Our Kits service gets icons into your web projects with just one line of code. Just create, add the Kit embed code to your project, and you're set to get the icons flowing!
1. Create a Kit from Your Kits Listing
You can access Kits in your account menu or from your account page. From the Kits page, you can easily create a new kit and follow the steps to get it set up in your project.
2. Adjust Your Kit Settings
By default, a new kit is set up with these settings:
An easily identifiable name for your kit (maybe use a project or site name?)
The Kit's unique ID
Select Free or Pro icons
Free for free users, Pro for Pro users
Choose whether you want to use Auto-Subsetting or manage it yourself with custom subsetting
Version of Font Awesome
Select the version of Font Awesome you want to load
Latest (auto-updates to whatever the latest release is)
Choose the type of tech you want to use to render your icons, Web Fonts or SVG+JS
Set which domains are allowed to use this kit and prevent unauthorized use of your Kit embed code
Open (any domain can use)
Earlier version compatability
Enables old version 4 or 5 icon names or references
Temporarily detect conflicts with other versions of Font Awesome loading in your project
We automatically generate a random string for your kit's name but you can name it something memorable, like your project's name, what you'll use the kit for, or your favorite Star Wars character. Visit the settings for your Kit if you would like to make adjustments to suit your project.
3. Add the Kit Embed Code to your project
From your kit's detail page, you can copy the JS Kit embed code. Then just add it to the <head> of each template or page of your project that you want to use Font Awesome icons.
Benefits of CSS-only Kits
Cons of CSS-only Kits
Blocks the page from loading until the icons are ready
No page repaints or jumping UI
Ready to Get Kitted Up?
Take the power of kits into your hands... Head over to Kits and get started!
If you don't want us to host your Kit, you can download any Pro Kit and host it yourself (or use the icons in your desktop apps). Downloading is available on Kits set to Version 6.4 and higher (or Latest). Then on the Set Up tab in your Kit, you'll see the options for downloading.
And if you have custom icons in your Kit, they will be included in your download in all the formats, just like the Font Awesome ones.
Performance is one of those things you don't care about until you do. And luckily, we already took care of that for you!
If you're using a Pro Kit, Auto-subsetting takes just the icons you're using in your project and creates a subset on the fly - whether you're using Web Fonts or SVG icons. So your Kit only loads the icons you need and gives you the great performance auto-magically.
I'm getting a lot more pageviews than I think I should be. What can I do?
Specifying a domain can help you control where and how you're using Font Awesome Kits which helps avoid unexpected extreme usage.
If you're seeing more pageviews than you expected, you might want to add domains to limit which sites can use your Kit:
Limit your Kit to certain domains
Go to your Kit settings and scroll down to the Domains section.
Click "Add a Domain" and you can enter a domain you'll use the Kit on. (You can use wildcards to add subdomains or alternate endings - there's a link to the full details right there next to the setting.)
Click the plus button to lock it in, and repeat to add more. If you need to remove one, hover over it and you'll have the option to delete.
