The QIcon component allows you to easily insert icons within other components or any other area of your pages. Quasar currently supports: Material Icons , Font Awesome, Ionicons, MDI, Eva Icons and Themify Icons.


// quasar.conf.js

return {
  framework: {
    // not needed if using auto-import feature:
    components: [



Make sure that you installed the icon library that you are using, otherwise it won’t show up!

Size & colors

All icons are webfont icons. This means that you can change size by manipulating font-size CSS property. And also, they inherit the current CSS text color used.


For icon properties on different Quasar components you won’t have the means to specify an icon for each platform, but you can achieve the same effect with:

  :icon="$q.platform.is.ios ? 'settings' : 'ion-ios-gear-outline'"
Standard sizes

Images instead of webfont

You can also make an icon point to an image URL instead of relying on any webfont, by using the img: prefix.

All icon related props of Quasar components can make use of this.

<q-icon name="img:https://cdn.quasar.dev/logo/svg/quasar-logo.svg" />
<q-btn icon="img:https://cdn.quasar.dev/logo/svg/quasar-logo.svg" ... />
<q-icon name="img:statics/my/path/to/some.svg" />


Remember that you can place images in your /src/statics folder too and point to them. You don’t always need a full URL.

This is not restricted to SVG only. You can use whatever image type you want (png, jpg, …):

<q-icon name="img:statics/bla/bla/my.png" />
<q-btn icon="img:statics/bla/bla/my.jpg" ... />
<q-input clearable clear-icon="img:statics/bla/bla/my.gif" ... />

It is also possible to inline the image (svg, png, jpeg, gif…) and dynamically change its style (svg):

<q-icon name="img:data:image/svg+xml;charset=utf8,<svg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' height='140' width='500'><ellipse cx='200' cy='80' rx='100' ry='50' style='fill:yellow;stroke:purple;stroke-width:2' /></svg>" />
Dynamic SVG

You can also base64 encode an image and supply it. The example below is with a QBtn, but the same principle is involved when dealing with any icon prop or with QIcon:

<q-btn icon="
