Notes on Contributing
I recommend using Inkscape for editing and exporting from the .SVG to take advantage of Inkscape's batch export, as all the icons have unique ID's that Inkscape uses to create file names.
Maki follows these design principles:
- Simple, clear, recognizable
- Three sizes: 12/18/24 px
- Single color, with 1px 30% transparent white outline.
- Based upon internationally recognized symbols when appropriate. Good sources for symbol precedents include AIGA symbols, OSM's icon set SBBJ SVG Map Icons and the Noun Project.

If you decide to modify
src/maki-icons.svg in order to add an icon to the set, before submitting a pull request, make sure you clear user-specific settings from the SVG with:
sed -i 's/\ *inkscape:export-filename=".*"//g' maki-icons.svg on Linux or
sed -i "" -e 's/\ *inkscape:export-filename=".*"//g' maki-icons.svg on OSX.
It isn't necessary, but if you want to be an over-acheiver, you can also update the website with your new icon by following these instructions
