gulp-iconfont-css
Generate (S)CSS file for icon font created with Gulp

Warning

Recent versions of gulp-iconfont emit a glyphs (or codepoints < 4.0.0) event (see docs) which should likely be used instead of the workflow described below. However, it will continue to work as expected.

Usage

First, install gulp-iconfont and gulp-iconfont-css as development dependencies:
npm install --save-dev gulp-iconfont gulp-iconfont-css

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js. Important: gulp-iconfont-css has to be inserted before piping the files through gulp-iconfont.
var iconfont = require('gulp-iconfont');
var iconfontCss = require('gulp-iconfont-css');

var fontName = 'Icons';

gulp.task('iconfont', function(){
  gulp.src(['app/assets/icons/*.svg'])
    .pipe(iconfontCss({
      fontName: fontName,
      path: 'app/assets/css/templates/_icons.scss',
      targetPath: '../../css/_icons.scss',
      fontPath: '../../fonts/icons/'
    }))
    .pipe(iconfont({
      fontName: fontName
     }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('app/assets/fonts/icons/'));
});

gulp-iconfont-css works well with gulp-iconfont but you can use it in a more modular fashion by directly using gulp-svgicons2svgfont, gulp-svg2tff, gulp-ttf2eot, gulp-ttf2woff and/or gulp-ttf2woff2.
