You can use this function in sass or any project that depends on sass. The only thing you need to do to make this work is add the inlinerfunction to the functions option.
You should initialize the inliner with a basepath where it will look for the svg files.


var sass = require('sass');
var inliner = require('@liquid-js/sass-inline-svg')

  data: '.logo-icon{ background: svg("logo.svg")}',
  functions: {
    "svg($path, $selectors: null)": inliner('./', [options])

sass CLI usage

$ sass --functions=node_modules/@liquid-js/sass-inline-svg/default [other sass arguments]
This is equivalent to specifying the following:
renderOptions = {
  functions: {
    'svg($path, $selectors: null)': inliner('./', {}),
    'inline-svg($path, $selectors: null)': inliner('./', {})


var inliner = require('@liquid-js/sass-inline-svg')

    sass: {
        options: {
            functions: {
                "svg($path, $selectors: null)": inliner('./', [options])


optimize (default false)

{optimize: true} uses svgo internally to optmize the svg.

encodingFormat (default: base64)

base64 will encode the SVG with base64, while uri will do a minimal URI-encoding of the svg -- uri is always smaller, and has good browser support as well.

svg transformation

The inliner accepts a second argument, a sass-map, that describes a css like transformation. The first keys of this map are css-selectors. Their values are also sass-maps that holds a key-value store of the svg-attribute transformation you want to apply to the corresponding selector.
.logo-icon {
  background: svg("logo.svg", (path: (fill: green), rect: (stroke: white)));

In this example path and rect are selectors and fill: green and stroke: white are the associated applied attributes.
