Unplugin Icons

Unplugin Icons is a plug-in that dynamically generates icon components.

You can use it to render icons if you are building an app using one of the following UI frameworks:

  • React, Preact
  • Vue 2.7+, Vue 3
  • Svelte
  • Solid
  • Astro
  • Qwik

With Unplugin Icons, you can easily use over 200,000 open source icons and custom icons with minimal code.

How does it work?

It is a plug-in that works with practically all modern build tools, generating components dynamically as needed.

function Demo() {
   return (
           Home icon: <HomeIcon />


Vue example

vue<script setup lang="ts">
import MdiHome from 'virtual:icons/mdi/home';

   <p>Home icon: <MdiHome /></p>
