Atlas Icons

While there are hundreds of icon packs for the web out there, it's very difficult to find ones that have a high number of varied icons and also keep them all consistent. Remix Icon is usually my go-to but I recently discovered Atlas Icons and I'm very tempted to switch, I just love their visual style and they look more framework friendly with packages for React, Vue, and even Flutter. Will definitely keep an eye on this one!
