GitHub Octicons Stencils
Our GitHub Octicons Icon Set Stencils has 162 pictographic icons for quick access while wireframing.
GitHub is a Web-based Git repository hosting service, which offers all of the distributed revision control and source code management functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. So we’ve taken their own font, Octicons, and converted it into Visio stencils (and other tool stencils) for your wireframing pleasure.
You might be asking yourself, why the did you do that? Why not use it the way it was intended – as a font. Well, for starters we believe using inline stencils inside your favorite wireframing tool is far easier to use a font for many reasons. Using our pre-made stencils is far quicker than using an external font manager like Font Book or Character Map, opening it up, browsing for the right icon, copying, pasting in your wireframing tool, re-sizing it to the appropriate size, and coloring it. This is because we’ve already done all the legwork by exporting all the icons to a vector format, re-scaling each icon, and properly naming each individual icon to easily be easily searchable. This allows you to quickly find the right icon for your designs and quickly drag ‘n drop from this extensive library of icons into your designs in seconds.
Please note that GitHub is constantly updating their Octicons icon set to include new icon every so often so please remember that this set is based off their v3.1.0 set, not their absolute latest version.
The GitHub Octicons Icon Set Stencil is compatible with Adobe Illustrator (.ai and .ai symbol), Microsoft Visio (.vss, .vssx, .vsd, and .vsdx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx) and Apple Keynote (.key). Plus as an added bonus you’ll also receive this set in .pdf format and as individual .svg and .png files.
