Expand description

This crate contains the auto-generated mapping from an icon name (such as Icon::NetworkWifi) to the character codepoint \u{e1ba}) in Googles Material Icon Font (https://material.io/tools/icons/) - useful if you want to use the material-icons font in user interfaces created in Rust


use material_icons::{Icon, icon_to_char};
let icon_char = icon_to_char(Icon::Rotation3d);
assert_eq!('\u{e84d}', icon_char);

When the resulting character is displayed using any font renderer, the character will result in the “3d_rotation” glyph.
