Meronex Icons


Choose from thousands of popular open source SVG icon packs and add them easily to your React projects with meronex icons.


npm install @meronex/icons --save


Default Import

import FaBeer from '@meronex/icons/fa/FaBeer';
class Question extends React.Component {
render() {
return <h3> Lets go for a <FaBeer />? </h3>

Named Import

Use named imports only when you build supports tree shaking your generated your bundle size.
import { FaBeer } from '@meronex/icons/fa';
class Question extends React.Component {
render() {
return <h3> Lets go for a <FaBeer />? </h3>


Project Principles & Philosophy

  • Include as many useful and popular icon packs, we don't want to juggle between multiple libraries
  • Maintain backward compatibility, we don't want to refactor all our icons path due to a release
  • Do not assume tree shaking and allow both default and named exports, this should be left as choice
  • Do not bloat the node_modules folder and try to keep it within an acceptable range
  • Keep a reference to documentation site for each major release, we don't want to be forced to update because docs changed
  • Keep the project alive and ensure longevity, refactoring icons is neither fun nor productive

LTS & Release Management

The aim is to keep the version specific site up as a reference even after a major release for those who want to hold on updating to latest.

What results in a major release?

  1. Icon(s) added
  2. Icon(s) removed
  3. Icon(s) changed

A major release implies one or more icons have been changed thus requiring a new version of the preview site.


  • feat(icons): add spectrum icons
  • feat(preview): implement analyze on the copied icons, how many copied per pack, so we can get an idea of which packs are we using the most and then optimize
  • feat(preview): make the copy code string configurable depending on the icons being imported
  • feat: better typescript support
  • perf: allow adding individual packs such as @meronex/icons-fa this will allow for lighters node_modules
  • refactor: remove references for react_icons npm from the demo and preview site
  • refactor: remove references netlify since surged is used instead

  • case sensitive elimination of duplicate files to prevent missing modules error (9c834ea)

    Some build systems will report an error similar to:

    Cannot find file: 'GiIconName.js' does not match the corresponding name on disk: './node_modules/@meronex/icons/gi/GiIconname.js'.

    The cause of the error is that some SVG icons are added twice in the original icon source folder such as icon_name.svg and iconname.svg. After the name formatting, GiIconName and GIIconname will be considered duplicate and only one file will be created. This fix will prevent the processing of icons with a similar name within an icon pack.
