Are you on Mac OSX? The easiest way is to use Iconjar to modify icon colors in seconds.

Use Iconjar, as all our icons are provided as Iconjar files. Just select the icons you want, pick the sizes you prefer, pick the file format you want and click export!
To open the vector files and modify the icons, you need a vector graphic software. Here is a selection of the most used.
Figma | Free The collaborative interface design tool. Quickly rising as a new industry standard. Simple, fast, with new features added at a fast pace.
Sketch | $99 Cheaper and a bit easier than Illustrator. Focused on prototyping and interface design, but it’s also a good software to edit icons.
Affinity Designer | $39 For $39, this is an incredible value. Affinity designer got great features, excellent interface and is easy to use.
Illustrator | From $19/month Illustrator was the first graphic vector software, and is still an industry standard. We use it exclusively to design our Streamline icons, as no other software offer as many features for icon designers. But it’s the priciest option, and it’s a bit hard to use at first.
If you work on a Mac, Iconjar is the best way to work with icons. we provide our icons as Iconjar files, so you can find icons in seconds, export them as
.GIF …or to simply change the icon color.
Unfortunately, there is nothing like the Iconjar app for Windows. But we are working on creating a web application that allows you to browse and search our Streamline icons, thanks to the amazing Clément Sauvage 🙌 Note that this app will only work for the Streamline icons, and you cannot import your own icons.
1- Open Sketch preferences, navigate to the Libraries tab, and choose Add Library…
2- Select the Sketch file and click Open
3- Now you’re ready to start using the Streamline icons in any Sketch 47+ document
1- Download and install the Sketch Runner plugin
2- Once the Streamline icons library is installed, launch Sketch Runner with ⌘ “, select Insert tab, type an icon name, and hit return to choose symbol
1- Once the Streamline library is installed, insert any symbol right from the Insert Symbol menu icon

Thanks to Cole Bemis for these tips 🙏🏻
Nope. With over 10,000 icons per weight the icon font would be huge, and hard to use 🤯
Use Iconjar to search and select icons that you want to use, then export them as SVG in a folder. All my icons are now also provided as iconjar files, and each icon is tagged with up to 8 tags, so it’s very easy to find the right icon.
After you have selected your SVG icons, import them in Icomoon. You can create your own icon font in minutes, and you will have a very lightweight and tailored icon font.
Even better, use Icomoon to export the icons as SVG sprites. This is a better approach than using icon font, see why here: Icon Fonts vs SVGs - Which One Should You Use In 2018?
To import icons in an icon font generator, like Icomoon, use the “expanded” version, that you can find here for the line version:
You don’t need a special version for the Bold version, as it’s expanded by default.
You don’t need a license to create an icon font, as long as you include less than 100 icons in that font.
We provide each icon SVG in 2 SVG version files:
SVG with adjustable stroke width. You can control the line thickness via CSS values.
SVG Expanded. Mainly for creating icon fonts with generators like Icomoon. These icons are not made from lines, but are “expanded” into filled forms.
Font Awesome is amazing 👍🏻 They have great tools and workflow for developers. Although it’s good to have an icon library with a different style (and a ton more icons :-)
Font Awesome get only 1,877 icons, where Streamline icons got 10,500. With our icon library you won’t need to scout around to find a missing icon.
Only Streamline got strokes that you can change thickness, so you can adjust the thickness of our icons. Font Awesome icons are expanded, you have no way to modify their thickness.
You should have both. It’s like having different typefaces available on your computer 😇
