Icônes FormWidget

Advantages of this form widget

Every time I use icon fonts, end users don't find them appealing, or even they don't find what they want. Styling was challenging, with SVG icons you can apply classes and style them as you want.

There are many excellent icon sets available, some are available only as fonts and almost all of them load entire set even if you are displaying just few icons.

Icônes combines all those icon sets (more than 100) that makes it possible to use many icons from different icon sets on same page or in same application using one form widget.

Icônes combines pixel perfect rendering of SVG with ease of use of glyph fonts, while offering more choice than any glyph font.

You don't need to load any dependency at all.

You can use Font Awesome, Material Design Icons, Unicons, Dashicons, Emoji, ... and many other icon sets on same page or application using one form widget.

Just after installation, Icon sets are not installed

   {{ my_var | iconify({ 'height' => 'auto'}) }}

Options detail

Key Description Default Options
class The css class to apply to the svg tag CSS class to apply
width, height Dimensions of icon. If only one attribute is set, another attribute will be set using icon's width/height ratio. If value is "auto", icon's original dimensions will be used. If both width and height are not set, height defaults to "1em". "1em" String such as "1em", "24px" or number.
hFlip, vFlip Flip icon horizontally and/or vertically. false true or "true" or "1" (string or boolean),
flip Alternative to "hFlip" and "vFlip" String, value can be "horizontal", "vertical" or "horizontal,vertical"
rotate Rotation. Value can be in degrees "90deg" (only 90, 180 and 270 rotations are available), percentages "25%" (25%, 50% and 75% are aliases of 90deg, 180deg and 270deg) or number 1-3 (1 - 90deg, 2 - 180deg, 3 - 270deg).
inline If true, code will include vertical-align style, making it behave like a glyph. false true or "true" or "1" (string or boolean),
color custom color string to replace currentColor. This is useful when using icon as background image because background image cannot use currentColor
box If true, icon will include extra rectangle matching its view box. false true or "true" or "1" (string or boolean)
align Alignment. This is useful if you have custom width and height set. Unlike other images, SVG keep aspect ratio (unless stated otherwise) when scaled. Value is comma or space separated string with possible strings (example: "left,top,crop"): [ left, right, center -> horizontal alignment ], [top, middle, bottom -> vertical alignment], [crop -> crop parts that go outside of boundaries], [meet -> scale icon down to fit entire icon (opposite of crop)]

use Chkilel\Icones\Classes\JsonIcon;

$icon = new JsonIcon($value);
$icon->iconify(['inline'=>true, 'height'=>36]);
