This plugin allows to use Evil Icons in your project with Grunt.

Sponsored by Evil Martians

Getting Started

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-evil-icons --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "evil_icons" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named evil_icons to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  evil_icons: {
    dist: {
      files: {
        "build/index.html": "src/index.html"

Using icons

Once you have added the evil_icons section to your Gruntfile, you can use the icons in your html with the icon tag:

<icon name="ei-archive" />
<icon name="ei-chart" size="s" />
<icon name="ei-check" size="m" />
<icon name="ei-cart" size="l" class="foo" />

The sprite will be added to your html automatically, and the icon tags will be replaced with actual SVG code.

The only thing you have to add to your code explicitly is the stylesheet:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="./node_modules/grunt-evil-icons/node_modules/assets/evil-icons.css">
