Bootstrap Icons full set

Also available in Figma.


Bootstrap Icons are packaged up and published to npm. We only include the processed SVGs in this package—it’s up to you and your team to implement. Read our docs at for usage instructions.

npm i bootstrap-icons --save


Depending on your setup, you can include Bootstrap Icons in a handful of ways.

  • Copy-paste SVGs as embedded HTML
  • Reference via <img> element
  • Use the SVG sprite
  • Include via CSS

See the docs for more information.


Build Status

Clone the repo, install dependencies, and start the Hugo server locally.

git clone https://github.com/twbs/icons/
cd icons
npm i
npm start

Then open http://localhost:4000 in your browser.

npm scripts

Here are some key scripts you’ll use during development. Be sure to look to our package.json for a complete list of scripts.

Script Description
start Alias for running docs-serve
docs-serve Starts a local Hugo server
pages Generates permalink pages for each icon with template Markdown
icons Processes and optimizes SVGs in icons directory

Adding SVGs

Once a new SVG icon has been added to the icons directory, you’ll need to optimize them. An npm script is used to:

  1. Optimize our SVGs with SVGO.
  2. Modify the SVGs source HTML, removing all attributes before setting new attributes and values in our preferred order.

Use npm run icons to run the script, run npm run pages to build permalink pages, complete those pages, and, finally, commit the results in a new branch for updating.


Documentation is published automatically when a new Git tag is published. See our GitHub Actions and package.json for more information.
