Favicons Webpack Plugin

npm version Dependency Status Build status js-semistandard-style

Allows to use the favicons generator with webpack


You must be running webpack on node 0.12.x or higher

Install the plugin with npm:

$ npm install --save-dev favicons-webpack-plugin

Basic Usage

Add the plugin to your webpack config as follows:

let FaviconsWebpackPlugin = require('favicons-webpack-plugin')


plugins: [
  new FaviconsWebpackPlugin('my-logo.png')

This basic configuration will generate 37 different icons for iOS devices, Android devices and the Desktop browser out of your my-logo.png file. It can optionally also generate a JSON file with all information about the icons for you.

If you are using with html-webpack-plugin it will also inject the necessary html for you:


  <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="57x57" href="icons-366a3768de05f9e78c392fa62b8fbb80/apple-touch-icon-57x57.png">
  <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="60x60" href="icons-366a3768de05f9e78c392fa62b8fbb80/apple-touch-icon-60x60.png">
  <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="72x72" href="icons-366a3768de05f9e78c392fa62b8fbb80/apple-touch-icon-72x72.png">
  <link rel="apple-touch-startup-image" media="(device-width: 768px) and (device-height: 1024px) and (orientation: portrait) and (-webkit-device-pixel-ratio: 2)" href="icons-366a3768de05f9e78c392fa62b8fbb80/apple-touch-startup-image-1536x2008.png">

Advanced Usage

  new FaviconsWebpackPlugin({
    // Your source logo
    logo: 'my-logo.png',
    // The prefix for all image files (might be a folder or a name)
    prefix: 'icons-[hash]/',
    // Emit all stats of the generated icons
    emitStats: false,
    // The name of the json containing all favicon information
