If you need an example of installing Font Awesome icons in Angular 17, this guide will provide a simple walkthrough. I'll demonstrate how to install Font Awesome in Angular 17 and show you how to use Font Awesome icons. Follow this basic example to integrate Font Awesome icons seamlessly into your Angular 17 project.

Icons play a fundamental role in every project, conveying information without the need for accompanying labels. They enhance the aesthetic appeal of our application layouts. When contemplating the integration of icons into your application, Font Awesome emerges as the preferred choice. Font Awesome provides an extensive collection of icons, ensuring effortless utilization.

For instance, let's delve into the step-by-step process of installing Font Awesome icons in an Angular 17 application. While the procedure is straightforward, it can be particularly helpful for new developers seeking guidance on its implementation.

Step for Install Font Awesome Icons in Angular 17

  • Step 1: Create Angular 17 Project
  • Step 2: Install font-awesome
  • Step 3: Import CSS
  • Step 4: Use Font Awesome Icons
  • Run Angular App

Let's follow the following steps:

Step 1: Create Angular 17 Project

You can easily create your Angular app using the following command:

ng new my-new-app

Step 2: Install font-awesome

In this step, you just need to install Font Awesome in your Angular 17 project and import the CSS file into the style.css file. This is specifically for CSS importing. Run the following command:

npm install font-awesome --save

Step 3: Import CSS

After successfully installing Font Awesome, we need to import the CSS files in the angular.json file. Let's add the following lines to it:

angular.json

"$schema": "./node_modules/@angular/cli/lib/config/schema.json",
  "version": 1,
  "newProjectRoot": "projects",
  "projects": {
    "appFont": {
      ....
            "assets": [
              "src/favicon.ico",
              "src/assets"
            ],
            "styles": [
              "node_modules/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css",
              "src/styles.css"
            ],
      ......

 Alternatively, you can specify the path like this if the above method is not working:

"$schema": "./node_modules/@angular/cli/lib/config/schema.json",
  "version": 1,
  "newProjectRoot": "projects",
  "projects": {
    "appFont": {
      ....
            "assets": [
              "src/favicon.ico",
              "src/assets"
            ],
            "styles": [
              "../node_modules/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css",
              "src/styles.css"
            ],
      ......

Step 4: Use Font Awesome Icons in Angular 17

Now we are ready to use Font Awesome classes in our HTML file. Let's add the following code to your app.component.html file:

src/app/app.component.html

<h1>Angular 17 Install Font Awesome Icons Example - TechvBlogs.com</h1>
   
<i class="fa fa-user fa-5x"></i>
<i class="fa fa-dashboard fa-5x"></i>
<i class="fa fa-money fa-5x"></i>
<i class="fa fa-home fa-5x"></i>
<i class="fa fa-th fa-5x"></i>

You can run the application.
