There are many ways/formats of how to use dashicons. The fastest and recommended way is via SVG directly. Or use the webfont version if you want to include all icons at once:

SVG icons -- when you need just a few icons in your project

1 . If you want to use just a few icons. Find the icons you need in "icons" folder. Then use them as regular images:

<img height="32" width="32" src="@icon/dashicons/icons/menu.svg" />

2 . Icons can be served from a CDN such as Unpkg. Simply use the @icon/dashicons npm package in the URL like the following:

<img height="32" width="32" src="https://unpkg.com/@icon/dashicons/icons/menu.svg" />

Icons font -- ideal when you want to include all icons at once

1 . Install @icon/dashicons with this command. In the <head> of your html, reference the location to your dashicons.css.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="@icon/dashicons/dashicons.css">

2 . Use unpkg.com to load directly dashicons without installing anything:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/@icon/dashicons/dashicons.css">

Place dashicons with <i> tag in your html like this. Icon class names are to be used with the dashicons class prefix.

<i class="dashicons dashicons-menu"></i>
