Graphic Swapping out images (sprite) for SVGs... would people use/like?

Discussion in 'Resource and Add-on Discussions' started by Trained Monkey, Jan 29, 2014.

  1. Once in a while I'm swapping out icons and images on my XF install with SVG images (with PNG fallback), wondered if people would be interested in this as both the resource (graphics) and a little tutorial in doing it with your own XF install?

    See below for example (RSS/Feed icon, New window and Node icons already converted/changed and screenshot taken "zoomed")...

    Sounds great. Would like to try it if possible.
    How is the size compared to the stock?
  3. Not checked that yet for the overall total, but so far the CSS file containing the SVG data is about 15kb including the forum nodes for read/unread the feed icon and the new window icon. Including the addition my site icon/logo it's 23kb.

    any reason you prefer this approach over something like fontawesome icon?
