To get up and running using Font Awesome with Angular follow below steps:

  1. Add FontAwesomeModule to imports in src/app/app.module.ts:

    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    import { FontAwesomeModule } from '@fortawesome/angular-fontawesome';
      imports: [
      declarations: [AppComponent],
      bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    export class AppModule { }
  2. Tie the icon to the property in your component src/app/app.component.ts:

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { faCoffee } from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons';
      selector: 'app-root',
      templateUrl: './app.component.html'
    export class AppComponent {
      faCoffee = faCoffee;
  3. Use the icon in the template src/app/app.component.html:

    <fa-icon [icon]="faCoffee"></fa-icon>
