Angular Universal SVG Transfer State

Seamlessly transfer SVG data from server to browser.


npm i @flosportsinc/ng-svg-transfer-state

Table of Contents


Inside your AppModule install SvgTransferStateModule like so:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'
import { SvgTransferStateModule } from '@flosportsinc/ng-svg-transfer-state'

  imports: [
    SvgTransferStateModule, // for default configuration { styles: { height: '18px' }, parentStyleKeys: ['height', 'width'] }
    SvgTransferStateModule.config({ // or use your own custom settings
      styles: { height: '48px', fill: 'green' },
      parentStyleKeys: ['height'] // the container element (ex: <i>, <span>, etc) will also get these styles applied to it.
export class AppBrowserModule { }


Inside your BrowserModule (or AppModule if you are not using a universal server) install SvgTransferStateBrowserModule like so:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'
import { SvgTransferStateBrowserModule } from '@flosportsinc/ng-svg-transfer-state/browser'

  imports: [
    SvgTransferStateBrowserModule, // with default root (defaults to "assets/svg")
      dir: 'public/assets/svg', // with custom root
      cacheMaxAge: 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 7 // will cache in user's localstorage for 7 days, by default cache is only per session.
export class AppBrowserModule { }


If you have a Universal app you will need to include the SvgTransferStateServerModule in AppServerModule like so:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'
import { SvgTransferStateServerModule } from '@flosportsinc/ng-svg-transfer-state/server'

// To customize the director where your SVG assets live on the node server use .withSvgAssetRoot()
// By default it sets the root directory to "./dist/assets/svg"

  imports: [
    SvgTransferStateServerModule, // with default root (defaults to "./dist/assets/svg")
    SvgTransferStateServerModule.withSvgAssetRoot('dist/flo-angular/browser/assets/svg') // with custom root
export class AppServerModule { }


Both the server and client can cache http and file lookup requests.

Server Caching

// server.ts (your node.js express server)

// this example uses the npm package "lru-cache"
// npm install lru-cache @types/lru-cache

import { ngExpressEngine } from '@nguniversal/express-engine'
import { SVG_SERVER_CACHE } from '@flosportsinc/ng-svg-transfer-state'
import * as lru from 'lru-cache' // it is not required to use this specific package

// it is imperative that the DI token for the cache is injected in the node server itself
// not from within the angular application. Otherwise a new cache would be spawned each time
// and the values would not be shared globally accross requests - defeating the purpose

// By providing a cache object, both externally fetched SVGs and local file svgs will be cached
// this should dramatically reduce server load time as no network or readFile requests are made if the
// svg is cached.

app.engine('html', ngExpressEngine({
  bootstrap: AppServerModuleNgFactory,
  providers: [
      provide: SVG_SERVER_CACHE,
      useValue: new lru({ maxAge: 1000 * 60 * 60 }) // cache is bypassed if the last cache write has expired.

Client Caching


Simplest usage with default settings applied

<i floSvg="twitter"></i>

With applied styles

<!-- recommend placing settings object in typescript component controller instead of inlining -->
<i floSvg="twitter" [floSvgStyles]="{ fill: 'blue', height: '72px' }"></i>

With external sources

<!-- make sure CORS headers are legit and proper XML is returned -->
<i floSvg="https://my-awesome-icon.svg"></i>
