What Reacticons?

Reacticons are scalable file icons for ReactJS. They're hip, cute, customizeable, and (can be) animated.

Using Reacticons in your project

First, of course, you need to require Reacticons.

var Reacticon = require('path/to/reacticon');

Boom, now you can use Reacticons where ever you want!

<Reacticon
  height="100"
  primaryColor="#2ECC40"
  type="table"
  label="xlxs"
  animate />

Available props

Reacticons have quite a few props that can help you customize the appearance and behavior of the icons.

width

Type: String

height

Type: String You'll need to define a width or a height, otherwise you won't be able to see your lovely new icon!

type

Type: String. One of 'text', 'table', 'image', 'code', 'slides' Required. Defines the file type icon within the file icon.

label

Type: String This is intended to be the file extension of the file represented by the icon. For example, doc, xlsx, html.

bgColor

Type: String Default: #fff. Accepts a valid CSS color. Defines the color of the file image. The fold-over flap is derived from the main background color.

primaryColor

Type: String Default: #0074d9. Accepts a valid CSS color. The file type icon is monochromatic. You can define the base color for this icon.

strokeColor

Type: String Accepts a valid CSS color to draw a 1px border around the icon background.

animate

Type: Boolean The file type icons can have cute little animations.

progress

Type: String If there is a value for this prop, a progress bar will replace the label.

isPorcessing

Type: Boolean Should the progress bar have a loading indicator style? If progress is not defined, the progress bar will be "processing" at 100%.

Why is this useful?

Commonly, modern web applications make use of image sprite- or font-based icons. Font-based icons work particularly well becasue they're inheriently vector-based, however there are plenty of limitations. Here are two: icons can be difficult to animate and they're limited to only one color (unless you want to do some multi-icon layout gymnastics).

ReactJS makes it really easy to manage SVGs and include configurable SVG-based components in your project. Reacticons are SVG file icons that can be easily included in your project and colored, scaled, progress-bared and animated.
