gulp-iconfont-css

Generate (S)CSS file for icon font created with Gulp

Warning

The latest version of gulp-iconfont emits a codepoints event (see https://github.com/nfroidure/gulp-iconfont/pull/4) which should likely be used instead of the workflow described below. However, it will continue to work as expected. The future of this plugin will be discussed in https://github.com/backflip/gulp-iconfont-css/issues/9.

Usage

First, install gulp-iconfont-css as a development dependency:

npm install --save-dev gulp-iconfont-css

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js:

var iconfont = require('gulp-iconfont');
var iconfontCss = require('gulp-iconfont-css');

var fontName = 'Icons';

gulp.task('iconfont', function(){
  gulp.src(['app/assets/icons/*.svg'])
    .pipe(iconfontCss({
      fontName: fontName,
      path: 'app/assets/css/templates/_icons.scss',
      targetPath: '../../css/_icons.scss',
      fontPath: '../../fonts/icons/'
    }))
    .pipe(iconfont({
      fontName: fontName
     }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('app/assets/fonts/icons/'));
});

gulp-iconfont-css works well with gulp-iconfont but you can use it in a more modular fashion by directly using gulp-svgicons2svgfont, gulp-svg2tff, gulp-ttf2eot and/or gulp-ttf2woff.
