Module to use Font Awesome icons in your Nuxt.js project. Uses vue-fontawesome under the hood

📖 Release Notes


  • Add dependency using npm to your project
$ yarn add @nuxtjs/fontawesome -D

// or to also add the free icon packs

$ yarn add @nuxtjs/fontawesome @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons @fortawesome/free-brands-svg-icons -D
  • Add @nuxtjs/fontawesome to buildModules in your nuxt.config
  • Configure loaded icons/whole sets

Use the 'fontawesome' key:

  // nuxt.config.js
  buildModules: [

  fontawesome: {
    icons: [

or include the options in the modules listing

  // nuxt.config.js
  buildModules: [
    ['@nuxtjs/fontawesome', {
      component: 'fa',
      suffix: true,
      proIcons: { // if you have bought the Pro packages
        // list the icons you want to add, not listed icons will be tree-shaked
        solid: [
        // include all icons. But dont do this.
        regular: true

Module options


  • Default: FontAwesomeIcon

Change component name. Eg set to fa to use <fa icon="" ... />. Also see suffix

It's strongly recommended to use PascalCase for component names


  • Default: true

Boolean to indicate if the layers component should be registered globally. Name of the component will be ${options.component}-layers, fe <fa-layers ... />


  • Default: true

Boolean to indicate if the layers component should be registered globally. Name of the component will be the ${options.component}-layers-text, fe <fa-layers-text ... />


Which icons you will use. FontAwesome currently supports 5 icon styles of which 3 are freely available (partially).

This option is an object with the style names as property and an array with all icon names you wish to use from those styles

  icons: {
    solid: [ 'faHome', ... ],
    regular: [ ... ],
    light: [ ... ],
    duotone: [ ... ],
    brands: [ ...]

Although not recommended, you can use true to include the full icon set:

  icons: {
    solid: true


See icons for how to use, but always uses pro imports.


  • Default: true

If the module should automatically add the fontawesome styles to the global css config. It works by unshifting @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core/styles.css onto the nuxt.options.css property.


  • Default: false

Boolean whether to append -icon to the icon component name. This option exists as the component name option is also used for the layer components and you might not want to add '-icon' to those

  // config
  component: 'Fa',
  suffix: true

  // usage
  <fa-icon />
  <fa-layer />
  // config
  component: 'FaIcon',
  suffix: false

  // usage
  <fa-icon />
  <fa-icon-layers />

imports deprecated

Import icons/whole sets from chosen packages. This is the old configuration and will likely be removed in a future version. Use icons instead

  • Default: [], no icons will be imported here (see below, can be loaded later inside .vue file)
    • set - path to node package for import, like @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons
    • icons - array of icons to import ['faAdjust', 'faArchive'].
  imports: [
      set: '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons',
      icons: ['faHome']


You can find more details under example folder. Also please see vue-fontawesome for additional reference

  • Ensure you have installed an icon package yarn add @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons -D
  • and have added the module configuration to your nuxt.config.js

Default component names are:

  • <font-awesome-icon>
  • <font-awesome-layers>
  • <font-awesome-layers-text>

With component option set, -layers and -layers-text suffixes will be appended (see example below)

  // nuxt.config
  fontawesome: {
    icons: {
      solid: ['faHome'],
      regular: ['faAdjust']
  • Use global icons:
    <font-awesome-icon :icon="['fas', 'adjust']"  />
    <font-awesome-icon icon="dollar-sign"  style="font-size: 30px"/>
    <font-awesome-icon icon="cog"/>

    <font-awesome-layers class="fa-4x">
      <font-awesome-icon icon="circle"/>
      <font-awesome-icon icon="check" transform="shrink-6" :style="{ color: 'white' }"/>

    <font-awesome-layers full-width class="fa-4x">
      <font-awesome-icon icon="calendar"/>
      <font-awesome-layers-text transform="shrink-8 down-3" value="27" class="fa-inverse" />

  • Use locally imported icons
        <fa-layers full-width class="fa-4x">
          <fa :icon="fas.faCircle"/>
          <fa-layers-text transform="shrink-12" value="GALSD" class="fa-inverse" />

        <fa :icon="fas.faAddressBook"  />
        <fa :icon="faGithub" />

import { fas } from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons'
import { faGithub } from '@fortawesome/free-brands-svg-icons'

export default {
  computed: {
    fas () {
       return fas // NOT RECOMMENDED
    faGithub () {
       return faGithub
