Reacticons are scalable file icons for ReactJS. They're hip, cute, customizeable, and (can be) animated.
First, of course, you need to
var Reacticon = require('path/to/reacticon');
Boom, now you can use Reacticons where ever you want!
Reacticons have quite a few
props that can help you customize the appearance and behavior of the icons.
You'll need to define a
width or a
height, otherwise you won't be able to see your lovely new icon!
Type: String. One of 'text', 'table', 'image', 'code', 'slides' Required. Defines the file type icon within the file icon.
This is intended to be the file extension of the file represented by the icon. For example,
#fff. Accepts a valid CSS color. Defines the color of the file image. The fold-over flap is derived from the main background color.
#0074d9. Accepts a valid CSS color. The file type icon is monochromatic. You can define the base color for this icon.
Type: String Accepts a valid CSS color to draw a 1px border around the icon background.
Type: Boolean The file type icons can have cute little animations.
If there is a value for this
prop, a progress bar will replace the label.
Should the progress bar have a loading indicator style? If
progress is not defined, the progress bar will be "processing" at 100%.
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.
Reacticons are new to this world and I'm a designer. Please submit issues for any problems you may encounter. If you'd like to contribute, feel free to open an issue or pull request. Also, I'd love to hear from you if you use Reacticons in your project!
