    Install

    1. Install Packages

    npm install @fortawesome/fontawesome-free@^5.15.4

    npm install @ui4ngx/fontawesome

    2. Import the module:

    There are multiple ways to use FontAwesome v5+.

    Both WebFont and SVG icons are available since version 5 and each type can be used independently or together.

    The following is how to set up your project to use WebFont or SVG or both.

    2.1 Using WebFont Icons

    2.1.1. Install CSS Styles and Web Fonts

    If you want to manually install FontAwesome 5+, the free package can be downloaded at
    https://fontawesome.com/download

    Clicking on [Free For Web] under Font Awesome 5 section, you will be able to get this file fontawesome-free-5.15.4-web.zip

    Extract the ZIP file and copy CSS and WebFont files to assets/css and assets/webfonts folder respectively._

    Project structure

    src/           
    |- assets/
    |  |- css/
    |      |- all.css  <-- from zip file downloaded earlier.
    |  |- webfonts/
    |      |- fa-brands-400.eot   <-- the following are required for Brand icons ('fab' prefix)
    |      |- fa-brands-400.svg
    |      |- fa-brands-400.ttf
    |      |- fa-brands-400.woff
    |      |- fa-brands-400.woff2
    |      |- fa-regular-400.eot  <-- the following are required for Regular icons ('far' prefix)
    |      |- fa-regular-400.svg
    |      |- fa-regular-400.ttf
    |      |- fa-regular-400.woff
    |      |- fa-regular-400.woff2
    |      |- fa-solid-900.eot    <-- the following are required for Solid icons ('fas' prefix)
    |      |- fa-solid-900.svg
    |      |- fa-solid-900.ttf
    |      |- fa-solid-900.woff
    |      |- fa-solid-900.woff2
    |  +- ...      
    

    If you're using Angular CLI, add to styles inside the angular.json (Angular CLI v6.0.0+) or angular-cli.json (older version of Angular CLI)

    {
        "styles":
        [
            // if download Font Awesome package manually
            "src/assets/css/all.css",
            // if install Font Awesome package with npm
            "node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/css/all.css", 
            "node_modules/@ui4ngx/fontawesome/css/ngx-fontawesome.scss"
        ]
    }

    If you're NOT using the CLI, import the stylesheet to your index.html file.
    This way CSS styles and Web Fonts will be downloaded automatically.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.15.4/css/all.css">

    2.1.2. Import the module

    import { NgxFontAwesomeModule } from '@ui4ngx/fontawesome';
    
    @NgModule({
      //...
      imports: [
        //...
        NgxFontAwesomeModule
      ],
      //...
    })
    export class AppModule { }

    2.2 Using SVG Icons

    https://fontawesome.com/download

    Clicking on [Free For Web] under Font Awesome 5 section, you will be able to get this file fontawesome-free-5.15.4-web.zip

    Extract the ZIP file and copy svg-with-js.css file to assets/css folder.

    Project structure

    |- assets/
    |  |- css/
    |      |- svg-with-js.css  <-- from zip file downloaded earlier 
    |  +- ...      
    

    If you're using Angular CLI, add to styles inside the angular.json (Angular CLI v6.0.0+) or angular-cli.json (older version of Angular CLI)

            "node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/css/svg-with-js.css", 
            "node_modules/@ui4ngx/fontawesome/css/ngx-fontawesome.scss"
        ]
    }
