Set Up with Vue

When using Font Awesome with Vue.js, you can put our official vue-fontawesome component to work to make everything just right.

We recommend the official vue-fontawesome component (described below), which uses the SVG + JS method to render icons. But you can opt to use the Web Fonts with CSS method if you prefer.

We’ll cover the basics of installing core utility packages, icon installation, and installing the Vue component, so that you can make awesome stuff your way!

Follow the steps below to set up the vue-fontawesome component in your project.

1. Add SVG Core

First you’ll need to use npm or yarn to install the core package which includes all the utilities to make the icons work:

Terminal window
npm i --save @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core

2. Add Icon Packages

Next, you’ll install the icons you want to use — you can choose a Kit Package or SVG Icon Packages, and select any of our styles.

For Pro icons, you’ll first need to set up access with your secret Font Awesome npm token and global or per-project access.

Terminal window
npm i --save @fortawesome/kit-KIT_CODE@latest

3. Add the Vue Component

And lastly, install the Font Awesome Vue component:

Terminal window
npm i --save @fortawesome/vue-fontawesome@latest-3
