What is Lucide?
Lucide is an open-source icon library that provides 1000+ vector (svg) files for displaying icons and symbols in digital and non-digital projects. The library aims to make it easier for designers and developers to incorporate icons into their projects by providing several official packages to make it easier to use these icons in your project.
Lucide contains icons with different variants and states, allowing users to choose the most suitable icon for their needs. And if a desired icon isn't available yet, users can open a design request, and the Lucide community contributors will help provide new icons. With more icons to choose from, users have more options to work with in their projects. Complete Set of Icons
As new applications with specific features arise, Lucide aims to provide a complete set of icons for every project. The community follows a set of design rules when designing new icons. These rules maintain standards for the icons, such as recognizability, consistency in style, and readability at all sizes. While creativity is valued in new icons, recognizable design conventions are important to ensure that the icons are easily identifiable by users.
In addition to design, code is also important. Assets like icons can significantly increase bandwidth usage in web projects. With the growing internet, Lucide has a responsibility to keep their assets as small as possible. To achieve this, Lucide uses SVG compression and specific code architecture for tree-shaking abilities. After tree-shaking, you only ship the icons you used, which helps to keep software distribution size to a minimum.
Lucide's official packages are designed to work on different platforms, making it easier for users to integrate icons into their projects. The packages are available for various technologies, including Web (Vanilla), React, React Native, Vue, Vue 3, Svelte,Preact, Solid, Angular, NodeJS and Flutter.
