Icon Sets

Currently, there are three icon sets in the


Next release:

  • Over 500 new icons
  • A new set for dark backgrounds (preview)
  • CDNJS hosting

npm install file-icon-vectors


bower install file-icon-vectors

Each set has its own CSS prefix:

  • cla
    - Classic
  • viv
    - Vivid
  • sqo
    - Square Outline

The format for CSS classes is


If you want to override the size of the icons, you can do so with CSS:

Alternatively, you may also use

to modify the icon sizes:

Catalog JSON

Each icon set has a

file that includes all icons included in the library. You can optionally use this to check for files that exist, and where missing, set an alternate icon.

For example, reads this file to dynamically create the icon lists for both release and development versions.

Generic icons include


:rotating_light: BREAKING CHANGE: I will be removing the generic

from each collection in favor of the upcoming "Extra" set. Follow this repo if you'd like to be notified when that happens.

Special Thanks

Even though I'm paying for them, thanks also to Adobe, The Noun Project, FlatIcon, Icons8 and iconscout for providing great tools and services. :+1: :smile:
