Used to generate svg sprite map.


  • Preloading All icons are generated when the project is running, and you only need to operate dom once.
  • High performance Built-in cache, it will be regenerated only when the file is modified.

Installation (yarn or npm)

node version: >=12.0.0

vite version: >=2.0.0

yarn add vite-plugin-svg-icons -D


npm i vite-plugin-svg-icons -D


  • Configuration plugin in vite.config.ts
import viteSvgIcons from 'vite-plugin-svg-icons';
import path from 'path';

export default () => {
  return {
    plugins: [
        // Specify the icon folder to be cached
        iconDirs: [path.resolve(process.cwd(), 'src/icons')],
        // Specify symbolId format
        symbolId: 'icon-[dir]-[name]',
  • Introduce the registration script in src/main.ts
import 'virtual:svg-icons-register';

Here the svg sprite map has been generated

How to use in components

Vue way


  <svg aria-hidden="true">
    <use :xlink:href="symbolId" :fill="color" />

  import { defineComponent, computed } from 'vue';

  export default defineComponent({
    name: 'SvgIcon',
    props: {
      prefix: {
        type: String,
        default: 'icon',
      name: {
        type: String,
        required: true,
      color: {
        type: String,
        default: '#333',
    setup(props) {
      const symbolId = computed(() => `#${props.prefix}-${}`);
      return { symbolId };

icons Directory Structure

# src/icons

- icon1.svg
- icon2.svg
- icon3.svg
- dir/icon1.svg


    <SvgIcon name="icon1"></SvgIcon>
    <SvgIcon name="icon2"></SvgIcon>
    <SvgIcon name="icon3"></SvgIcon>
    <SvgIcon name="dir-icon1"></SvgIcon>

  import { defineComponent, computed } from 'vue';

  import SvgIcon from './components/SvgIcon.vue';
  export default defineComponent({
    name: 'App',
    components: { SvgIcon },

React is used in the same way. Just modify the component to Jsx component

Get all SymbolId

import ids from 'virtual:svg-icons-names';
// => ['icon-icon1','icon-icon2','icon-icon3']


Parameter Type Default Description
iconDirs string[] - Need to generate the icon folder of the Sprite image
symbolId string icon-[dir]-[name] svg symbolId format, see the description below
svgoOptions boolean|SvgoOptions true svg compression configuration, can be an objectOptions




svg file name


The svg of the plug-in will not generate hash to distinguish, but distinguish it by folder.

If the folder corresponding to iconDirs contains this other folder


Then the generated SymbolId is written in the comment

# src/icons
- icon1.svg # icon-icon1
- icon2.svg # icon-icon2
- icon3.svg # icon-icon3
- dir/icon1.svg # icon-dir-icon1
- dir/dir2/icon1.svg # icon-dir-dir2-icon1


Although the use of folders to distinguish between them can largely avoid the problem of duplicate names, there will also be svgs with multiple folders and the same file name in iconDirs.

This needs to be avoided by the developer himself



cd ./example

yarn install

yarn serve
