Set icons for resources in sidebar.



You can install the package in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require anaseqal/nova-sidebar-icons

Publish navigation view file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Anaseqal\NovaSidebarIcons\ToolServiceProvider" --force

Register the tool in NovaServiceProvider:

use Anaseqal\NovaSidebarIcons\NovaSidebarIcons;

public function tools()
        return [
            new NovaSidebarIcons,


Set the icon in your Nova resource, for example:

 * The icon of the resource.
 * @return string
public static function icon() 
    // Assuming you have a blade file containing an image
    // in resources/views/vendor/nova/svg/icon-user.blade.php
    return view('nova::svg.icon-user')->render();

This is the recommended approach. In the example above we have used a blade file containing an svg, but if you'd want to it's is possible return the entire svg string

Examples of other approaches

// By using an image tag
public static function icon() 
    return '<img src="/path/to/image.svg" />';

// Or simply return it as a string
public static function icon() 
    return '<svg class="sidebar-icon" xmlns="" viewBox="0 0 24 24">
                <path fill="var(--sidebar-icon)" d="M4.06 13a8 8 0 0 0 5.18 .... e.t.c."/>

Backwards compatibility

Please note that this package used to use a static $icon property on the resource. This has been replaced with the static icon method. The icon property is still supported to preserve backwards compatibility.
