Logo simpleicons

Code style: black

Use a wide-range of icons derived from the simple-icons repo in python. Go to their website for a full list of icons. The slug version must be used for the icon_name. The icons folder that accompanies the package has all the files. The package uses the latest verison of Simple Icons. It does not depend on the filesystem.


Install with pip install simpleicons. Keep in mind that this is a fairly large package due to all the icons.


General Usage

The API can then be used as follows, where [ICON SLUG] is replaced by a slug:

from simpleicons.all import icons

# Get a specific icon by its slug as:
icons.get('[ICON SLUG]')

# For example:
icon = icons.get('simpleicons')


    'title': 'Simple Icons',
    'slug': 'simpleicons',
    'hex': '111111',
    'source': '',
    'svg': '<svg role="img" viewBox="0 0 24 24" xmlns="">...</svg>',
    'path': 'M12 12v-1.5c-2.484 ...',
    'guidelines': '',
    'license': {
        type: '...',
        url: ''

NOTE: The guidelines entry will be None if we do not yet have guidelines data for the icon.

NOTE: The license entry will be None if we do not yet have license data for the icon.

Alternatively you can import the needed icons individually, where [ICON SLUG] is replaced by a slug:

# Import a specific icon by its slug as:
from simpleicons.icons import si_[ICON_SLUG]

# For example:
from simpleicons.icons import si_simpleicons

Lastly, the icons object is also enumerable. This is useful if you want to do a computation on every icon:

from simpleicons.all import icons

for (key, icon in icons) {
    # do stuff


The XML for each icon can be easily manipulated with either of two functions:

Icon.get_xml(**attrs) -> ElementTree

from simpleicons.icons import si_simpleicons

# blue logo, adds the fill attribute: <svg fill="blue"></svg>

Icon.get_xml_bytes(**attrs) -> bytes

from simpleicons.icons import si_simpleicons



In order to use this, you must install the extras: pip install -e simpleicons[imaging] . Icons can be converted to PIL Images with icon_to_image(icon_xml: bytes, bg: int=0xffffff, scale: Tuple[int, int]=(1, 1)) -> Image:

from simpleicons.icons import si_simpleicons
from simpleicons.image import icon_to_image

xml_bytes = si_simpleicons.get_xml_bytes(fill="blue")

# black background and 5x scale
img = icon_to_image(xml_bytes, bg=0x000000, scale=(5, 5))

# manipulate PIL Image
