Note: Due to lack of time, Iconify is no longer maintained and icon packs are outdated. I'd be very happy to welcome a new contributor, please reach me on twitter @JoanZap if by any chance you're interested. ????

Iconify offers you a huge collection of vector icons to choose from, and an intuitive way to add and customize them in your Android app. It has been introduced in this blog post which is a good place to get started.


Install

Pick any number of modules and declare them in your Application.

dependencies {
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-fontawesome:2.2.2' // (v4.5)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-entypo:2.2.2' // (v3,2015)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-typicons:2.2.2' // (v2.0.7)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-material:2.2.2' // (v2.0.0)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-material-community:2.2.2' // (v1.4.57)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-meteocons:2.2.2' // (latest)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-weathericons:2.2.2' // (v2.0)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-simplelineicons:2.2.2' // (v1.0.0)
    compile 'com.joanzapata.iconify:android-iconify-ionicons:2.2.2' // (v2.0.1)
}
public class MyApplication extends Application {

    @Override
    public void onCreate() {
        super.onCreate();
        Iconify
            .with(new FontAwesomeModule())
            .with(new EntypoModule())
            .with(new TypiconsModule())
            .with(new MaterialModule())
            .with(new MaterialCommunityModule())
            .with(new MeteoconsModule())
            .with(new WeathericonsModule())
            .with(new SimpleLineIconsModule())
            .with(new IoniconsModule());
    }
}

Show icons in text widgets

If you need to put an icon on a TextView or a Button, use the { } syntax. The icons act exactly like the text, so you can apply shadow, size and color on them!

<com.joanzapata.iconify.widget.IconTextView
    android:text="I {fa-heart-o} to {fa-code} on {fa-android}"
    android:shadowColor="#22000000"
    android:shadowDx="3"
    android:shadowDy="3"
    android:shadowRadius="1"
    android:textSize="40sp"
    android:textColor="#FF..."
    ... />

Icon options

  • Shall you need to override the text size of a particular icon, the following syntax is supported {fa-code 12px}, {fa-code 12dp}, {fa-code 12sp}, {fa-code @dimen/my_text_size}, and also {fa-code 120%}.
  • In the same way you can override the icon color using {fa-code #RRGGBB}, {fa-code #AARRGGBB}, or {fa-code @color/my_color}.
  • You can even easily spin an icon like so {fa-cog spin}.

Show an icon where you need a Drawable

If you need an icon in an ImageView or in your ActionBar menu item, then you should use IconDrawable. Again, icons are infinitely scalable and will never get fuzzy!

// Set an icon in the ActionBar
menu.findItem(R.id.share).setIcon(
   new IconDrawable(this, FontAwesomeIcons.fa_share)
   .colorRes(R.color.ab_icon)
   .actionBarSize());

Extensibility

In case you can't find the icon you want, you can extend the available icon directly from your app. All you need to do is to implement IconFontDescriptor with a .ttf file in your assets and provide the mapping between keys and special characters, then give it to Iconify.with(). You can use the FontAwesomeModule as an example.

There are no constraints on the icon keys, but I strongly suggest you use a unique prefix like my- or anything, to avoid conflicts with other modules. FYI, if there is a conflict, the first module declared with Iconify.with() has priority.

The only dependency you need if you want to use a custom icon is Iconify core.
