How to resize SVG icon using Tailwind CSS ?

  • Last Updated : 17 Jun, 2021

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics and is an XML-based ( can be edited ) vector image format. SVG is commonly used for icons, animations, interactive charts, graphs, and other dynamic graphics in the browser. As it is XML-based, you can easily resize the SVG icon using Tailwind.

Approach: You can simply customize the class of SVG by changing the height and width of the icons or by changing the values of viewBox attributes of SVG.

Syntax: 

<svg class="h-30 w-30" viewBox="0 0 24 24">
    <path d=" "/>
</svg>

Note: The viewBox attribute defines the position and dimension of an SVG viewport. The value of the viewBox attribute is a list of four numbers, min-x, min-y, width, and height. So the viewBox doesn’t set the size of the SVG, it just determines the frame or window through which we will see the SVG.

Example 1: Using viewBox attribute to resize SVG icon.
