Bootstrap Glyphicons

Glyphicons are the icon fonts that are used in web projects. Bootstrap provides 260 Glyphicons from the Glyphicons Halflings set.

Some examples of Glyphicons are:

  • Envelope glyphicon
  • Print glyphicon
  • Search glyphicon
  • Download glyphicon etc.

Glyphicons Syntax

  1. <span class=“glyphicon glyphicon-name”></span>

To create the desired Glyphicon, the “name” part of the syntax must be replaced accordingly.

For example: If you want to create “envelope” glyphicon, then you must write the following syntax:

  1. <span class=“glyphicon glyphicon-envelope”></span>
