This project just provides icons from various projects. All icons are made available through the following dimensions (in pixels):
You can insert the icons directly into your HTML with a common IMG tag:
In addition to the icons by themselves, this project also ships a CSS spritesheet for the icon-pack. This spritesheet allows to load the entire icon-pack in just 1 image, and thus reduce HTTP calls.
This is what it actually looks:
All the positioning of the icons inside this alone image is made through CSS, which allows you to just add block-type tags with the proper class and get the same result:
Just remember to add the CSS stylesheet to the HEAD of your HTML page!

Build the whole project or your custom project
We use Gulp to build the project, so if you want to re-build or customize this project, you'll need Gulp.
After gulp is installed, and your CLI is pointed to your work directory, first install the dependencies:
with NPM 2.x.x
with NPM 3.x.x (resolve dependencies for
node-spritesheet before this module's ones)
npm install grunt grunt-contrib-coffee grunt-contrib-clean
then be sure that you have ImageMagick installed for building spritesheet.
then, you can run the
gulp build task to build the project:
What the build task does?
First, it takes PNG files from the
src folder, and pastes them to the
Then it creates a spritesheet from the PNG images located in the
src folder, and thus creates the
sprite folder in
If, for example you just want
html5 icons in a spritesheet, you just have to fork this project, point your CLI to the working directory,
src directory, except
html5 icons in PNG format, and then run the
gulp build task.
You'll get the proper spritesheet and copies of the icons directly in the
Each icon in this project belong to its original author, and for most of them, they are copyrighted. Some of these icons may not match their project's official icon/logo.
Actually, this icon set is quite opinionated, but is definitely open to improvements, or critics.
Please note that the project "vendor-icons" does not consider these icons as free-to-use by default: if you want to use these icons in your project, you may|shall|should|must check with the rightful owners that your use of the icon is OK.
This project is meant to follow any kind of "upstream-design".
Let's say NPM creates a Github repository to host SVG/EPS/AI for the NPM logo, then
vendor-icons's vocation would be to create a workflow to take the repository as a source for the NPM icon.
Each project and/or company handles graphic assets in different manners, and then,
vendor-icons can not give general guidelines for use or licensing, since each icon may have its own guidelines/policy/license.
Please refer the rightful owners in case you don't know whether your use of any icon is legit or not.
The icons are borrowed from the following projects:
- Atom Editor
- Code Climate
- Firefox Developer Edition
- Firefox OS
- Internet Explorer
- Stack Overflow
- Windows 8
