We do the rocket science, so you can do the rest
In a continued effort to make icons easier to use, we’ve partnered up with UI8.net who shares this vision. This resulted in UI8 requiring their authors to include .iconjar files for each icon set offered on their marketplace, but how does that work?
UI8 authors get a 75% discount for IconJar, which can be found in your dashboard. When you have IconJar installed you can import all icon files and start tagging them there, and optionally specify a license for your icon set.
When you’re done you can click on the more icon in the left sidebar and click on
Export IconJar... there. Alternatively you can click the
Export > IconJar button in the inspector, which is visible when you have the “Icon Set” tab selected.
Our Sketch plugin enables you to import selected layers / groups from Sketch directly into IconJar. You can find the plugin in IconJar 👉 Preferences 👉 Integration. The plugin allows you to select an import format, but changing the defaults is completely optional.
After the plugin is installed an “Export to IconJar…” option should be available from the plugins menu in Sketch.
Sometimes you want the search form to search through your complete icon library. However, there are plenty of usecases I which you want the search form to respect the scope you’ve selected in the left sidebar. Changing the scope of the search form is extremely easy and is found when you select the input field and click on the little search icon that transitions to the left.
We offer a 20% educational discount to students and teachers around the world. To apply you can simply get in touch with us via email with your
.edu email address. If you don’t have a
.edu email address we ask you to confirm that you’re a student or teacher.
Some apps such as Keynote and Photoshop don’t support SVGs out of the box. The target app will very likely show an error when dropping an SVG from Iconjar. Alternatively you should use our Quickdrag feature which enables you to drag and drop icons in any file type you want. Most apps that don’t support SVG work pretty well with PDF files so we recommend using that as an alternative. PDFs are scalable and pretty much have the same benefits as SVGs.
Sometimes you switch Macs, or you clean up your inbox and accidentally delete your order confirmation from IconJar. This happens more often than you think, but thankfully there’s nothing to worry about. We built a license recovery form that lets you lookup licenses by email and have them sent to your inbox. This email contains all your licenses plus its invoices when they’re purchased through Paddle.
Sure can! We know that in some cases you can run into activation limits of IconJar (which is two per license). In that case you can reset your license on our Reset License page. This is a process we used to do manually but that can now be done by yourself so you no longer have to wait till we’ve done so.
Note: Resetting your license requires you to enter your license key. If you’ve lost your license key you can get in touch with us via email so we can look it up.
The first thing we recommend doing is to download the latest version of IconJar. It is possible that IconJar can’t launch due to an issue with a specific version of macOS which means it will never trigger the update dialogue.
If that doesn’t work and you still get a crash, it might be due to malformed/conflicting preferences. Open up Terminal and type the following command:
defaults delete com.iconjar.iconjar.
Then hit return, this will remove any preferences you have set and revert back to IconJar’s defaults. Then you can launch IconJar again.
A third, and last possibility, would be that your library got broken. To be sure, backup the following direction; ~/library/Application Support/Iconjar. Delete the directory and start the app again. You’ll notice that your icons are gone, therefore we always recommend people to keep a backup of their icons somewhere.
If neither of these work, please reach out to us for additional support.
We often receive questions from people who want to generate .IconJar files on their website. As per request, we wrote a PHP library that does just that and you can find it on GitHub. The
index.php contains an example that should get you up and running in no-time.
Since this library is open-source we highly appreciate it if you contribute by creating pull requests or issues.
