Live preview

Light mode favicon example Dark mode favicon example

Switches site's favicon by matching media queries. It could be used for light/dark mode switching. Due to browsers don't support all Media Query features in link tag, this module fixes it.


Script doesn't require any setup or configuration and works like a polyfill. The example below shows how to make dark/light mode icon switching.

Use the main library to automatically turn icon switching on:

<script src="[email protected]/dist/index.js" crossorigin="anonymous" type="application/javascript"></script>

If you need more control to turn switching on and off use one of the next module:


Use with UMD:

<script src="[email protected]/dist/index.umd.js" crossorigin="anonymous" type="application/javascript"></script>


Use as ES module:

<script type="module" language="javascript">
  import initSwitcher from '[email protected]/dist/index.esm.js'

  // Subscribe to media queries changing events
  const unsubscribe = initSwitcher()
  // Unsubscribe later on some condition. For example on page navigation.

Complete example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en" dir="ltr">
    <link rel="icon" media="(prefers-color-scheme:dark)" href="favicon-dark.png" type="image/png" />
    <link rel="icon" media="(prefers-color-scheme:light)" href="favicon-light.png" type="image/png" />
    <script src="[email protected]/dist/index.js" crossorigin="anonymous" type="application/javascript"></script>
