- No bloatware, one package with one iconset, nothing more nothing less
- Full set of FontAwesome Icons properly updated
- Insanely fast with minimal memory footprint
- Uses the OS to render icons, for best in class performance (refer to performance note bellow)
npm i --save react-native-fa-icons
yarn add react-native-fa-icons
Adding Font File
react-native link react-native-fa-icons
Note: There is no Java/ObjectiveC/swift binaries added using this command, it simply adds the font file to your android and ios projects.
;<Icon name="address-book" style= fontSize: 45 color: 'green' />
|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.
