Interested in trying to use the new Dynamic Icons (https://www.lightningdesignsystem.com/components/dynamic-icons/) from SLDS in a Lightning Component but can't quite figure out how...

Do I need to use the old deprecated method of creating a component for svgs: https://www.lightningdesignsystem.com/resources/lightning-svg-icon-component-helper/

or can these be used with the Lightning:Icon base component?

  • As far as I can see from documentation, the lightning:icon can support only specific set of icons by category specified here : lightningdesignsystem.com/icons All the references I looked for and sample codes still use the old method of SVG. Until there is a separate category added for dynamic icons you may have to use the SVG deprecated route is my thought. BTW My reference : github implementing dynamic icons: github.com/jmdohn/dynamicIcons – Rao Jul 12 '17 at 19:04
  • Now that winter 18 is released for all orgs, you can use the standard lightning:dynamicIcon component. developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.lightning.meta/… – jmdohn Oct 14 '17 at 16:16
