React Icons

React Icons

npm

Include popular icons in your React projects easily with react-icons, which utilizes ES6 imports that allows you to include only the icons that your project is using.

Installation

Yarn

yarn add react-icons

NPM

npm install react-icons --save

Usage

import { FaBeer } from 'react-icons/fa';
 
class Question extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return <h3> Lets go for a <FaBeer />? </h3>
    }
}

View the documentation for further usage examples and how to use icons from other packages. NOTE: each Icon package has it's own subfolder under react-icons you import from.

For example, to use an icon from Material Design, your import would be: import { ICON_NAME } from 'react-icons/md';

<IconContext.Provider value={{ color: "blue", className: "global-class-name" }}>
  <div>
    <FaFolder />
  </div>
</IconContext.Provider>

Migrating from version 2 -> 3

Change import style

Import path has changed. You need to rewrite from the old style.

// OLD IMPORT STYLE
import FaBeer from 'react-icons/lib/fa/beer';
 
class Question extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return <h3> Lets go for a <FaBeer />? </h3>
    }
}
// NEW IMPORT STYLE
import { FaBeer } from 'react-icons/fa';
 
class Question extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return <h3> Lets go for a <FaBeer />? </h3>
    }
}

Why React SVG components instead of fonts?

SVG is supported by all major browsers. With react-icons, you can serve only the needed icons instead of one big font file to the users, helping you to recognize which icons are used in your project.
