FamFamFam Flags icon pack

famfamfam-flags

The Flags icon pack, as available on famfamfam website.

All credits for these icons go to their original author: Mark James (mjames@gmail.com)

The aim of this project is to make this icon pack available through various package managers, such as:

All icons are supplied in both PNG and GIF formats.

Note that 1 flag has been added to the original package: gg.png (or gg.gif).

This flag was created by Damien Guard (damieng@gmail.com), in the "add-on" package for FamFamFam icons named Silk Companion.

You can insert the icons directly into your HTML with a common IMG tag:

    <img alt="French Flag" src="dist/png/fr.png" width="16" height="11">

In addition to the icons by themselves, this project also ships a CSS spritesheet for the icon-pack. This spritesheet allows to load the entire icon-pack in just 1 image, and thus reduce HTTP calls.

This is what it actually looks:

All the positioning of the icons inside this alone image is made through CSS, which allows you to just add block-type tags with the proper class and get the same result:

    <div class="famfamfam-flags fr"></div>

Just remember to add the CSS stylesheet to the HEAD of your HTML page!

Just run the following on the CLI (provided your CLI is directed to your work directory)

npm install famfamfam-flags

Just run the following on the CLI (provided your CLI is directed to your work directory)

Silk companion icon set #1 - "More Silk!" Last updated: 19 November 2007

The FamFamFam Silk icon set is a very large, consistent set of well-drawn icons that has proven to be popular with both applications and web sites.

On a number of occasions I have found myself wanting more icons in the same style. This companion set represents what I needed but also what I felt like adding.

Some are new icons in the same style, some are alternative sizes/colours of the existing icons and some are new compositions of the elements.

Any questions about this companion set please contact damieng@gmail.com.

All the content of this repository (excepted the icon pack) is licensed under the MIT license.

Though, it is just composed a few trivial json files and a Readme.

We use Gulp to build the project, so if you want to re-build or customize this project, you'll need Gulp.

After gulp is installed, and your CLI is pointed to your work directory, first install the dependencies:

     npm install

then, you can run the gulp build task to build the project:

     gulp build

What the build task does?

First, it takes PNG and GIF files from the src folder, and tidies them to the dist folder.

Then it creates a spritesheet from the PNG images located in the src folder, and thus creates the sprite folder in dist.

If, for example you just want fr and gg icons in a spritesheet, you just have to fork this project, point your CLI to the working directory, empty the src directory, except fr and gg icons in PNG format, and then run the gulp build task.

You'll get the proper spritesheet and copies of the icons directly in the dist folder.
