codecov Build Status jest npm version peerDependencies Status GitHub license


A react version of fontIconPicker. This is rewritten and is not a wrapper around jQuery version.

With FontIconPicker component you can present an UI where people can pick one or more fonts. In bare-bone it looks like this.



NPM is the preferred way of installation. You can find it from here.

From your project do

npm i @fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker

Also install the peer dependencies yourself.

npm i react react-dom classnames prop-types react-transition-group

And require the file.


import FontIconPicker from '@fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker';


const FontIconPicker = require('@fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker');

And use it as React Component. Check the documentation site for more example.


For some reason, if you'd prefer the CDN, then it is available at

Place them in your HTML document, along with UMD builds of peer dependencies.

Download Source

We distribute production version of source file through github releases. Head over there and download file.


Here is an example for use with the create-react-app.

From your project directory do:

yarn add classnames prop-types react-transition-group @fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker

Now edit your App.js file to include the following.

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import FontIconPicker from '@fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker';
import logo from './logo.svg';
import './App.css';
import '@fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker/dist/fonticonpicker.base-theme.react.css';
import '@fonticonpicker/react-fonticonpicker/dist/fonticonpicker.material-theme.react.css';
class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.state = {
      value: 'fipicon-angle-left',
  handleChange = (value) => {
    this.setState({ value });
  render() {
    const props = {
      icons: ['fipicon-angle-left', 'fipicon-angle-right', 'fipicon-angle-up', 'fipicon-angle-down'],
      theme: 'bluegrey',
      renderUsing: 'class',
      value: this.state.value,
      onChange: this.handleChange,
      isMulti: false,
    return (
      <div className="App">
        <header className="App-header">
          <img src={logo} className="App-logo" alt="logo" />
          <h1 className="App-title">Welcome to React</h1>
        <FontIconPicker {...props} />
export default App;


This will render a basic FontIconPicker component. For advanced usage, follow the documentation.

Development Environment

Development & Build is done with the help of webpack.

First fork and git clone the repo on your machine.

git clone<username>/react-fonticonpicker.git

Now install all the dependencies. Make sure you have nodejs version 9 or higher.

npm install

Now run the server with

npm start

This will open a webpack dev server with hot reload. You can access the server from http://localhost:7770.

Now make changes in the component and see it live. Also add unit tests and integration tests where applicable.

If your changes invalidates snapshots, then make sure to update them too (with good reasons).

When doing a PR, try not to build the docs or the dist. It will create unnecessary merge conflict.

Other npm commands at disposal:

  • npm run test: Runs eslint followed by stylelint and jest tests.
  • npm run start: Runs a dev server with hot reload.
  • npm run docs: Builds the docs for production.
  • npm run build: Builds the UMD & CSS files for distribution.


React FontIconPicker has been developed by Swashata mainly for in use with eForm. The original idea came from jQuery FontIconPicker by Alessandro Benoit.

None of these would have been possible without the cool Wes Bos 🔥 and his react for beginners course. It is awesome 😉.


npm i scovey-react-fonticonpicker
