}

You can add configuration to package.json. #48

Using With Nodejs

const svgtofont = require('svgtofont');
const path = require('path');

API

import { createSVG, createTTF, createEOT, createWOFF, createWOFF2, createSvgSymbol, copyTemplate, createHTML } from 'svgtofont/lib/utils';

const options = { ... };

async function creatFont() {
  const unicodeObject = await createSVG(options); 
  const ttf = await createTTF(options); // SVG Font => TTF
  await createEOT(options, ttf); // TTF => EOT
  await createWOFF(options, ttf); // TTF => WOFF
  await createWOFF2(options, ttf); // TTF => WOFF2
  await createSvgSymbol(options); // SVG Files => SVG Symbol
}

options

svgtofont(options)

dist

Type: String
Default value: dist => fonts

The output directory.

outSVGReact

Type: Boolean
Default value: false

Output ./dist/react/, SVG generates react components.

git/git.svg

// ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

import React from 'react';
export const Git = props => (
  <svg viewBox="0 0 20 20" {...props}><path d="M2.6 10.59L8.38 4.8l1.69 -." fillRule="evenodd" /></svg>
);

outSVGPath

Type: Boolean
Default value: false

Output ./dist/svgtofont.json, The content is as follows:

{
  "adobe": ["M14.868 3H23v19L14.868 3zM1 3h8.138L1 22V3zm.182 11.997H13.79l-1.551-3.82H8.447z...."],
  "git": ["M2.6 10.59L8.38 4.8l1.69 1.7c-.24.85.15 1.78.93 2.23v5.54c-.6.34-1 .99-1..."],
  "stylelint": ["M129.74 243.648c28-100.109 27.188-100.5.816c2.65..."]
}

Or you can generate the file separately:

const { generateIconsSource } = require('svgtofont/src/generate');	
const path = require('path');	

async function generate () {	
  const outPath = await generateIconsSource({	
    src: path.resolve(process.cwd(), 'svg'),	
    dist: path.resolve(process.cwd(), 'dist'),	
    fontName: 'svgtofont',	
  });	
}	

generate();

src

Type: String
Default value: svg

output path

emptyDist

Type: String
Default value: false

Clear output directory contents

fontName

Type: String
Default value: iconfont

The font family name you want.

styleTemplates

Type: String Default value: undefined

The path of the templates, see src/styles or test/templates/styles to get reference about how to create a template, file names can have the extension .template, like a filename.scss.template

startUnicode

Type: Number
Default value: 0xea01

unicode start number

useNameAsUnicode

Type: Boolean
Default value: false

should the name(file name) be used as unicode? this switch allows for the support of ligatures.

let's say you have an svg with a file name of add and you want to use ligatures for it. you would set up your processing as mentioned above and turn on this switch.

{
  ...
  useNameAsUnicode: true
}

while processing, instead of using a single sequential char for the unicode, it uses the file name. using the file name as the unicode allows the following code to work as expected.

.icons {
  font-family: 'your-font-icon-name' !important;
  font-size: 16px;
  font-style: normal;
  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
  -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
}
<i class="icons">add</i>

as you add more svgs and process them into your font you would just use the same pattern.

<i class="icons">add</i>
<i class="icons">remove</i>
<i class="icons">edit</i>

classNamePrefix

Type: String
Default value: font name

Create font class name prefix, default value font name.
