SVG & Custom Icons

We can directly create Icon using createIcon function exported from @gluestack-ui/themed and use it by passing it in as prop in Icon component. CreateIcon function takes viewBox, d, path etc as parameters. We can use svgs from other icon libraries like fluent, react-icons etc.
Notes to remember while using createIcon function
  • Pass svg props such as viewBox in createIcon directly.
  • Copy the svg code without the SVG tag directly into the function argument Path or D or whichever prop justifies your svg.
  • Replace HTML SVG tags (e.g., <path>, <rect> etc) with the corresponding React Native SVG components (e.g., <Path>, <Rect> etc).
  • For any color property (i.e. fill, stroke etc), if you want to override that color, pass "currentColor" instead of a colorCode.
Before : <path fill="#FF0000" d="M10 10L20 20" />
After : <Path fill="currentColor" d="M10 10L20 20" />
const GluestackIcon = createIcon({
// createIcon function is imported from '@gluestack-ui/themed'
viewBox: "0 0 32 32",
path: (
{/* Rect, Path is imported from 'react-native-svg' */}
<Rect width="32" height="32" rx="2" fill="currentColor" />
d="M9.5 14.6642L15.9999 9.87633V12.1358L9.5 16.9236V14.6642Z"
d="M22.5 14.6642L16.0001 9.87639V12.1359L22.5 16.9237V14.6642Z"
d="M9.5 19.8641L15.9999 15.0763V17.3358L9.5 22.1236V19.8641Z"

function App() {
return <Icon as={GluestackIcon} color="black" size="xl" />
