How do I use Bootstrap Glyphicons in 3.0.0?
I’m using Glyphicons in Bootstrap. I was calling in the CSS straight from http://glyphicons.getbootstrap.com/css/bootstrap-glyphicons.css but this has now disappeared and was not recommended.
This apparently coincides with Twitter making the Glyphicons available in the Bootstrap package again. I am using Bootstrap 3.0.0 RC1 or RC2.
My problem: I have no idea how to use the icons in my own hosting…
Seems to me the code is contained within the bootstrap.css (?).
I have uploaded the “fonts” directory but am only getting blank, empty-box icons where there should be proper icons.
Any ideas please? What should be where and how should it be called?
bootstrap-glyphicons.css file seems to have been removed with the final\production Bootstrap 3.0.0. Simply download the zip from http://getbootstrap.com/ and then copy the
dist/css/bootstrap.min.css file in your css folder. You should then include it in your HTML page as such:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Bootstrap 101 Glyphicons</title> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <!-- Bootstrap CSS file --> <link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen"> </head> <body> <!-- Glyphicon in a H1 tag --> <h1>Hello, <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-globe"></span> !</h1> </body> </html>
If you have already put in the fonts directory, calling the icons now would be
<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></span> instead of
<i class="icon-large icon-pencil"></i>.
Just make sure your fonts folder is placed correctly relative to the .css file:
some-root-folder ├--my-css-folder | └--bootstrap.min.css └--fonts └--glyphicons-halflings-regular.ttf
I followed this post http://www.erikminkel.com/2013/09/01/twitter-bootstrap-3-in-a-rails-4-application. I don’t know if the best way, but Works.
