  • lucide

    Beautiful & consistent icon toolkit made by the community. Open-source project and a fork of Feather Icons.

    Thanksfully someone did which show also the beauty of the open source, it only took a few minutes for someone to volunteer and provide a correction, which the poster above could have done instead of complaining.


  • react-icons

    svg react icons of popular icon packs

    Glad to see it being featured here. Been a big fan since the beginning.

    Probably already mentioned before (lazy to scroll) but if you’re building something and need icons don’t just use one package.

    If you’re building in React or a compatible JSX library use react icons (https://react-icons.github.io/react-icons/).

    It lets you pick and choose from many packs (Feather included) and if you’re careful with your selections you can meet pretty much all needs in a cohesive way. Until you can afford an in house designer :P

  • Appwrite

  • feather

    Simply beautiful open source icons

    I contributed the RSS icon[1] to Feather a few years ago. The circle shape in the RSS icon is visually denser and deviates from all other shapes in the icon set. I apologize for breaking the constraints but in my defense, it looks much nicer this way
