Magento 2 base theme uses icon fonts which seem fairly brittle and, at least in my view, have become eclipsed by SVG icons. I would like to add a Gulp task to compile SVGs into a sprite (like this: https://github.com/jkphl/gulp-svg-sprite). Is there a way to avoid creating my own gulpfile.js and adding the extra step to the deployment process? I would like to integrate with the snowdog/frontools/gulpfile.js which is handling the SCSS compilation but I'm not seeing a way to do that.
Have you considered submitting a Feature Request / Improvement in the Forums?
Happy new year!
I'm not going to add project specific customizations to Frontools, it's up to you how to customize them.
