Support CoreUI Development

CoreUI is an MIT-licensed open source project and is completely free to use. However, the amount of effort needed to maintain and develop new features for the project is not sustainable without proper financial backing.

You can support our Open Source software development in the following ways:

  • Buy the CoreUI PRO, and get access to PRO components, and dedicated support.
  • Became a sponsor, and get your logo on files or each site of this documentation
  • Give us a star ⭐️ on Github.

CoreUI Icons

CoreUI Icons is an open-source icon set with more than 500 icons in multiple formats SVG, PNG, and Webfonts. CoreUI Icons are beautifully crafted symbols for common actions and items. You can use them in your digital products for web or mobile app.



npm install @coreui/icons --save


yarn add @coreui/icons

Or, you can also clone or download this repository as zip.


Basic Use

You can place CoreUI Icons just about anywhere using a CSS style prefix and the icon’s name. CoreUI Icons are designed to be used with inline elements ex. <i> or <span>.

Please use cil- prefix for linear icons, cib- prefix for brand icons, and cif- prefix for flag icons.

<i class="cil-energy icon icon-xxl"></i>
<i class="cib-twitter icon icon-xxl"></i>

SVG Sprites

SVG sprites let you quickly use vector icons in your website. We have prepared all the icon set styles into their own SVG sprites.

Place sprite files with the rest of your static files, like images and styles, in your project. Make sure to add a proper path to the SVG sprite file, and use the fragment identifier specific to the SVG icon or symbol you want to display.

  <use xlink:href="path/to/free.svg#cil-airplane-mode"></use>
  <use xlink:href="path/to/brand.svg#cib-twitter"></use>
  <use xlink:href="path/to/flag.svg#cif-us"></use>

SVG Symbols

When you download your icon set, it comes with a symbols directory that contains SVG icon definitions. These icons can be referenced and used as inline SVGs like so:

<!-- Define the symbols -->
<symbol id="cil-apple" viewBox="0 0 24 24">

<!-- Use the defined symbols -->
  <use xlink:href="#cil-apple"></use>

It is also possible to link to an external SVG containing the definitions:

<svg class="c-icon">
  <use xlink:href="path/to/free-symbol-defs.svg#cil-apple"></use>

Referencing an external SVG has the advantage that your icons get cached, with one HTTP request. But the external SVG and the HTML should be served from the same domain. This approach works fine in modern browsers except for IE 9+. In order to support IE 9+, You should use /js/svgxuse.js or /js/svgxuse.min.js. This polyfill detects if the icons are loaded properly; if they aren’t, it sends one HTTP request to fetch and cache symbol definitions.

CoreUI Icons PRO

If our free icon set is insufficient you can buy CoreUI Icons Pro with more than 4000 icons, and more styles - Solid, Duo-Tone and Linear.
