On the use of icons
A very quick guide.
The icons used throughout this theme are partly custom-made, and partly come from the Iconoir library. More can be created or downloaded from the Iconoir website as svg files, and saved in
assets/svg for use in your website.
Here’s an overview of icons that already ship with the theme.
They can be used in two ways through Liquid tags. First, as simple glyphs for decorative purposes, as in the table above or in the contact section of the CV:
Second, as links:
Simple CSS allows you to modify many aspects of the icon’s appearance, including stroke width, color (with the
stroke property), and size (with
transform). Here is a usage example:
Each icon available from Iconoir is essentially a text file:
<?...?> tag at the beginning is useful for apps but not for a Jekyll website, and will sometimes show up as a string of text, so it needs to be deleted. This has already been done for the default icons, but remember to do it also for every additional icon you download.
