This repository is a SVG images resource based on SVG icons JQuery Mobile 1.4.5 and extended with SVG icons from Wiki Commons. The icons are primary collected for menus in webbased application or for icons in buttons.

Usage of Icons4Menu - WebApps

Icons4Menu are generated for the Wikiversity Learning Resource about AppLSAC.

Download of Icons with a Script

The icons can be downloaded with a script:

  • - which allows fetching all icons and the README and licencing information about the icons. In case you want to use the latest icons added to the repository you should update the If you do not have any of the available icons in the repository it is recommended to download the ZIP-file of the repository for your HTML5-WebApp, because it will reduce the number of server requests for the GitHub-server infrastructure.
  • (All Icons) The download of icons for your WebApp (resp. AppLSAC) can be started from the shell command line with
   sh ./
  • (All Icons of Format SVG) the script call of downloads the SVG icons of this repository and it is equivalent to the script call:
   sh ./ svg
  • (All Icons of Format PNG) the script call of downloads the SVG icons of this repository and it is equivalent to the script call:
   sh ./ png
  • (Single Icons of Format SVG) if you want to download a single PNG icon (e.g. video.svg or video-white.svg) you can call the script with the format parameter svg and:
   sh ./ svg video.svg
   sh ./ svg video-white.svg
  • (Single Icons of Format PNG) if you want to download a single PNG icon (e.g. video.png or video-white.png) you can call the script with the format parameter png and:
   sh ./ png video.png
   sh ./ png video-white.png

Update Icons with the ZIP File

A script command should be used for single icon updates from the repository and that creates a server request only for single additional icon you need, that you might not have currently. For a complete repository you can download the ZIP-file of the repository for your HTML5-WebApp, this is just a single server request for all icons (with this you can help to reduce the traffic on network infrastructure and the number of server requests - thank you)

Update the Script

Any time new icons are added to the repository icons4menu the script is updated as well, because the new icons are added to the list of wget download commands in the script. There is an option to update the script to the latest version by downloading the script If you want to use the update script, navigate to the folder in which you want to have the icons4menu folder img/ and then download the script with:


Please check the content of the script before executing, so that you are sure that the script does what you expect the script to (i.e. updating the script Then check the content of Performs the script the expected down or do you want to reduce the number of downloaded icons before executing the script If you are sure that the script download all the icons you need, perform the download operation by calling:

  sh ./

JSON file json4icons.json and json4icons.js

The JSON file json4icons.json contains a list of all icons with

  • name: filename,
  • path: the path to the icon,
  • license: the license information for the icon,
  • raw: available only for SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images. raw contains the raw string content was added to the JSON. This was added for transparent encoding of the SVG and those developers that prefer to use the raw string format in XML for the image can use that. In a browser you can convert
  • src: is the base64 encoded data of the image as Data URL that can used in images in the DOM. The source us either the XML source text of the SVG image or the binary data as base64 encoded data of the image.

The file json4icons.js is a library that populates a hash object vDataJSON defined with var vDataJSON = {}; in the main HTML file that embeds the icons4menu.

  • used is boolean that can be set by an application to reduce the number of icons in the JSON data to the used icons. Set all used icons to true and remove all the unused icons from the JSON to reduce the size of the JSON especially for WebApps (see also AppLSAC on Wikiversity ).

Example Icon Record in json4icons.js

    "name": "arrow-r-black.svg",
    "path": "img/icons-svg",
    "used": false,
    "src": "data:image/svg+xml;base64,PD94bWwgdmVyc2lvbj0....",
    "license": "CC0",
    "group": "arrow",
    "raw": "<?xml version=\"1.0\"...",
    "wikicommons": ""

The content in src and raw are shortend so that the record fits into this README page.

JSON File Icons4Menu

The repository contains also a JSON file with all icons of the repository. The JSON file json4icons.json can be used to identify the used icons with NodeJS and delete the unused icons from your img/ folder of your WebApp to save disk space and reduce the size of your WebApp.

Even if you remove icons from your WebApp in the folder img/ you should keep the license file LICENSE_Jquery_Mobile.txt, and README_Icons4Menu.html in that repository for licensing information about the icons.

