Greetings, People of the world!

I am Shashank, and I will be working with the EOS design system this summer. EOS-icons deliver a set of icons in an iconic font and also provides a few animated icons. For developers working on products like plugins or executable files, it is more efficient to be able to get a .PNG or .SVG of the icon in any colour or size. My project aims to solve this problem by creating an Icon Customization tool that enables a user to download icons in any colour and size with additional customisations as well as to add more animated icons to the current set.

So far, I have been trying to understand the codebase better as well as learning about the technologies and packages I will be using. I also created a couple of animated icons after learning how to animated SVG icons using SMIL. Community bonding period was incredible, and I am excited now that the coding officially begins.

I will be working on improving my projects UI with the ideas from the mentors and will be making the required changes in this first week of GSOC 2020.

For the next 12 weeks, I will be writing weekly blogs, keeping you all updated with my journey.

Thank you for reading!
