Components

Icon

Icons symbolize common actions, features, and themes throughout our app.

Icons should be used intentionally and be paired with text, when possible, for accessibility. Icons can function as both interactive and static elements.

Icon has access to the full Seeds color palette when special circumstances call for it.

Static icons

Icons can act solely as visual indicators.

Stateful icons

Icons can also represent the state of a relative feature. Stateful icons use the Icon.Toggle component. Icon.Toggle provides users with feedback that an action has occurred as well as ensures a smooth transition when toggling between different icons.

Off

Stateful icons in an “off” state utilize outlined icons. This means our actions are more accessible by allowing us to transition fill and color.

On

Icons that are toggled “on” become filled and change to our primary blue.700.

Disabled

Icons that are disabled rely on the Button disabled state, opacity: 0.4.

Tooltips

Tooltips provide new and existing users with legible text that makes the meaning of an icon immediately clear. As Sprout uses primarily symbolic iconography to create conventions, Sprout users are never left guessing the meaning or state of an icon because they, or their computer, are able to read and understand it’s meaning.

State

Tooltip displays what the icon means and what it will do when clicked.

Information

Tooltip displays information connected to an otherwise static icon.

Accessibility

The visual presentation of graphical objects that are essential for understanding content or functionality have a contrast ratio of at least 4.5 : 1 against the adjacent color(s), except for the following:

Add icons

Font Awesome is a library of nearly 3,000 icons designed by a team of professional iconographers. If our icon library doesn’t have what you need, you can add an icon from Font Awesome.

Get started by finding the new icon on Font Awesome’s website. Once identified, you can download the library and locate the corresponding source SVG file or download the individual file directly from the detail page.

downloading an icon from FA
Note: Exporting Font Awesome SVG files from design software can cause unintended side effects. Please provide developers with the source SVG file from Font Awesome"s library when possible.

If you find that your unique needs are not met by Font Awesome, please reach out to the design systems team about custom solutions.

Naming icons

In a high level icon library that spans across numerous products, proper, easy to understand naming is essential. See naming guidelines detailed below:

  • Use a hyphen “-” as the delimiter between words e.g. arrow-up.
  • Use lowercase rather than UPPERCASE, camelCase, or PascalCase.
  • Solid icons are named icon-name.svg.
  • Outline icons append -outline to the name, e.g., icon-name-outline.svg.
  • Use generic names for global, multi-purpose icons.
  • Use specific names for product and feature specific icons.
