A tool to create svg icon components. (vue 2.x) 中文





Some issues


Generate icon


# install global
npm install vue-svgicon -g
# install for project
npm install vue-svgicon --save-dev


# generate svg icon components
vsvg -s /path/to/svg/source -t /path/for/generated/components

Use as npm scripts

    "scripts": {
        "svg": "vsvg -s ./static/svg/src -t ./src/icons"
# bash
npm run svg

It will generate icons to the specified path.

Use programming api

import build from 'vue-svgicon/dist/lib/build'
    sourcePath: '';
    targetPath: '';
    ext?: 'js';
    es6?: false;
    tpl?: '';
    idSP?: '_';
    svgo?: 'Configuration file path' || {/* svgo config object */}

Custom icon content format

# specify template path
vsvg -s /path/to/svg/source -t /path/for/generated/components --tpl /path/for/icon-template

Default template is:

var icon = require('vue-svgicon')
  '${name}': {
    width: ${width},
    height: ${height},
    viewBox: ${viewBox},
    data: `${data}`

Custom icon file extension

vsvg -s /path/to/svg/source -t /path/for/generated/components --ext ts

Suport ES6 modules

vsvg -s /path/to/svg/source -t /path/for/generated/components --ext ts --es6

Custom svgo

vsvg -s /path/to/svg/source -t /path/for/generated/components --svgo svgo.js

Default svgo config

Use generated icon

First of all, your should write some css code for vue-svgicon in global scope. Recommended code is below:

/* recommended css code for vue-svgicon */
.svg-icon {
    display: inline-block;
    width: 16px;
    height: 16px;
    color: inherit;
    vertical-align: middle;
    fill: none;
    stroke: currentColor;

.svg-fill {
    fill: currentColor;
    stroke: none;

.svg-up {
    /* default */
    transform: rotate(0deg);

.svg-right {
    transform: rotate(90deg);

.svg-down {
    transform: rotate(180deg);

.svg-left {
    transform: rotate(-90deg);

you can use classPrefix option to set the default class name. The default prefix is svg

Use plugin

// main.js
import Vue from 'vue'
import App from './App.vue'
import SvgIcon from 'vue-svgicon'

// Default tag name is 'svgicon'
Vue.use(SvgIcon, {
    tagName: 'svgicon'

new Vue({
    el: '#app',
    render: h => h(App)

Use icon in component

<!-- App.vue -->
  <div id="app">
      <svgicon name="vue" width="200" height="200" color="#42b983 #35495e"></svgicon>

import 'icons/vue'

export default {
  name: 'app',
  data () {
    return {
      msg: 'Welcome to Your Vue.js App',

You can import all icons at once

import 'icons'



Custom component tag name. Default is svgicon

Vue.use(svgicon, {
    tagName: 'svgicon'
<svgicon name="vue"></svgicon>


your can use classPrefix option to set the default class name. The default prefix is svg

Vue.use(svgicon, {
    classPrefix: 'vue-svg'

It will be generated like this:

<svg version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 4 7" class="vue-svg-icon vue-svg-fill vue-svg-up">
<!-- svg code -->

defaultWidth / defaultHeight

Set default size if size props not set.

Vue.use(svgicon, {
    defaultWidth: '1em',
    defaultHeight: '1em'


Is use stroke style by default

Vue.use(svgicon, {
    isStroke: true


icon / name

icon name.

<svgicon icon="vue"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="vue"></svgicon>


The direction of icon.

<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" dir="left"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" dir="up"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" dir="right"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" dir="down"></svgicon>


Whether to fill the path/shape. Default value is true

<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" :fill="false"></svgicon>

You can use r-color to reverse the fill property

<!-- the first one is fill(default), the second use stroke -->
<svgicon name="clock" color="#8A99B2 r-#1C2330" width="100" height="100"></svgicon>
<!-- the first one is stoke, the second is fill -->
<svgicon name="clock" color="#8A99B2 r-#1C2330" width="100" height="100" :fill="false"></svgicon>

width / height

Specify the size of icon. Default value is 16px / 16px. Default unit is px

<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="arrow" width="10em" height="10em"></svgicon>


Scale icon size, it will overwrite width/height prop

<svgicon name="arrow" scale="10"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="arrow" scale="10" width="10em" height="10em"></svgicon>


Specify the color of icon. Default value is inherit.

<p style="color: darkorange">
    <svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50"></svgicon>
    <svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" color="red"></svgicon>
    <svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" color="green"></svgicon>
    <svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50" color="blue"></svgicon>

If the icon is mutil path/shape, you can use mutil color. It is defined in the order of path/shape.

<svgicon name="vue" width="100" height="100" color="#42b983 #35495e"></svgicon>

Also, you can use CSS to add colors.

<svgicon class="vue-icon" name="vue" width="100" height="100"></svgicon>
.vue-icon path[pid='0'] {
    fill: #42b983;

.vue-icon path[pid='1'] {
    fill: #35495e;

Use gradient

          <linearGradient id="gradient-1" x1="0" y1="0" x2="0" y2="1">
              <stop offset="5%"  stop-color="#57f0c2"/>
              <stop offset="95%" stop-color="#147d58"/>
          <linearGradient id="gradient-2" x1="0" y1="0" x2="0" y2="1">
              <stop offset="5%"  stop-color="#7295c2"/>
              <stop offset="95%" stop-color="#252e3d"/>
    <svgicon name="vue" width="15rem" height="15rem" color="url(#gradient-1) url(#gradient-2)"></svgicon>


use original color

<icon name="colorwheel" width="100" height="100" :original="true"></icon>
<!-- overwrite original color -->
<icon name="colorwheel" width="100" height="100" :original="true" color="_ black _ black _"></icon>

Multiple directory (Namespace)

You can use multiple directory to discriminate the icons which has the same name.

├── arrow.svg
├── sora
│   ├── arrow.svg
│   └── fit
│       └── arrow.svg
<svgicon name="arrow" width="50" height="50"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="sora/arrow" width="50" height="50"></svgicon>
<svgicon name="sora/fit/arrow" width="50" height="50"></svgicon>

Work on IE and old browser

This component doesn't work on IE because IE don't support innerHTML in SVGElement. You can use innersvg-polyfill to make it work. You can also use the polyfill provided by this component.

// in main.js first line
import 'vue-svgicon/dist/polyfill'

This polyfill is a wrapper of innersvg-polyfill.
