All available icons (744)

If, like me, you're tired of copying 5 images (ldpi, mdpi, hdpi, xhdpi, xxhdpi) for each icon you want to use in your app, for each color you want to use them with android-material-icons can help you.


About

android-material-icons allows you to include any of the Material Design 2.1.1 icons by Google packed by Sergey Kupletsky in your texts, your ActionBar, and even in your EditTexts. Icons are infinitely scalable, and customizable with shadows and everything you can do on texts.

Special thanks to Joan Zapata for his android-iconify project since this is mostly a copy :)

Get started #1

If you need icons on a TextView, use the { } syntax. You can put any text around it and have more than one icon in the text. Note that the shadows apply to the icons as well.

<IconTextView
    android:text="{zmdi-android}"
    android:shadowColor="#22000000"
    android:shadowDx="3"
    android:shadowDy="3"
    android:shadowRadius="1"
    android:textSize="90dp"
    android:textColor="#FF33B5E5"
    ... />

You can either use IconTextView / ButtonTextView or use any TextView and then programmatically call Iconify.addIcons(myTextView);.

Get started #2

If you need an icon in an ImageView or in your ActionBar, then you should use IconDrawable. Again, icons are infinitely scalable and will never get fuzzy!

// Set an icon in the ActionBar
menu.findItem(R.id.share).setIcon(
   new IconDrawable(this, IconValue.zmdi_share)
   .colorRes(R.color.ab_icon)
   .actionBarSize());

Design-time preview ( maybe working)

  1. Copy material font file (do not rename it) to your $ANDROID_SDK/platforms/android-$N/data/fonts/ folder for each platform $N available.
  2. Assign attribute hacky_preview like this:
<com.malinskiy.materialicons.widget.IconTextView
            xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:text="{zmdi-android}"
            android:textSize="48dp"
            app:hacky_preview="true"/>

Get it

Gradle:

repositories {
    ...
    mavenCentral()
    ...
}
...
dependencies {
    ...
    compile 'com.malinskiy:materialicons:1.0.2'
    ...
}
