This function auto-detects the location of your package logo (with the name logo.svg (recommended format) or logo.png) and runs it through the API to build a complete set of favicons with different sizes, as needed for modern web usage.


build_favicons(pkg = ".", overwrite = FALSE)



Path to package.


If TRUE, re-create favicons from package logo.


You only need to run the function once. The favicon set will be stored in pkgdown/favicon and copied by init_site() to the relevant location when the website is rebuilt.

Once complete, you should add pkgdown/ to .Rbuildignore to avoid a NOTE during package checking.
