A Snippet to See all SVGs in a Sprite

I think of an SVG sprite as this:


   ... 
   ... 
   ... 

I was long a fan of that approach for icon systems (-ing them as needed), but I favor including the SVGs directly as needed these days. Still, sprites are fine, and fairly popular.

What if you have a sprite, and you wanna see what’s in it?

Here’s a tiny bit of JavaScript that will loop through all the symbols it finds and inject a SVG that uses each one…

const sprite = document.querySelector("#sprite");
const symbols = sprite.querySelectorAll("symbol");

symbols.forEach(symbol => {
  document.body.insertAdjacentHTML("beforeend", `
  
     
  
`)
});

See the Pen

That’s all.
