What’s New in Icon API v2

  • Refined Icon Search
    Improved keyword search functionality now brings you the most relevant results for any term, mirroring what users would find on our website – and lists the total number of results for any search. A new Auto Suggest functionality also helps suggest search terms based on initial search text as users begin to type, getting users to relevant results faster.
  • Icon & Search Term Blocking
    Enjoy greater control over search results with the ability to block any keywords you don’t want to surface, and even fine tune results further by blocking specific icons by id if necessary.
  • Icon Customization
    Now you can easily recolor and resize icons! Recolor by hex value and adjust the size of PNGs by pixel size.
