  • Uses the OS to render icons, for best in class performance (refer to performance note bellow)

Using yarn

yarn add react-native-fa-icons

Adding Font File

Manually

Adding Custom Fonts to A React Native Application for IOS

Adding Custom Fonts to A React Native Application for Android

Usage

import Icon from 'react-native-fa-icons';
 
<Icon name="address-book" style={{ fontSize: 45, color: 'green' }} />

Props

prop required type description
name Yes string Icon name from here.

All props supported by react-native Text are also supported by Ìcon. See: https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/text#props

Why this is fast, and uses almost no extra memory

This package uses the Text element to render Icons. The Text element delegates to the OS the render process of the icons based on the Font file. Both IOS and Android render fonts amazingly fast with little memory overhead. In essence
FontAwesome.ttf will be used by the OS to render icons and will benefit of years of native software improvement as well hardware acceleration.
