Wrapper of react-native-vector-icons to use dynamic types.


Add the dependency:

Pure React Native:

npm i react-native-dynamic-vector-icons
npm i react-native-vector-icons
react-native link # Yes! You still need to run this command to link the vector icons' assets
# iOS Only
npx pod-install

Expo Version:

"react-native-dynamic-vector-icons": "WrathChaos/react-native-dynamic-vector-icons#expo"

Peer Dependencies

IMPORTANT! You need install them.
"react": ">= 16.x",
"react-native": ">= 0.55.x",
"react-native-vector-icons": ">= 6.x.x"


import Icon from "react-native-dynamic-vector-icons";

Basic Usage

  onPress={() => {}}

Bundled Icon Sets

Browse all.

Installation for iOS and Android

List of all available fonts to copy & paste in info.plist (Most Stable)

Note: you need to recompile your project after adding new fonts, also ensure that they also appear under Copy Bundle Resources in Build Phases.

If you want to use the TabBar/NavigatorIOS integration or use getImageSource/getImageSourceSync, then you need to add RNVectorIcons.xcodeproj to Libraries and add libRNVectorIcons.a to Link Binary With Libraries under Build Phases. More info and screenshots about how to do this is available in the React Native documentation.

$ react-native link react-native-vector-icons

Note: Some users are having trouble using this method, try one of the others if you are too.

Option: With CocoaPods

Add the following to your Podfile and run pod update:

pod 'RNVectorIcons', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-vector-icons'

Edit Info.plist as described above.

If you are using use_frameworks! in your Podfile you instead need to dynamically load the icon font by doing Icon.loadFont() when boostrapping your application.

Note: You must be consuming React itself via CocoaPods for this to work, see React Native documentation on how to set that up.


Option: With Gradle (recommended)

This method has the advantage of fonts being copied from this module at build time so that the fonts and JS are always in sync, making upgrades painless.

Edit android/app/build.gradle ( NOT android/build.gradle ) and add the following:

apply from: "../../node_modules/react-native-vector-icons/fonts.gradle"

To customize the files being copied, add the following instead:

project.ext.vectoricons = [
    iconFontNames: [ 'MaterialIcons.ttf', 'EvilIcons.ttf' ] // Name of the font files you want to copy

apply from: "../../node_modules/react-native-vector-icons/fonts.gradle"

Option: Manually

  • Copy the contents in the Fonts folder to android/app/src/main/assets/fonts (note lowercase fonts folder).
Integrating library for getImageSource support

These steps are optional and only needed if you want to use the Icon.getImageSource function.

  • Edit android/settings.gradle to look like this (without the +): = 'MyApp'
    include ':app'
    + include ':react-native-vector-icons'
    + project(':react-native-vector-icons').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-vector-icons/android')
  • Edit android/app/build.gradle (note: app folder) to look like this:

    apply plugin: ''
    android {
    dependencies {
      compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
      compile ""
      compile "com.facebook.react:react-native:+"  // From node_modules
    + compile project(':react-native-vector-icons')
  • Edit your (deep in android/app/src/main/java/...) to look like this (note two places to edit):

    package com.myapp;
    + import com.oblador.vectoricons.VectorIconsPackage;
      protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
        return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
          new MainReactPackage()
    +   , new VectorIconsPackage()
