Vue-Awesome

Awesome SVG icon component for Vue.js, built-in with Font Awesome icons.

Vue-Awesome is built upon Font Awesome v4.5.0 and depends on Vue.js v2.0.1+.

Check out the demo here.

Installation

NPM (Recommended)

$ npm install vue-awesome

bower

$ bower install vue-awesome

manual

Just download dist/vue-awesome.js and include it in your HTML file:

<script src="path/to/vue-awesome/dist/vue-awesome.js"></script>

Usage

<!-- basic -->
<icon name="beer"></icon>
 
<!-- with options -->
<icon name="refresh" scale="2" spin></icon>
<icon name="comment" flip="horizontal"></icon>
<icon name="code-fork" label="Forked Repository"></icon>
 
<!-- stacked icons -->
<icon label="No Photos">
  <icon name="camera"></icon>
  <icon name="ban" scale="2" class="alert"></icon>
</icon>

ES Modules with NPM & vue-loader (Recommended)

import Vue from 'vue'
 
/* Pick one way between the 2 following ways */
 
// only import the icons you use to reduce bundle size
import 'vue-awesome/icons/flag'
 
// or import all icons if you don't care about bundle size
import 'vue-awesome/icons'
 
/* Register component with one of 2 methods */
 
import Icon from 'vue-awesome/components/Icon'
 
// globally (in your main .js file)
Vue.component('icon', Icon)
 
// or locally (in your component file)
export default {
  components: {
    Icon
  }
}

CommonJS with NPM without ES Next support

var Vue = require('vue')
 
// requiring the UMD module
var Icon = require('vue-awesome')
 
// or with vue-loader you can require the src directly
var Icon = require('vue-awesome/components/Icon.vue')
 
// register component to use

AMD

require.config({
  paths: {
    'vue-awesome': 'path/to/vue-awesome'
  }
})
 
require(['vue-awesome'], function (Icon) {
  // register component to use...
})

Global variable

The component class is exposed as window.VueAwesome.

Heads up

Importing the souce version

If you are using vue-cli to create your project and you want to use the untranspiled component (import vue-awesome/components/Icon rather than import vue-awesome directly, to optimize bundle size, which is recommended), the webpack template may exclude node_modules from files to be transpiled by Babel (see #7, #13). To fix this problem, try change build/webpack.base.conf.js like this:

For webpack 1.x:

      {
        test: /\.js$/,
        loader: 'babel',
        include: [
-          path.join(projectRoot, 'src')
+          path.join(projectRoot, 'src'),
+          path.join(projectRoot, 'node_modules/vue-awesome')
        ],
-        exclude: /node_modules/
+        exclude: /node_modules(?![\\/]vue-awesome[\\/])/
      },

For webpack 2+:

      {
        test: /\.js$/,
        loader: 'babel-loader',
-       include: [resolve('src'), resolve('test')]
+       include: [resolve('src'), resolve('test'), resolve('node_modules/vue-awesome')]
      }

If you are using bare webpack config, just do similar modifications make it work.

Using with Nuxt.js

When using Vue-Awesome on the server side with Nuxt.js, it may prompt Unexpected token import because Nuxt.js has configured an external option by default, which prevent files under node_modules from being bundled into the server bundle with only a few exceptions. We need to add vue-awesome into the whitelist as follows:

// Don't forget to
// npm i --save-dev webpack-node-externals
const nodeExternals = require('webpack-node-externals')
 
module.exports = {
  // ...
  build: {
    extend (config, { isServer }) {
      // ...
      if (isServer) {
        config.externals = [
          nodeExternals({
            // default value for `whitelist` is
            // [/es6-promise|\.(?!(?:js|json)$).{1,5}$/i]
            whitelist: [/es6-promise|\.(?!(?:js|json)$).{1,5}$/i, /^vue-awesome/]
          })
        ]
      }
    }
  }
}

Misc

If you are using vue-awesome/components/Icon (instead of the whole bundled version), Vue-Awesome won't import a single icon by default. Do not forget to import icons you want to use.

If these caveats don't help and there are no proper workarounds in earlier issues, please feel free to file a new one.

Styling

Dynamic sizing

You can make the icons scale dynamically according to your font-size by adding the following CSS:

.fa-icon {
  width: auto;
  height: 1em; /* or any other relative font sizes */
 
  /* You would have to include the following two lines to make this work in Safari */
  max-width: 100%;
  max-height: 100%;
}

Colors

The icon color is inherited from the font color of the parent element by default. You can easily change it to any other color by specifying the color property.

Local development

$ npm i
$ npm run dev

Open http://localhost:8080/demo to see the demo.

Updating icons

Don't touch files in src/icons but update assets/icons.json instead and run npm run icons to re-generate icon module files.

Registering custom icons

Simple case

You can register custom icons like this:

// ES Modules with vue-loader
import Icon from 'vue-awesome/components/Icon.vue'
 
Icon.register({
  baidu: {
    width: 23.868,
    height: 26,

More advanced cases

If your svg has more than one path or polygon, and/or you want to have a predefined style, you can register like this:

Paths

// ES Modules with vue-loader

Polygons

// ES Modules with vue-loader
import Icon from 'vue-awesome/components/Icon.vue'
 
Icon.register({
  vue: {
