Before You Get Started

Make sure you:

We recommend the official vue-fontawesome component (described below), which uses the SVG + JS method to render icons. But you can opt to use the Web Fonts with CSS method if you prefer.

We’ll cover the basics of installing core utility packages, icon installation, and installing the Vue component, so that you can make awesome stuff your way!

Follow the steps below to set up the vue-fontawesome component in your project.

1. Add SVG Core

First you'll need to use npm or yarn to install the core package which includes all the utilities to make the icons work:

    npm i --save @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core
    
    yarn add @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core

    2. Add Icon Packages

    Next, you'll install the icons you want to use - you can choose Free or Pro icons, and select any of our styles.

    Free Icon Packages

    For Free icons, you can add either – or both – of these styles:

      # Free icons styles
      npm i --save @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons
      npm i --save @fortawesome/free-regular-svg-icons
      
      # Free icons styles
      yarn add @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons
      yarn add @fortawesome/free-regular-svg-icons
      

      Pro Icon Packages

      You'll first need to set up access with your secret Font Awesome npm token and global or per-project access to use Pro icons.

      Configure Access for Pro

      Then add the Pro icon style packages that you plan to use in your app:

        # Pro icons styles
        npm i --save @fortawesome/pro-solid-svg-icons
        npm i --save @fortawesome/pro-regular-svg-icons
        npm i --save @fortawesome/pro-light-svg-icons
        npm i --save @fortawesome/pro-thin-svg-icons
        npm i --save @fortawesome/pro-duotone-svg-icons
        
        # Pro icons styles
        yarn add @fortawesome/pro-solid-svg-icons
        yarn add @fortawesome/pro-regular-svg-icons
        yarn add @fortawesome/pro-light-svg-icons
        yarn add @fortawesome/pro-thin-svg-icons
        yarn add @fortawesome/pro-duotone-svg-icons

        3. Add the Vue Component

        And lastly, install the Font Awesome Vue component:

          npm i --save @fortawesome/[email protected]
          
          yarn add @fortawesome/[email protected]
