@mdi/font-build

Goal: Build the Material Design Icons SVG icons to a webfont.

Most notably this generates @mdi/font, but is written to allow others to add custom icons or tweak the output.

CLI

By installing @mdi/font-build globally one can generate their own webfont build.

# Install Globally 
npm install -g @mdi/font-build
# Reads config from font-build.json 
font-build

To run without installing use npx @mdi/font-build

Input

Any version of @mdi/svg v3.9.95+ will work with no changes. For earlier versions copy the font-build.json and update the version: { major: 3, minor: 9, patch: 95 } values.

Download from MaterialDesign-SVG

font-build --help explains all the possible overrides.

Folder Structure

meta.json
font-build.json
svg/
  account.svg
  ...

font-build is ran in the root of this folder.

Output

The output is essentially the @mdi/font package that is released to NPM and the CDN after every release. These are built to target IE11+.

Why is the SVG font not generated?

The .svg format is very heavy font format not used by modern browsers, but it can be included. Simply append the --fontSvg flag.

font-build --fontSvg
