Font Awesome APIs

Between our Javascript API and our GraphQL API, we’re ready to answer all your requests.

About the Javascript API

The Font Awesome JavaScript API pairs well with JavaScript-based projects and enables advanced rendering icons and more control over some features using our SVG+JS method of rendering icons. Using this API is an advanced feature and requires that you know how to tread water in the deep end of the pool and are familiar with JavaScript and using APIs.

The Javascript API is great for:

  • Subsetting Icons with some Tree Shaking
  • Adding a counter to the layers of your icon
  • Adding text to the layers of your icon

  • Searching for your favorite icon programmatically
