Usage

The basics

The icon property of the FontAwesomeIcon component can be used in the following way:

Shorthand that assumes a prefix of fas:

<font-awesome-icon icon="spinner" />

Explicit prefix (note the Vue bind shorthand because this uses an array):

<font-awesome-icon :icon="['far', 'spinner']" />

Explicit icon definition (this is pseudo-code, see examples below for more detail):

import faCoffee from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-free-solid/faCoffee'

<font-awesome-icon :icon="getIcon" />

function getIcon () {
  return faCoffee
}

Using it with Vue

Using an explicit icon offers the advantage of only bundling the icons that you
use in your final bundled file. This allows us to subset Font Awesome's
thousands of icons to just the small number that are normally used.

Import the specific icons that you need:

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <font-awesome-icon :icon="icon" />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import FontAwesomeIcon from '@fortawesome/vue-fontawesome'
import faCoffee from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-free-solid/faCoffee'

export default {
  name: 'FAExample',

  computed: {
    icon () {
      return faCoffee
    }
  },

  components: {
    FontAwesomeIcon
  }
}
</script>

It can be tedious to always import the icons individually so a library can be
configured and shorthand can be used when rendering the icon.

Define a library that can be used without explicit imports:

App.js

import Vue from 'vue'
import Main from './Main.vue'
import fontawesome from '@fortawesome/fontawesome'
import brands from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-free-brands'
import faSpinner from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-free-solid/faSpinner'

fontawesome.library.add(brands, faSpinner)

new Vue({
  el: '#app',
  render: h => h(Main)
})

FAExample.vue

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <!-- If you are using the "Solid" style you can simply use the icon name -->
    <font-awesome-icon icon="spinner" />
    <!-- Using another style needs a prefix in the following array format -->
    <font-awesome-icon :icon="['fab', 'font-awesome']" />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  name: 'FAExample',

  components: {
    FontAwesomeIcon
  }
}
</script>
