Bootstrap Icons are designed to work with Bootstrap components, from form controls to navigation. Bootstrap Icons are SVGs, so they scale quickly and easily and can be styled with CSS. While they are built for Bootstrap, they will work in any project.

In BootstrapVue there are different built-in animation icons for example Cylon, Cylon-vertical, fade, spin, spin-reverse, spin-pulse, spin-reverse-pulse, and throb.To add animated icons we are going to use the animation props with animation names. Let’s see the code example:

FirstComponent.js

<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Welcome to sortoutcode.com</h1>
    <b-row class="mt-5">
      <b-col>
        <p>Cylon animation:</p>
        <b-icon icon="three-dots" animation="cylon" font-scale="4"></b-icon>
      </b-col>
      <b-col>
        <p>Spinning animation:</p>
        <b-icon icon="arrow-clockwise" animation="spin" font-scale="4"></b-icon>
      </b-col>
      <b-col>
        <p>Throb animation:</p>
        <b-icon icon="circle-fill" animation="throb" font-scale="4"></b-icon>
      </b-col>
      <b-col>
        <p>Fade animation:</p>
        <b-icon icon="star-fill" animation="fade" font-scale="4"></b-icon>
      </b-col>
      <b-col>
        <p>Pulsing spin animation:</p>
        <b-icon
          icon="arrow-clockwise"
          animation="spin-pulse"
          font-scale="4"
        ></b-icon>
      </b-col>
    </b-row>
  </div>
