Getting started with Open Iconic


Displaying Open Iconic's SVGs are a snap. Just treat them like your typical image and away you go! Pro tip: Don't forget the alt attribute.

<img src="/open-iconic/svg/icon-name.svg" alt="icon name">

SVG Sprite

Open Iconic also comes in a SVG sprite which allows you to display all the icons in the set with a single request. It's like an icon font, without being a hack. Adding an icon from an SVG sprite is a little different than what you're used to, but it's still not a problem. You'll need to add the icon sprite to the DOM in order support backwards browsers like Internet Explorer. Luckily, SVGInjector makes that a snap. Read more about this process here.

Tip: To make your icons easily style able, we suggest adding a general class to the <svg> tag and a unique class name for each different icon in the <use> tag.

  <script src="svg-injector.min.js"></script>

    // Elements to inject
    var mySVGsToInject = document.querySelectorAll('.iconic-sprite');

    // Do the injection
  <img src="open-iconic.svg" class="iconic-sprite" style="display:none;" />

  <svg viewBox="0 0 8 8" class="icon">
    <use xlink:href="#account-login" class="icon-account-login"></use>

Sizing icons only needs basic CSS. All the icons are in a square format, so just set the <svg> tag with equal width and height dimensions.

.icon {
  width: 16px;
  height: 16px;

Coloring icons is even easier. All you need to do is set the fill rule on the <use> tag.

.icon-account-login {
  fill: #f00;


Icon fonts are a great fallback for SVG—and our font is pretty great.

<link href="/open-iconic/font/css/open-iconic.css" rel="stylesheet">
<span class="oi" data-glyph="icon-name" title="icon name" aria-hidden="true"></span>

Bootstrap Font

Use Bootstrap? We have a collection of stylesheets which are designed to work perfectly with it.

<link href="/open-iconic/font/css/open-iconic-bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet">
<span class="oi oi-icon-name" title="icon name" aria-hidden="true"></span>

Foundation Font

Iconic also works for Foundation and functions just like Foundation's icon font.

<link href="/open-iconic/font/css/open-iconic-foundation.css" rel="stylesheet">
<span class="fi-icon-name" title="icon name" aria-hidden="true"></span>
