Nuxt icon font generator

Note: This is Nuxt 3 compatible module only.


  • 🕵️‍♂️ Watches specified folder (and sub-folders) with SVG icons and generates fonts on change
  • 💅 Optimizes SVG files via SVGO
  • 🤯 Manual or browserslist based auto-detection of font formats to generate
  • 🏗️ Generates and injects custom properties (variables) with icon codes into pages, where SVG file name is used as a variable name
  • ❤️ Detects and generates the most popular font format as base64 to reduce page jump effect


  <p>I'm a text with icon!</p>
<style scoped lang="scss">
  p {
    &:before {
      content: var(--icon-font-house);
      font-family: "icon-font";

    targetDirPath: "icon-font",
    // font formats to generate, fallback to ["woff2"] in case browserslist is not used, example for manual configuration: ["svg", "ttf", "woff", "woff2", "eot"] in any order
    formats: getFontFormatsList(browserslist()),
    // Support of generating the most popular font as base64
    base64: false,
    // unicode symbol for first icon in iconfont (makes sense to change only if you're not going to use custom properties)
    unicode: "0xE900",
    // generated custom properties (variables) format. Other options are: "snake", "pascal", "camel", "header", "constant"
    case: "kebab"
