Why so smallious?

Bytes cost money. They cost money to store, transport, and process. Simplicity should be our goal in all endeavours.

Scream if you want to go smaller

These files were edited by hand in Inkscape, Illustrator, or a text editor, then were minified using Yann Armelin’s SVG Path Editor, svgo, and svgcleaner. Further smallification may be possible. Try it!

  • Each of these has an xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" in the <svg> tag. This isn’t strictly necessary – but some web browsers won’t display them as an image without it.
  • Rounded corners can be dropped – rx="80" – the effect can be done in CSS if you want.
  • The background colour can also be excluded if you’re including it elsewhere.
  • Colours can be simplified. #FF0000 becomes red.
  • The precision of the paths is mostly 0 decimal places. A few logos have 1 or 2 dp to make them look more accurate. The precision can be reduced if necessary.

Think the icons look wrong? Compare them against the official logos. If they still look wrong, tell me by raising an issue!

Android Vector Drawables

Icons also available as Android Vector Drawables, so you can easily use them in Android apps.

They are converted using Android Studio and are not guaranteed to be under 1KB.

To convert in Android Studio, go to Tools Resource Manager Drawable + Import Drawables then select the SVGs.

Note Android Studio doesn’t like rounded corners. Before importing, run sed -i '/rx="15%"/d' ./*.svg

Submitting Icons

I’d love you to submit something ? The rules are simple, your icon must:

  • be under 1024 bytes. That is, the maximum file size is 1023 bytes. No arguments.
  • fit inside a circle with radius 256 pixels. Set rx="50%" to check.
  • represent a popular service’s current logo.

Template

At a minimum, your icon needs these components:

<svg
   xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
   aria-label="..." role="img"
   viewBox="0 0 512 512">
   <rect
      width="512" height="512"
      rx="15%"
      fill="#fff"/>
   ...
</svg>

Icon accessibility

The super tiny icons are accessible by default. Each icon has:

  • role="img", to expose the <svg> elements as images in the browser’s accessibility tree
  • aria-label="XYZ" (where XYZ is the icon’s brand name), to give the icon an accessible name

Note: if using the <svg> as the src for an <img> element, the alt attribute should still be used on the <img> element because the ARIA is not recognised in this context.

CSS-Tricks has also an article about accessible SVG icons.

Guidelines

This is the standard guideline. Use this to help with sizing your icons and they will look good no matter what border radius is chosen.

A template for logos

  • Green is the safe zone, where the main body of the icon should be.
  • Yellow is like a road shoulder, it is there if more space is needed. It should be used for protruding elements, like corners or ornaments.
  • Red is off limits. It should not be touched by the icons. Red is also how a circular icon would look.

Installation

npm install --save super-tiny-icons

Usage

The old-school way:

<img src="./node_modules/super-tiny-icons/images/svg/github.svg" />

The modern way, the React (JSX) example:

import logo from "super-tiny-icons/images/svg/github.svg";

<img src={logo} />;

The demo repository bootstrapped with create-react-app: create-react-app-super-tiny-icons

Where possible, they retain their original licenses. Some logos may be subject to copyright and trademark laws, but these files are small enough to memorise.
