dcs-icon-font

A generator that enables you to generate fonts from a set of SVG icons.

So you'll be able to use vectorial icons as a text font and manipulate them very easily.

It aims to make all the icons management easier and provide all the SVG features in a really flexible way. So you can write nice and clean CSS and HTML without polluting your code with SVG codes or src paths.

npm install dcs-icon-font

Or you can clone it and install all its dependencies:

git clone https://github.com/Exictos-DCS/dcs-icon-font.git
