I created a site using Gatsby and I wanted to change the favicon.
I quickly looked at how to change it, and the process was very simple.
The favicon by default is the image
static/favicon.ico. Just change that, and you’re set.
If you’re using the
gatsby-plugin-sharp plugin, the favicon by default is the image
You don’t have to use that path, or the same format - the image can also be an SVG image, for example: open the
gatsby-config.js file and change the
plugins.gatsby-plugin-sharp.options.icon property from
src/images/gatsby-icon.png to the one you want.
For example I put my new favicon image in
src/images/logo-small.svg and I changed that configuration property to point to it.
gatsby develop and I could immediately see Gatsby updated all the favicon images, in different sizes:
I wrote an entire book on this topic 👇
I also got a super cool course 👇
