WebDev-Icons Font

WebDev-Icons

A font to iconify a Webdevelopers Skills currently including 124 plain, monochrome Icons in Version 1.0. Including Programming Languages, Frameworks, Workflow Tools, Programs/IDE´s etc.

There are currently no Plans to include alternativ Versions and/or to integrate full colored Versions. There are other Alternatives for that.

Alternatives

There is a Bunch of pretty awesome Font Libraries that I can really recommend.

Problem is: None of them included all the Icons I needed for my personal Portfolio so I created my own.

If you´re looking for more Font Libraries that also include different Versions for some of the Icons or are even multi-colored, you should take a look at those Libs:

How to Use WebDev-Icons on your Website

The naming conventions of WebDev-Icons are plain and simple:

  • all Icons are prefixed with webdev-.
  • Look up the Icon names in /src/PNG to see the Icons and find out their respective names.
  • Example: You need to embed a "Jira" Icon. Check the above mentioned directory and you´ll find a file named jira.png. So the complete name for the icon class would be webdev-jira

Using the Icon Font

  • Upload webdev-icons.css (/dist/webdev-icons.css) and fonts Folder (/dist/fonts) to your Site.
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="webdev-git.css">

Adjust paths in your webdev-git.css if required.

  • Add the respective icon using an <i>-Tag
<!--  Example using Github-Icon -->
<i class="webdev-github"></i>

<!--
    Consider improving accessibility!
    In case you´re using e.g. Bootstrap you should use Icons this way:
-->
<i class="webdev-github">
    <span class="sr-only">Git</span>
</i>

Using SVG Icons

- Notice: This doesn´t really work yet, please be patient and wait for the next update.
+ Thank you!
  • Copy and paste the SVG Code (open the File with a Text-Editor) of the Icon you´ll want to integrate (from the /src/SVG Folder)
<!--  Example using Github-Icon -->
<svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="32" height="32" viewBox="0 0 32 32">
<title>github</title>

How to Use WebDev-Icons in Documents / Illustrator etc

Take a look at the dist Folder. Install the .ttf-Font locally for any of the upcoming cases.
