Angular 6 and Font Awesome

Continuing with my screencast ‘series’ - the best way to integrate Font Awesome and Angular, this is simple and quick, shown on a fresh installation.

Install the Font Awesome packages: npm install @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core --save\nnpm install @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons --save\nnpm install @fortawesome/angular-fontawesome --save

Import the following within app.module.ts: import { FontAwesomeModule } from '@fortawesome/angular-fontawesome'; import { library } from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core'; import { fas } from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons'; library.add(fas);

Add FontAwesomeModule to the imports section.

Example icons:

<ul>
  <li><fa-icon icon="coffee" size="3x"></fa-icon></li>
  <li><fa-icon icon="check"></fa-icon></li>
  <li><fa-icon icon="spinner" spin="true" size="3x"></fa-icon></li>
  <li><fa-icon icon="envelope" rotate="90"></fa-icon></li>
  </ul>
