Awesome!

A tip though, if you change your require to require('!!html-loader!./../../svg/' + this.icon + '.svg') (notice the !! in the beggining) then you can skip the whole webpack configuration.

I ended up shrinking it a bit thanks to @beijer.
Also changed the javascript to specifically select svg due to some of my svg files having comments at the top of the file.

<template>
    
      <div v-html="require('!!html-loader!./../../svg/zondicons/' + this.icon + '.svg')"></div>

</template>

<script>
export default {
    props: ['icon','addClass'],
    mounted() {
        this.$el.querySelector("svg").setAttribute("class", this.addClass)
    }
}
</script>

and to implement inside your vue component

<svg-icon 
       icon="fa-address-book"
       add-class="w14px h14px f-grey-light">
 </svg-icon>

Should output

<svg width="1792" height="1792" viewBox="0 0 1792 1792" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="w14px h14px f-grey-light">

This is so useful because you can now see what the svg instead of having preview it in the browser

Thank you guys for these useful examples. @blueoctopuswebdesigns you can simplify your usage a tad more.

...
mounted() {
    this.$el.removeAttribute('class');
    this.$el.firstChild.classList.add(...this.$vnode.data.staticClass.split(' '));
}
...

<svg-icon class="fill-current w-4 h-4" icon="fa-address-book" />

Hope this helps!

Thanks for this gist and great comments guys.

I also wanted to remove the container div and just render a <svg> tag. Here's a neat little trick to achieve that: this.$el.outerHTML = this.$el.innerHTML :)

I also added a v-once directive, because it's a static component. Here's the code I'm using:

<template>
    <div v-html="require('!!html-loader!./../../../svg/zondicons/' + this.icon + '.svg')" v-once></div>
</template>

<script>
    export default {
        props: ['icon'],
        mounted() {
            this.$el.firstChild.classList.add(...this.$el.className.split(' '));
            this.$el.firstChild.classList.add('fill-current');
            this.$el.outerHTML = this.$el.innerHTML;
        },
    };
</script>

Quick note: I'm using Zondicons that don't have the height and width attributes, that's why I don't have the lines that remove those attributes.

@calebporzio great article and nice solution!

A few things I've changed:

  • removed fill: currentColor; because in my case Material Icons have svg with nested paths, where fill is set instead. In this case, I added fill: currentColor to relevant paths in that svg.
  • instead of modifying vue.config.js (I'm working on vue-cli based project where webpack files aren't exposed), I've changed my require param to require(`!!html-loader!@/assets/icons/${icon}-icon.svg`), as mentioned by @beijer. This allows me to only use html-loader for icons, and leave img tags with svg sources alone.
  • I'm getting a Vue warning ([Vue warn]: Error in mounted hook: "TypeError: Cannot read property 'add' of undefined") when using firstChild, therefore changed svg selection to this.$el.querySelector('svg')
  • I've set <svg> style to display: block, which removes invisible margins, and svg icon fills parent element fully, and therefore there's no need to mess with alignment.
  • Added dynamic style prop to div wrapper: :style="{'font-size': size + 'px'}"

Hope this helps someone.

Btw, in case anyone wants to modify vue.config.js in order to configure webpack to use html-loader for svg files on vue-cli based project, instead of using in require('!!html-loader!...):

// vue.config.js
module.exports = {
  chainWebpack: (config) => {
    const svgRule = config.module.rule('svg');
    svgRule.uses.clear();
    svgRule
      .use('html-loader')
      .loader('html-loader')
      .options({
        minimize: true,
      });
  },
};

👋 the regex needs to be updated for Laravel Mix 4, it should be /(\.(png|jpe?g|gif|webp)$|^((?!font).)*\.svg$)/

This is a pretty amazing idea, the main draw back is that it now adds the entire icon set that I'm using to app.js, instead of extracting the data from the specific file. So remember to either make a stripped down version of only the icons that you need.
