Icon

Place scalable vector icons anywhere in your content.

UIkit comes with its own SVG icon system and a comprehensive library, which comprises a growing number of elegant outline icons. This component injects SVGs into the site, so that they adopt color and can be styled with CSS.


Usage

Make sure to include the icon library script, for more details see the installation instructions.

<script src="uikit/dist/js/uikit-icons.min.js"></script>

To apply this component, add the uk-icon attribute to a <span> or <a> element. To display the actual icon, you need to append the icon: NAME parameter to the attribute. Et voilà, you have a vector icon which inherits color just like your text does.

<span uk-icon="icon: check"></span>

<a href="" uk-icon="icon: heart"></a>

If icon is the only option in the attribute value, you can also use uk-icon="NAME"

<span uk-icon="heart"></span>
  • <span class="uk-margin-small-right" uk-icon="check"></span>
    
    <a href="" uk-icon="heart"></a>

Ratio

Add the ratio: 2 parameter to the uk-icon attribute to double its size – or any other number, depending on how big you want you icon to be.

<span uk-icon="icon: check; ratio: 2"></span>
  • <span class="uk-margin-small-right" uk-icon="icon: check; ratio: 2"></span>
    <span uk-icon="icon: check; ratio: 3.5"></span>

To reset the default link styling to a more muted color when using an icon inside an anchor, add the .uk-icon-link class.

<a href="" class="uk-icon-link" uk-icon="heart"></a>
  • <a href="#" class="uk-icon-link uk-margin-small-right" uk-icon="copy"></a>
    <a href="#" class="uk-icon-link uk-margin-small-right" uk-icon="file-edit"></a>
    <a href="#" class="uk-icon-link" uk-icon="trash"></a>

Button modifier

Use the modifier .uk-icon-button class on an <a> element to create an icon button, which can be used for social icons.

<a href="" class="uk-icon-button" uk-icon="twitter"></a>
  • <a href="" class="uk-icon-button uk-margin-small-right" uk-icon="twitter"></a>
    <a href="" class="uk-icon-button  uk-margin-small-right" uk-icon="facebook"></a>
    <a href="" class="uk-icon-button" uk-icon="google-plus"></a>

Image modifier

You can also make any background image scale to the size of an icon. Just add the .uk-icon-image class and a background image path.

  • <span class="uk-icon uk-icon-image" style="background-image: url(images/dark.jpg);"></span>
