Examples

# Generate `sprites.svg` from SVG files in the current directory
$ spritely

# Generate `icons.svg` from SVG files in the directory `/mnt/e/assets`
$ spritely --input /mnt/e/assets/icons --output icons.svg
$ spritely -i /mnt/e/assets/icons -o icons.svg

# Generate `sprites.svg` from SVG files in the current directory with viewBox `0 0 24 24`
$ spritely --viewbox "0 0 24 24"
$ spritely -v "0 0 24 24"

# Generate `sprites.svg` from SVG files in the current directory with prefix `icon-`
$ spritely --prefix "icon-"
$ spritely -p "icon-"

# Generate `sprites.svg` from SVG files in the directory `/mnt/e/assets` and the directories within it
$ spritely --input /mnt/e/assets/icons --recursive true
$ spritely -i /mnt/e/assets/icons -r

# Generate `sprites.svg` from SVG files in the current directory with accessibility mode
$ spritely --a11y true
$ spritely -a

Optimization

Pair spritely with svgo to optimize the SVG files and generate sprites from them. A sample pipeline may look like this:

svgo -f /mnt/e/assets/icons && spritely -i /mnt/e/assets/icons

Accessibility

spritely comes with a rudimentary accessibility mode (using --a11y option) which injects a <title> tag in the symbols based on the file name.

For more control, you can add the <title> tag manually in an SVG file.

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 24 24" fill="none" stroke="currentColor" stroke-width="2" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round">
  <title>Airplay icon</title>
  <path d="M5 17H4a2 2 0 0 1-2-2V5a2 2 0 0 1 2-2h16a2 2 0 0 1 2 2v10a2 2 0 0 1-2 2h-1"></path>
  <polygon points="12 15 17 21 7 21 12 15"></polygon>
</svg>
