Markdown extension resources for MkDocs Material


pip install mkdocs-material-extensions

Inline SVG Icons

MkDocs Material provides numerous icons from Material, FontAwesome, and Octicons, but it does so by inlining the SVG icons into the source. Currently there is no easy way access these icons and arbitrarily insert them into Markdown content. Users must include the icon fonts themselves and do it with HTML.

This module allows you to use PyMdown Extensions' Emoji extension to enable easy insertion of MkDocs Material's SVG assets using simple :emoji-syntax:. This is done by creating our own emoji index and emoji generator. The custom index provides a modified version of the Emoji extensions Twemoji index.

In addition to the custom index, you must also specify the associated custom generator. This will will find the appropriate icon and insert it into your Markdown content as an inlined SVG.


  - pymdownx.emoji:
      emoji_index: !!python/name:materialx.emoji.twemoji
      emoji_generator: !!python/name:materialx.emoji.to_svg

Then, using the folder structure of Material's .icons folder, you can specify icons:

We can use Material Icons :material-airplane:.

We can also use Fontawesome Icons :fontawesome-solid-ambulance:.

That's not all, we can also use Octicons :octicons-octoface:.
