I hijacked the facebook icon but I’m pretty sure you can just add more instead of hijacking. The way it works is that in .../content/themes/casper-2.8.0/partials/icons there’s a list of svg files doing inline drawing per w3.org specification. Then I found the correct inline path from codepen. Given enough fine-tuning (because of view box), I found that

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="48 58 400 400"><path d="M256 70.7c-102.6 0-185.9 83.2-185.9 185.9 0 82.1 53.3 151.8 127.1 176.4 9    .3 1.7 12.3-4 12.3-8.9V389.4c-51.7 11.3-62.5-21.9-62.5-21.9 -8.4-21.5-20.6-27.2-20.6-27.2 -16.9-11.5 1.3-11.3 1.3-11.3 18.7 1.3 28.5 19.2 28.5 19.    2 16.6 28.4 43.5 20.2 54.1 15.4 1.7-12 6.5-20.2 11.8-24.9 -41.3-4.7-84.7-20.6-84.7-91.9 0-20.3 7.3-36.9 19.2-49.9 -1.9-4.7-8.3-23.6 1.8-49.2 0 0 1    5.6-5 51.1 19.1 14.8-4.1 30.7-6.2 46.5-6.3 15.8 0.1 31.7 2.1 46.6 6.3 35.5-24 51.1-19.1 51.1-19.1 10.1 25.6 3.8 44.5 1.8 49.2 11.9 13 19.1 29.6 19    .1 49.9 0 71.4-43.5 87.1-84.9 91.7 6.7 5.8 12.8 17.1 12.8 34.4 0 24.9 0 44.9 0 51 0 4.9 3 10.7 12.4 8.9 73.8-24.6 127-94.3 127-176.4C441.9 153.9 3    58.6 70.7 256 70.7z"/></svg>

Hmm… I did what you said, but the icon seems to be not looking like Github at all. Look over at https://mlfromscratch.com for a live view

EDIT: I looked at the CodePen that you linked and snatched for the GitHub svg, and that seems to be working now. Thanks for sharing. Here is the code I copy-pasted that worked
