General Usage

Using Open Iconic's SVGs

We like SVGs and we think they're the way to display icons on the web. Since Open Iconic are just basic SVGs, we suggest you display them like you would any other image (don't forget the alt attribute).

<img src="/open-iconic/svg/icon-name.svg" alt="icon name">

Using Open Iconic's SVG Sprite

Open Iconic also comes in a SVG sprite which allows you to display all the icons in the set with a single request. It's like an icon font, without being a hack.

Adding an icon from an SVG sprite is a little different than what you're used to, but it's still a piece of cake. Tip: To make your icons easily style able, we suggest adding a general class to the <svg> tag and a unique class name for each different icon in the <use> tag.

<svg class="icon">
  <use xlink:href="open-iconic.svg#account-login" class="icon-account-login"></use>
</svg>

Sizing icons only needs basic CSS. All the icons are in a square format, so just set the <svg> tag with equal width and height dimensions.

.icon {
  width: 16px;
  height: 16px;
}

Coloring icons is even easier. All you need to do is set the fill rule on the <use> tag.

.icon-account-login {
  fill: #f00;
}
