Yep there's an icon named style.

I don't saw it 😨. I think three solutions to solve this problem:

  1. Update the name of style method. This option breaks retro compatibility with material_icon helper.
  2. Change the name of the icon in the gem. It can be confused, and I need to notify it in README.
  3. Create a new method called icon and don't use method_missing to get the name of the icon. This solution breaks retro compatibility, but with an icon method I prevent similar future problems.

I like the first and third solution; I will think it some time. Do you suggest another solution?

Thanks for report the issue!

If you want to still use method_missing, you can distinguish when you are trying to use style icon (no parameters) or style method (using parameters).

Thanks, @pikislabis. I like your solution, and I will implement it in the gem.

However, I think I will create an icon method for a future release. In this case, style method receives parameters, but another cases like flip_vertical could be a problem.
