The latest version is v2.6.0 (updated 24. June 2016.)
NEW! The 525icons css and font files are now available at
jsdelivr.com The free super-fast CDN for developers and webmasters.
You no longer need to add the font files on your own server. It's enough to just link the css file with the link below:
<link rel="stylesheet" type='text/css' href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/525icons/2.6.0/525icons.min.css">
If you want to place the font files on your own server, make sure the entire fonts directory from the zip-file '525icons.zip' is copied into your project. You will need the files:
The css file must be in the same directory as the fonts. If not, you have to make changes in the code.
<head> of your html, reference the location to your 525icons.css and fonts.
<link rel="stylesheet" type='text/css' href="path/to/fonts/525icons.css">
You do not need the file 525icons.otf, unless you want to install it on your OS.
How to place the icons in your html-file:
If you are familiar with the use of the Font Awesome web font, the 525icons css code has some differences.
Like Font Awesome, 525icons is designed to be used with the inline element:
The icons are placed by adding the CSS prefix
'ux' plus the
'ico-' class prefix in front of the icons name,
like in this example:
<i class="ux ico-yin-yang"></i>
And you may add additional classes, like here:
<i class="ux ico-yin-yang ux-2x black bg-white img-circle"></i>
You may further investigate all the different css-codes in use, inside this file: view source code and 525icons.css.
To use the 525icons OTF font in desktop applications, you have to install the font on your system. When installing the font or viewing it, the operating system may not show all the glyphs in the font. In most cases only the basic Latin characters are shown.
