svgMagic, SVGMAGIC, svgm, or SVGM is a dynamic svg management package designed for Next.js applications. It allows developers and designers to easily load and manage svg's, making them instantly available in the development environment without manual imports or pre-specifications.

Visit our website for more in depth documentation and example animations at


  • Dynamic Loading: Automatically load .svg files from a specified directory.
  • Easy Integration: No need to predefine or manually import svg's.
  • TailwindCSS Compatibility: Style svg's using TailwindCSS classes.
  • Optimized for Next.js: Seamlessly integrate with Next.js applications.


Use your preffered package manager to install the package.

pnpm i svgmagic
npm i svgmagic
yarn add svgmagic

Ensure SVGR is Installed

SVGM uses SVGR to transform svg into React components. SVGR is a peer dependency and should be installed automatically. If not, you can install it manually:

npm install @svgr/webpack

Configure SVGR in Next.js

Add the following configuration to your next.config.js to enable SVGR:

// next.config.js
module.exports = {
  webpack(config) {
      test: /\.svg$/,
      use: ['@svgr/webpack'],

    return config;


To use SVGM in your Next.js project, follow these next steps:

  1. Run the Install Script: SVGM includes an install script to scaffold the necessary files and directories. Run the following command after installing the package:


    This script will:

    • Create a default or configurable svgm directory under src.
    • Optionally copy sample .svg's into this directory.
    • Create the SVGM.tsx component file in this directory.

    Note: This setup is required because require.context is a webpack feature not available to npm packages. Once locally scaffolded, it works like a charm!

  2. Import and Use SVGM Component:

    // Example usage in a Next.js page
    import SVGM from '../components/svgm/SVGM';
    const ExamplePage = () => (
        <SVGM kind="apple" className="h-8 w-8 text-black" />
    export default ExamplePage;

Changing the Default Path and Installing Sample svg's

During setup, you can choose whether to install sample .svg's and change the default path for the svgm directory. The sample .svg's are sourced from company websites and are up-to-date as of May 15, 2024.

Adding SVGM to MDX

To use SVGM with MDX components in a setup like Contentlayer, update your mdx-components.js file:

// src/components/mdx-components.js
import SVGM from './SVGM';

const components = {
  // other MDX components...

export default components;

Adding New svg's

  1. Naming Convention:

    • Place your .svg files in the /svgm directory.
    • Use concise and descriptive filenames. The name of the .svg file will be used to call the svg code in your components.
  2. Replace Fill Colors:

    • Open the .svg file in an editor.
    • Replace desired fill colors with "currentColor" using camel case.


    <!-- Original -->
    <svg fill="#000000" ...>
    <!-- Updated -->
    <svg fill="currentColor" ...>

    This allows you to style the .svg's using CSS classes.
