Gem version

This rails helper lets you easily include svg octicons in your rails apps.


  1. Add this to your Gemfile

    gem 'octicons_helper'
  2. Use this tag in your erbs

    <%= octicon "alert", :height => 32, :class => "right left", :"aria-label" => "hi" %>

We recommend including the CSS in the @primer/octicons npm module. You can also npm install that package and include build/build.css in your styles.
