Tutorial :Is there a standard open icon library for web developers? [closed]



Question:

We are looking for an icon library that is open licensed. We want to use the icons as a prototype not the final version of the application, but they need to be open to use.

I don't know of any standard library, but I've found that http://iconfinder.net is a useful source of icons. License information is included with each, and you can view and download entire sets of icons under the same license.

I think famfamfam are great, but... I found the Iconza site the other day, and have been impressed with how easy it is to create a set of custom colored icons.

I tend to use Sanscons when I need some icons during development. They are free, simple, and let you change the color easily via CSS. There is a constrained set, so I do not spend too long hunting for the best one, but I can usually find a suitable match pretty quickly.

Because they are all the same color, they tend to blend in to the design unobtrusively.

Try DryIcons - they have a dual licensing scheme (free if you link to them, otherwise you need to pay a few bucks). They have quite a few icons sets, I like Coquette the most...


Solution:11

Nuvola is an open source icon library - used in the KDE project.

We just went through a similar decision at my company. Ended up using the Fugue icon set from Pinvoke.

It's free if you give credit, $50 otherwise.


Solution:13

I use www.iconfinder.com. You can filter the results to only show icons that permit commercial use without attribution. You can also filter by icon size.

Open Icon Library. thousands of free icons in one neatly organized zip-file (or .tar). all icons are available in the folowing formats: png (8x8 16x16 22x22 24x24 32x32 48x48 64x64 128x128) and ico (16x16 22x22 24x24 32x32 48x48)

If you choose to get the full package you get all icons as svg-vector files too.

I use this package all the time if i need some icons quickly.
