Import the IconImportModule in your application module and call the forRoot() function with two parameters. At first the array of icon keys, e.g. (account_circle, add or whatever you want). The secont parameter is the path where you store the icons in your assets folder.
import { IconImportModule } from 'mat-icon-import'; @NgModule({ imports: [ IconsModule.forRoot(['account_circle'], './assets/mat-icons') ] }) export class AppModule {}
Register the icons where you need them. E.g. in the AppComponent to make it available in the complete application.
import { IconImportService } from 'mat-icon-import'; @Component({ ... }) export class AppComponent { constructor (private iconService: IconImportService) { this.iconService.register(); } }
Use the registered icons with
<mat-icon svgIcon="account_circle"></mat-icon>
Don't forget to import the MatIconModule from @angular/material.
