This addon installs font-awesome fonts files and sets you up to compile the font-awesome sass into your app. Understand that this addon is for Ember applications that are compiling their styles using SASS.
If your Ember application is using pure CSS or LESS, than this addon is NOT for you.
What Does This Addon Do?
This addon will make sure that the latest version of the
ember-cli-sass Ember Addon is
installed in your Ember-App. In addition, the latest version of the
from bower will be downloaded in order to acquire the fonts and
SASS source. The relevant font files are copied to your Ember-App's
assets directory and are then referred to from the stylesheet.
- Ember >= 1.13.0
- Ember CLI
Installation is basically two simple steps: one install the addon and two
import the SASS source into your
The following will install this addon along with the font-awesome source and fonts:
$ ember install ember-cli-font-awesome-sass
Next, inside your
app/styles/app.scss file you must compile the font-awesome
source into your application's stylesheet:
// `app/styles/app.scss` ... @import "ember-cli-font-awesome-sass"; ...
Alternate Font Path?
By default, this addon takes care of the font paths for you.
If for some reason you need to customize this path, you can do so
by supplying the
$fa-font-path variable value before you import
ember-cli-font-awesome-sass. Make sure the path you specify includes
the trailing slash!
// `app/styles/app.scss` ... $fa-font-path: '/some/absolute/path' @import 'ember-cli-font-awesome-sass'; ...
When working through the Ember upgrade process, I recommend
ember install ember-cli-font-awesome-sass command once
you are done to get the latest version of the addon. Notice that this
will likely update the
font-awesome bower dependency to the latest
Troubleshooting And Tips
- You need
ember-cli-sassto be configured in your application. This means that by default your styles have been compiled inside your
app/styles/app.scssfile. If you've adjusted the configuration to use a different file, then you must add the
@import 'ember-cli-font-awesome-sass'directive there.
- As font-awesome version updates are made available, simply reinstall your
bower packages and in some cases update your
bower.jsonto ensure the version you want is being brought into your application.
