This is a simple package which contains css classes for all material design icons and MaterialIcons font.
To use any font icons in nativescript project, there is a great plugin nativescript-fonticon for vanilla nativescript project and nativescript-ng2-fonticon for angular native projects. That plugin requires a font file and a css file containing mapping of className and unicode of the icon.
material-design-icons repository do not provide css file so we need to generate it manually.
This plugin provides the ready to use css file containing mapping of className and its unicode. This plugin also automatically copy the MaterialIcons-Regular.ttf file to
app/fonts folder and
material-design-icons.css file to
app/ directory. So you don't need to manually add those files. Also, upon uninstall of this plugin, it will remove those two files.
npm install nativescript-material-icons --save
