material_icons 1.1.0

Dart Material SVG Icons #

Optimized for Dart + SASS #

Material Design Icons are the official open-source icons featured in the Google Material Design specification. This project provides this icon-set for Dart.

What's cool #

Googles original version comes "only" with black or white SVGs.
material_icons allows you to theme your icons!!!
Tested with Chrome, Safari, FF + IE.


Usage #

  • Clone the "purple" example
    • Your main.scss should look something like this:
    $icon-color: nth($palette-primary, 2);
    @import "packages/material_icons/sass/svg-utils";
    @import "material_icons";
  • Open [this] page
    • Use Chrome or Safari for this!
  • Click on icon that you want to include in your project
  • Copy the _material-icons.scss section
  • Paste it into your _material-icons.scss
@import 'packages/material_icons/sass/action/svg/production/ic_account_box_18px';

.bg-ic_account_box_18px {
    @include svg-background("18");
    /* you can exclude or delete this line */
    @include svg-fallback("action/svg/production/ic_account_box_18px.svg","action/2x_web/ic_account_box_black_18dp.png","action/2x_web/ic_account_box_white_18dp.png","action/2x_web/ic_account_box_grey600_18dp.png");
    background-image: svg-ic_account_box_18px($icon-color);
  • Copy the index.html section
  • Paste it into your index.html
    <div class="bg-ic_favorite_24px svg-size-24 svg-bg"></div>
  • In main.scss define your icon-color: $icon-color : #9B30FF;
  • In web/styles: sass main.scss main.css -r ../packages/material_icons/sassext/urlencode.rb
  • and: autoprefixer main.css

Note: You may ask what the hack???? does that mean:
-r ../packages/material_icons/sassext/urlencode.rb
You are adding a custom ruby-function to sass - here it is urlencode(...).
The inline SVG get urlencoded and makes IE happy.

That's it.
Your page should look like [this] page

###Play with your index.html###

<body class="no-svg fallback-white">
    <div class="bg-ic_favorite_24px svg-size-24 svg-bg"></div>
    <div class="bg-ic_account_balance_24px svg-size-24 svg-bg fallback-grey"></div>
    <div class="bg-ic_accessibility_48px svg-size-48 svg-bg"></div>

no-svg - turns off svg and uses png's instead
fallback-white | fallback-black | fallback-grey - PNG color to use
This option can also be specified per div (line 3).