Create your own Icons

If you want to create your own items you can use

If you want to export the new icon please use the SVG file format. The Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) defines the image with the Extensible Markup Language as (XML)-based vector image for two-dimensional graphics. The format has the advantage, that increasing the size of the icon does not create pixel effects, because the icon is defined by geometric shapes and not a raster of pixels.

Save the icon with 14x14 pixel for width and height, so that the icon has a standard size for a menu if not additional size attributes are used in CSS or the img-tag itself.

Style Sheets CSS for Icons

The spinner icon is static. You might expect the spinner icon fa-spinner.svg to rotate. This can be accomplish with CSS class definition for a class icon-spin:

  • Add in your CSS file the following styles for the class icon-spin:
.icon-spin {
    position: absolute;
    top: 50%;
    left: 50%;
    width: 120px;
    height: 120px;
    margin:-60px 0 0 -60px;
    -webkit-animation:spin 4s linear infinite;
    -moz-animation:spin 4s linear infinite;
    animation:spin 4s linear infinite;
@-moz-keyframes spin { 100% { -moz-transform: rotate(360deg); } }
@-webkit-keyframes spin { 100% { -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg); } }
  • The you can make the icons rotate by adding the icon-spin classname to the icon:
<img class="icon-spin" src="img/icons-svg/fa-spinner.svg" alt="" width="20" height="20">

Scan Icons

Scan Shell Script for images

The shell script scans all icons in the subdirectory img/ and creates and HTML file img/index.html and a wget download script, that can be modified for downloading a subset of the images.

Shell Script

The shell script can be used to download a subset of images. In the provided default version it downloads all icons in this repository.

  • This will also be downloaded and stored in img/README_Icons4Menu.html. Please do not remove this file because it provides a reference to the origin of the files and the corresponding licenses.
  • The JQuery Mobile License is stored in img/LICENSE_Jquery_Mobile.txt. For JQuery Mobile license see file LICENSE_Jquery_Mobile.txt in the repository Icons4Menu.

Use in other SVG Images in other repositories

The script updates the script from the repository icons4menu and replaces the script The script can be used to download an updated version of the icons. Please modify the script according to your needs, to download just a subset for your AppLSAC.

If the repository icons4menu is expanded with more icons with a Creative Commons license, that it is recommended to update the download script with the following commands:

sh ./
sh ./

The second command downloads the icons. You can help to minimize the GitHub server load by tailoring the script according to your needs.

If you want to check out an example repository on GitHub, that uses the Icons4Menu icons in an AppLSAC analyze the subdirectory img/ in hamburger_menu_app.

Add License Info File

If you use the repository add this file to the WebApp, so that users of web-based applications can identify the origin of the SVG and PNG icons. The repository incorporated SVG and PNG icons with two licenses:

Attribution for Files - File Prefix

If we consider the CC BY-SA 3.0 license provides the freedom to:

  • Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
  • Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially. These two freedoms are also provided for the license CC Zero. Furthermore for all CC BY-SA 3.0 licensed icons an attribution and a share alike requirement is defined (see
  • Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
  • ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

The JQuery Mobile 1.4.5 PNG and SVG icons in this repository (i.e. icons without fa- prefix) do not require the "attribution", but it is recommended to provide attribution also to JQuery Mobile 1.4.5 with the CC Zero license for icons without the fa- prefix. Especially for adding more icons in forks of the repository icons4menu the prefix fa- should also be used to distinguish CC Zero licensed icons without fa- prefix from CC BY-SA 3.0 licensed icon that need a file attribution by adding the prefix fa- in the filename.

More than 2 Licenses in Forks of icons4menu with license prefix

If you have more than 2 licenses in your fork of icons4menu you could add a license prefix for all icons, e.g.:

  • cc0-recycle.svg for CC Zero licensed icons from JQuery Mobile 1.4.5,
  • cc3bysa-recycle.svg for CC BY-SA 3.0 licensed icons from Wiki Commons,
  • cc4by-recycle.svg for CC BY 4.0 licensed icons e.g. from an additional source used in the fork of icons4menu.

This allows users to identify the license of the file directly from the filename.


This repository is a SVG images resource based on SVG icons JQuery Mobile 1.4.5 and extended with SVG icons from Wiki Commons. The icons are primary collected for application in menus with e.g. Hamburger Menus like hamburger_menu_app as AppLSAC.
