Documentation

The Octicon class takes two arguments. The first is the symbol of the icon, and the second is a hash of arguments representing html attributes

symbol (required)

This is the name of the octicon you want to use. For example alert. Full list of icons

Options

  • :height - When setting the height to a number, the icon will scale to that size. For example, passing 32, will calculate the width based on the icon's natural size.
  • :width - When setting the width to a number, the icon will scale to that size. For example, passing 32, will calculate the width based on the icon's natural size.

If both :width, :height are passed into the options hash, then the icon will be sized exactly at those dimensions.

Attributes

Once initialized, you can read a few properties from the icon.

symbol

Returns the string of the symbol name

icon = Octicons::Octicon.new("x")
icon.symbol
# "x"

path

Path returns the string representation of the path of the icon.

icon = Octicons::Octicon.new("x")
icon.path
# <path d="M7.48 8l3.75 3.75-1.48 1.48L6 9.48l-3.75 3.75-1.48-1.48L4.52 8 .77 4.25l1.48-1.48L6 6.52l3.75-3.75 1.48 1.48z"></path>

icon.options
# {:class=>"octicon octicon-x", :viewBox=>"0 0 12 16", :version=>"1.1", :width=>12, :height=>16, :"aria-hidden"=>"true"}
