Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

File Icon Images

A collection of file type/extension SVG icons, available free for use in your applications.

  • Please post feedback or issues.
  • I pay to license several of the icons used in these sets. Donations are appreciated.
  • 💡 If you have an idea, such as new icon requests, additional collections/designs, and/or are willing to contribute a library/design, please let me know! My time is limited, but I will get to it eventually.
  • If you use these icons to create something cool, tell me about it!

Icon Sets

Currently, there are three icon sets in the dist/icons directory:

Next release:

  • Over 500 new icons
  • A new set for dark backgrounds (preview)
  • CDNJS hosting

Once that is released, I'd like to focus on a webfont, ideally where you can create your own file icons with stacking, just like Font Awesome.



npm install file-icon-vectors


bower install file-icon-vectors

🚨 NB! Because I didn't use semver, the current release is not available from Bower. It will be corrected with the next release.


composer require dmhendricks/file-icon-vectors

(I know, it doesn't below on Packagist, but 15% of my downloads are coming from there, so some people must prefer it.)

Quick Start

To display a file icon, simply link to one or all of the icon set CSS files in the css directory:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/file-icon-classic.min.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/file-icon-square-o.min.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/file-icon-vivid.min.css" />

<!-- Alternatively, you can load all sets: -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/file-icon-vectors.min.css" />

CDN: jsDelivr

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

<!-- Alternatively, you can load all sets: -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

Combining Files

jsDelivr allows you to combine multiple files. Below is an example of linking both the Vivid and Square Outline sets with one URI:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//,npm/file-icon-vectors@1.0.0/dist/file-icon-square-o.min.css" />

This will become more beneficial with future releases that contain supplementary packs, web fonts, etc.

CDN: unpkg

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

<!-- Alternatively, you can load all sets: -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

CDN: GitHack

Supports branches as endpoints (such as master).

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

<!-- Alternatively, you can load all sets: -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />


If you're using WordPress, you can load the icons by adding the following line to your theme's functions.php file:

wp_enqueue_style( 'file-icon-vectors', '', null, null );


Each set has its own CSS prefix:

  • cla - Classic
  • viv - Vivid
  • sqo - Square Outline

The format for CSS classes is fiv-[prefix]-[extension]:

<span class="fiv-cla fiv-icon-ppt"></span>
<span class="fiv-cla fiv-icon-xls"></span>
<span class="fiv-viv fiv-icon-pdf"></span>
<span class="fiv-viv fiv-icon-wav"></span>
<span class="fiv-sqo fiv-icon-doc"></span>

If you want to override the size of the icons, you can do so with CSS:

   .fiv-cla, .fiv-viv, .fiv-sqo { font-size: 3em; }

Alternatively, you may also use .fiv-size-md, .fiv-size-lg and .fiv-size-xl to modify the icon sizes:

<span class="fiv-viv fiv-icon-pdf fiv-size-lg"></span>

Catalog JSON

Each icon set has a catalog.json file that includes all icons included in the library. You can optionally use this to check for files that exist, and where missing, set an alternate icon.

For example, reads this file to dynamically create the icon lists for both release and development versions.

Generic icons include blank.svg, folder.svg, image.svg.

🚨 BREAKING CHANGE: I will be removing the generic folder.svg from each collection in favor of the upcoming "Extra" set. Follow this repo if you'd like to be notified when that happens.

Special Thanks

Even though I'm paying for them, thanks also to Adobe, The Noun Project, FlatIcon, Icons8 and iconscout for providing great tools and services. 👍 😄
