FamFamFam Silk icon pack

famfamfam-silk

The Silk 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 PNG format.

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

    <img alt="Delete" src="dist/png/key_delete.png" width="16" height="16">

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-silk key_delete"></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-silk

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 files from the src folder, and pastes 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 application_put and monitor_edit icons in a spritesheet, you just have to fork this project, point your CLI to the working directory, empty the src directory, except application_put and monitor_edit 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.
