Import raw SVG files into your code, optimising with SVGO, and removing ID namespace conflicts.

What it do

1. Turns import statements into inline SVG strings

So this:

import someSvg from 'some-svg.svg';

Becomes this:

var someSvg = '<svg width="50" height="50" viewBox="0 0 50 50" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"><title>home</title><path d="M37.6 24.104l-4.145-4.186v-6.389h-3.93v2.416L26.05 12.43a1.456 1.456 0 0 0-2.07 0L12.43 24.104a1.488 1.488 0 0 0 0 2.092c.284.288.658.431 1.031.431h1.733V38h6.517v-8.475h6.608V38h6.517V26.627h1.77v-.006c.36-.01.72-.145.995-.425a1.488 1.488 0 0 0 0-2.092" fill="#191919" fill-rule="evenodd" id="someSvg-someID"/></svg>';

So you can do something like this maybe:

import React from 'react';
import someSvg from 'some-svg.svg';
 
const NaughtyUsage = () => (
  <span
    dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{
      __html: someSvg,
    }}
  />
);

2. Namespaces id’s to prevent conflicts

If you inline a lot of SVGs you might get namespace conflicts, which could be really annoying if you're styling your SVG in CSS and whatnot. This plugin solves that by combining some regex trickery with SVGO's cleanupIDs plugin.

So given this simple cheese.svg file:

<svg><circle cx="10" cy="10" r="50" id="someCircle"></circle></svg>

Which you then import like so:

import wheelOfCheese from 'cheese.svg';

You get the following output:

var wheelOfCheese = '<svg><circle cx="10" cy="10" r="50" id="wheelOfCheese-someCircle"></circle></svg>';

If you want to disable this feature, just pass an empty plugins list as a plugin option to SVGO in your babel settings (you could also pass { cleanupIDs: true }, which is just the SVGO default).

Installation

npm install --save-dev babel-plugin-inline-svg

Usage

Via .babelrc (Recommended)

.babelrc

{
  "plugins": [
    "inline-svg"
  ]
}

Options

  • ignorePattern - A pattern that imports will be tested against to selectively ignore imports.
  • svgo - svgo options. Example .babelrc:
 
{
  "plugins": [
    [
      "inline-svg",
      {
        "ignorePattern": /ignoreAThing/,
        "svgo": {
          "plugins": [
            {"cleanupIDs": false},
            {
              "removeDoctype": true,
            }
          ]
 
        }
      }
    ]
  ]
}
 

Note: This babel plugin disables the cleanupIDs SVGO plugin by default (to facilitate the ID namespacing). Pass your own SVGO options to override this default.

Via CLI

$ babel --plugins inline-react-svg script.js

Via Node API

require('babel-core').transform('code', {
  plugins: ['inline-react-svg']
}) // => { code, map, ast };

How it works

The babel part is mostly copy-pasta'd from inline-react-svg (thanks @kesne!), with

Big thanks to inline-react-svg, which this project is based on.
