<bliss-icon> renders an icon to the page. This web component has been designed to render the icons from the Bliss Iconsets toolkit. Every icon component needs to have a name attribute.

By design, icons can only be rendered at 24x24 px (medium) or 48x48 px (large).

📦 Installation

⚠️ You'll need the Iconsets toolkit installed in order to use this component. You can find the installation instructions here.

To install this component, run:

yarn add @bliss-design-system/icon

🏎 Usage

To use this component, you'll need to register the component to the window's Custom Elements Registry. In order to achieve that, you'll want to call this function within your application's client-facing entry file:

import { blissRegisterIcon } from '@bliss-design-system/icon';

blissRegisterIcon(); // Registers <bliss-icon>

That will make the component available in your application and you can use it like this:

<!-- Render trash icon at medium size -->
<bliss-icon name="trash"></bliss-icon>


The component accepts the following properties:

nameStringSize of the icon componenttrueAvailable icons
sizeStringSize of the icon componentmediumfalsemedium or large


The <bliss-icon> component doesn't have any explicit styles. If you want to change the size of the component, you need to use the size attribute.

<!-- Render trash icon at large size -->
<bliss-icon name="trash" size="large"></bliss-icon>

By default, the icon will inherit its parent element color property. This means that if you are using a <bliss-icon> component inside a button and the text color is red, the icon will inherit this color value and will be red. However, if you wish to color the icon differently you can do so by doing the following:

bliss-icon {
  color: blue;

You can also use the pattern above to apply any other CSS properties to the bliss-icon element, but keep in mind that this won't change the svg inside the <bliss-icon>, it only affects the element itself.
