Anyone else feeling déjà vu? It feels like not too long ago we were launching the Ionic Vue beta built with Vue 2. Given that the release of Vue 3 is quickly approaching, we thought this would be a perfect time to start preparing Ionic Vue for launch. Today, I am thrilled to announce the […]

Android and iOS app binaries must be digitally signed with a certificate before they can be installed onto a user’s device. This is required so that users can be confident that the app publisher actually is who they say they are. For iOS applications, these are created on Apple’s developer portal, and can be regenerated.

Web browsers provide a variety of data primitives that web developers use to manage, manipulate, and store data – from plain text, to files, images, videos and more. However, using them correctly and effectively can be confusing. One such example is converting a base64 string to a blob using JavaScript. A blob represents binary data […]

After five alphas over the last nine months, Bootstrap Icons has officially gone stable with our v1.0.0 release! We’re now over 1,100 icons and are on track to add hundreds more in our upcoming minor releases. This has been a labor of love and I’m thrilled to ship this latest update.

Since our fifth alpha two months ago, over a third of our icons have been redrawn as we fine-tuned paths and shapes. Much of the redrawing and improvements here came as preparation for an icon font, but regrettably that’s been pushed back to a v1.1.0 release as the tooling for generating fonts from SVGs has proven more difficult to get right.

1,100+ icons

Our first alpha had just over 200 icons, and here we are with 1,120 icons in our first stable release. And we’ll only have more in future releases.

All Bootstrap Icons


If you’ve been following along these last several months, you’ll know Bootstrap icons are SVG based. That makes them super easy to import, customize, and extend—no matter the project. While they’re part of the Bootstrap family, they can be used anywhere. That’s because they’re released under the MIT license.

Use them as embedded SVGs, as external assets with <img> tags, as an SVG sprite, or even embedded in your CSS. Head to the docs to learn more.


To get started, install via npm:

npm i bootstrap-icons

You can also download the release from GitHub, or download just the SVGs (without the rest of the repository files).


For the Figma users out there, you can also snag the icons from Figma.

Up next

We’ll revisit the icon font hopefully in time for our next v1.1.0 release. In addition, there are already another 200+ icons drawn and plans for even more after. We’ll continue to fine-tune and iterate on these icons, so keep the feedback and requests coming.
