Support generated IDs to avoid collisions in HTML #27

Consider this example:

There is a symbol with the ID email (email.svg) and an input field with the same ID and a connected label (<label for="email">).

Displaying the SVG works, but the label breaks in this example.

This could be solved by adding an option which would allow a custom function to generated the ID. For most projects it should be sufficient to provide a prefix like icon- to solve most conflicts. For more complex projects providing a generated UUID should also work.

I would be happy to create a PR if you like the idea :)

👍 Awesome enhancement.

I'm thinking the loader should accept a symbolId function which will be passed the complete filepath, for maximum flexibility determining what the id for each symbol in the sprite should be.

For your example the user config could be something like:

  loader: 'svg-symbol-sprite-loader',
  options: {
    // Use filename as symbol id prefixed with icon- to prevent DOM id collisions
    symbolId: filePath => `icon-${path.basename(filePath, '.svg')}`

For repo context, I think the option just needs to be passed from loader.js into sprite-store.js at the addSVG call.

A PR would be great, thanks 🎉 (I won't be online for 8 days after midweek so if you don't hear back please be patient)

Thanks again for the suggestion 👍
