Sorry, I'm back.

The reason I use twemoji-color-font is for its black and white glyphs as libass/mpv doesn't support color emoji. Upstream didn't have a release for Unicode 14 by then so I built from source with this (it does now).

For some reason (probably an issue with recent dependencies, maybe fonttools/fontforge?) since then the B&W fonts built from this package are very tiny in mpv, but the upstream release's ttf file from Oct 2022 has the correct size in mpv. So I'm using that instead.

I'm willing to maintain this package indefinitely though.

I get this error trying to build this package. Is this an error with this package or with inkscape?

Users should be aware that this package's build involves converting its 3.6K+ graphics assets between file formats, and it takes a rather incredible amount of time.

It may be wise to choose to use a different package (namely, the non-git version). In lieu of any progress indicator, build progress can be monitored by watching the number of files in ~/.cache/yay/twemoji-color-font/{build/{staging,svg-color,assets/twemoji-svg}

On a 4-core i5 with an SSD, build takes ≈45 minutes.
