then somewhat…
