We got to stop doing this in our spare time
I know right! By the way, thanks for checking out this article. (I'm the Microsoft designer who built the Icon Library) It was a great opportunity for me to share my little side project to the world!
Haha nice, it seems you had a good time doing it. I was a bit grumpy when I read it and thought why the hell does a company of that size need somebody to do a project that big in their spare time. I take it back though.
No worries, and yeah I did this mostly for my own interest and learning. This project was actually done 2 years ago, and back then there wasn't a unified team building designer tools like icon libraries. Now we have an official internal icon library built by a dedicated tooling team, but many designers still prefer my tool because of some features that are not available in the official one (e.g. tagging, download svg, upload svg, double click to copy etc.)
Jesus lol - well, that's the corporate world for ya. They'll take your soul and leave you hanging on the high five.
Is figma better than Ligma?
Wait a sec... Microsoft's design language is called fabric? lol.
Our new design language is called Fluent, but when I built this 2 years ago the system we used was Fabric.
