Iconify monorepo

This repository is a big monorepo that contains several icon components for various frameworks and several packages that are reused by all those components.

Iconify icon components

Iconify icon components are not just yet another set of icon components. Unlike other icon components, Iconify icon components do not include icon data. They load icon data on demand from Iconify API.

Iconify API provides data for over 100,000 icons! API is hosted on publicly available servers, spread out geographically to make sure visitors from all over the world have the fastest possible connection with redundancies in place to make sure it is always online.

Why is API needed?

When you use an icon font, each visitor loads an entire font, even if your page only uses a few icons. This is a major downside of using icon fonts. That limits developers to one or two fonts or icon sets.

If you are using typical icon set that is not a font, you still need to bundle all icons used in your application, even ones that visitor does not need.

Unlike icon fonts and components for various icon sets, Iconify icon components dynamically load icon data from Iconify API whenever it is needed.

This makes it possible to have an unlimited choice of icons!

Available packages

There are several Iconify components included in this repository:

  • Browser tests - unit tests for SVG framework. Run npm run build to build it. Open test.html in browser (requires HTTP server).

Legacy packages

Unfortunately Lerna does not support several versions of the same package. Because of that, some packages were moved from "packages" to "archive". This applies only to packages that were replaced by newer packages that aren't backwards compatible (and packages that rely on those packages).

Legacy packages:

  • React with API - React component with API support. It has been merged with react package in newer version.
  • React - React component without API support. Component without API support does not make sense, there are plenty of other icon components already, so this component has been archived and replaced with new component that supports Iconify API.

Installation

This monorepo uses Lerna to manage packages.

First you need to install Lerna:

npm run install

To install dependencies in all packages, run

npm run bootstrap

This will install all dependencies and create symbolic links to packages.

If links stop working for some reason, run npm run link to fix links.

If you want to re-install dependencies, run npm run clean to clear all repositories (press "Y" to continue), then npm run bootstrap to install everything again.

Documentation

Documentation for all packages is available on Iconify documentation website:
