View Icons

styled-icons provides the Font Awesome, Feather, Icomoon, Material Design, Octicons, Typicons, Crypto Icons and Boxicons icon packs as Styled Components, with full support for TypeScript types and tree-shaking / ES modules.


Table of Contents

Installation

yarn add styled-icons

or

npm install styled-icons --save

Additionally, you will need to have installed a version of styled-components at least version 4.1.0 or newer, as styled-icons depends on styled-components as a peer dependency.

If you are using Next.js, you likely also want to install next-plugin-styled-icons to take advantage of tree shaking.

Usage

All Font Awesome (free), Feather, Material, and Octicon icons are available for preview at the Icon Explorer.

The entire icon packs are available via the main import and sub-imports:

import {material, octicons} from 'styled-icons'
 
import * as boxiconsLogos from 'styled-icons/boxicons-logos'
import * as boxiconsRegular from 'styled-icons/boxicons-regular'
import * as boxiconsSolid from 'styled-icons/boxicons-solid'
import * as crypto from 'styled-icons/crypto'
import * as faBrands from 'styled-icons/fa-brands'
import * as faRegular from 'styled-icons/fa-regular'
import * as faSolid from 'styled-icons/fa-solid'
import * as feather from 'styled-icons/feather'
import * as icomoon from 'styled-icons/icomoon'
import * as material from 'styled-icons/material'
import * as octicons from 'styled-icons/octicons'
import * as typicons from 'styled-icons/typicons'

The icons are also available as individual imports - it is recommended that you import icons individually using ES modules along with a module bundler like Webpack or Rollup in order to enable tree-shaking. This means that the module bundler will remove unused icons from the final JavaScript bundle, saving bandwidth and speeding up loading:

import React, {Fragment} from 'react'
import {AccountCircle, Lock} from 'styled-icons/material'
 
const App = () => (
  <Fragment>
    <AccountCircle />
    <Lock />
  </Fragment>
)

Props

Styled Icons accept all the valid props of an <svg /> element, in addition to the following custom props:

Prop Required Type Description
size optional string, number This is a convenience for setting both width and height to the same value
title optional string This sets the icon title and enables the standalone icon accessability mode. See accessibility below for additional details

Example

import React from 'react'
import {Lock} from 'styled-icons/material'
 
const App = () => <Lock size="48" title="Unlock account" />

Icon Dimensions

Some icons natively have non-square dimensions - original dimensions are exported from the individual icon exports:

import {LogoGithub, LogoGithubDimensions} from 'styled-icons/octicons/LogoGithub'
 
const App = () => <LogoGithub />
 
console.log(LogoGithubDimension) // {height: 16, width: 45}

Dimension exports are not available on the icon pack or index exports:

import * as octicons from 'styled-icons/octicons'
import {octicons} from 'styled-icons'
 
// octicons contains only icon exports

Styled Components

All icons are exported as Styled Components, which means it is possible to utilize the Styled Components API:

import styled from 'styled-components'
import {Lock} from 'styled-icons/material'
 
export const RedLock = styled(Lock)`
  color: red;
 
  font-weight: ${props => (props.important ? 'bold' : 'normal')};
`

Accessibility

Styled Icons have two different built-in "modes" for accessibility purposes. By default, icons are considered decorative, meaning the icon is just visual sugar and the surrounding content is sufficient for conveying meaning. This will set the aria-hidden attribute on the resulting HTML to hide the icon from screen readers.

// this icon
<Lock />
 
// will result in
<svg aria-hidden="true">...</svg>

Alternatively the icon could be used in standalone mode, meaning the icon itself should convey meaning. This mode is enabled by setting a title prop - this is the text that will be read by a screen reader. This results in role being set to img and the addition of a <title> element.

// this icon
<Lock title="Lock account" />
 
// will result in
<svg role="img"><title>Lock account</title> ...</svg>

Since Style Icons accept all <svg> element attributes as props, you are free to override these aria-* attributes if you have a more complex use-case.

As this library provides direct access to the <svg> element, you may wish to further wrap the icon for additional semantic meaning. For example, for a loading spinner:

import styled from 'styled-components'
import {Spinner} from 'styled-icons/fa-solid/Spinner'
 
const VisuallyHidden = styled.span`
  border: 0 !important;
  clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px) !important;
  height: 1px !important;
  overflow: hidden !important;
  padding-top: 0 !important;
  padding-right: 0 !important;
  padding-bottom: 0 !important;
  padding-left: 0 !important;
  position: absolute !important;
  white-space: nowrap !important;
  width: 1px !important;
`
 
<span title="Loading posts..." role="alert" aria-live="assertive">
  <Spinner />
  <VisuallyHidden>Loading posts...</VisuallyHidden>
</span>

Tree Shaking

NOTE: tree shaking should work without modification using Create React App.

Tree shaking has been tested with Create React App v2, Rollup, and Webpack v4. If you are using Next.js, you will want to install next-plugin-styled-icons to take advantage of tree shaking.

If you aren't using any of those bundlers or if your bundler is otherwise unable to import the icons, additional CommonJS bundles are available as .cjs:

import React, {Fragment} from 'react'
 
// This will result in all Material icons being bundled
import {Account} from 'styled-icons/material.cjs'
 
// This will only include the Lock icon
import {Lock} from 'styled-icons/material/Lock.cjs'
 
const App = () => (
  <Fragment>
    <Account />
    <Lock />
  </Fragment>
)

Be aware though that importing from the CommonJS icon pack bundles will likely result in significantly larger bundle sizes, because unused icons will be included in the final bundle. If you are unable to configure your bundler to process the ES module bundles, you should import icons individually to avoid large bundles.

TypeScript

The icons of styled-icons are built using TypeScript and export type definitions. If you need a type to reference any styled icon, there is a StyledIcon type exported from the styled-icons/types import:

import styled from 'styled-components'
import {StyledIcon} from 'styled-icons/types'
 
interface Props {
  icon: StyledIcon
}

If you have any ideas for improvements to the TypeScript typing, please open an issue or PR!
