What is an HVIF file?

An HVIF is a vector icon used by Haiku, an open source computer operating system. It contains an icon saved in the Haiku Vector Icon Format (HVIF), which includes style, path, and shape data. HVIF files are highly optimized for small icon file sizes and quick rendering.

More Information

HVIF files can be created and opened by Icon-O-Matic, which is an icon editor included with Haiku. The program can also be used to convert HVIF files to .SVG or .PNG files.

The Haiku operating system (OS) was inspired by BeOS, which was an OS developed in the 1990s. The first beta of Haiku was released in September 2018. The HVIF file format was introduced to replace and improve upon .BMP icons, which were previously used by BeOS for storing icons.
