SVG-Icon-Font-Generator

Creates a SVG font from a set of SVG files and vice versa.
The glyph mapping is based on the file names – that makes updating and extending easy and fast.

git clone https://github.com/madeyourday/SVG-Icon-Font-Generator.git
cd SVG-Icon-Font-Generator

Or download the latest release here: https://github.com/madeyourday/SVG-Icon-Font-Generator/releases

System Requirements

  • PHP 5.3 or higher
  • PHP mbstrings needs to be enabled
  • phar.readonly must be off.

Usage

Create a SVG font from a set of SVG files

php svg-icon-font-generator.phar create-font /path/to/svg/files your-font.svg --rename-files

The files should be named like this:

  • arrow-up-x2191.svg use the correct unicode symbol if possible
  • magnifying-glass-xe001.svg otherwise use the unicode "Private Use Area" (start from xe001, don't use xe000)
  • key.svg this file gets automatically mapped to a unicode "Private Use Area" symbol, if you use the --rename-files option this file will be renamed to something like key-xe002.svg

The list above generates the class names icon-arrow-up, icon-magnifying-glass and icon-key.

For creating new icons you can use this SVG template: https://github.com/downloads/madeyourday/SVG-Icon-Font-Generator/icon-template.svg

An example set of SVG files can be found here: https://github.com/madeyourday/RockSolid-Icon-Font/tree/master/svg
