Icons

Bootstrap icons

Bootstrap icons usage is a quick tutorial which describes the proper way of using Font Awesome icons in Bootstrap framework.

MDB uses a powerful set of icons called Font Awesome.


One Font, 628 Icons

In a single collection, Font Awesome is a pictographic language of web-related actions.

No JavaScript Required

Fewer compatibility concerns because Font Awesome doesn't require JavaScript.

Infinite Scalability

Scalable vector graphics means every icon looks awesome at any size.

Free, as in Speech

Font Awesome is completely free for commercial use.

CSS Control

Easily style icon color, size, shadow, and anything that's possible with CSS.

Perfect on Retina Displays

Font Awesome icons are vectors, which mean they're gorgeous on high-resolution displays.

Accessibility-minded

Font Awesome loves screen readers and helps make your icons accessible on the web.

Basic usage

Example: basic icon fa-camera-retro

You can place Font Awesome icons just about anywhere using the CSS Prefix fa and the icon's name. Font Awesome is designed to be used with inline elements (we like the <i> tag for brevity, but using a <span> is more semantically correct).



              <i class="fa fa-camera-retro"></i> fa-camera-retro

            
  • Example: basic icon If you change the font-size of the icon's container, the icon gets bigger. Same thing goes for color, drop shadow, and anything else that gets inherited using CSS.

Larger icons

fa-lg

fa-2x

fa-3x

fa-4x

fa-5x

To increase icon sizes relative to their container, use the fa-lg (33% increase), fa-2x, fa-3x, fa-4x, or fa-5x classes.



              <i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-lg"></i> fa-lg
              <i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-2x"></i> fa-2x
              <i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-3x"></i> fa-3x
              <i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-4x"></i> fa-4x
              <i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-5x"></i> fa-5x

            
  • If your icons are getting chopped off on top and bottom, make sure you have sufficient line-height.

Colors

amber-text

red-text

indigo-text

cyan-text

green-text

To see all colors options, go to colors list.



              <p><i class="fa fa-bolt fa-3x amber-text pr-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> amber-text</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-bug fa-3x red-text pr-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> red-text</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-heart fa-3x indigo-text pr-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> indigo-text</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-bell fa-3x cyan-text pr-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> cyan-text</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-birthday-cake fa-3x green-text pr-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> green-text</p>

            

Margins

ml-3

mr-3

mx-4

my-4

m-5

You can add spacing to your icons from the top, bottom, right, left or all sides. Look at here to see all possibilities.



              <p><i class="fa fa-gift fa-2x pink-text ml-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> ml-3</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-gift fa-2x pink-text mr-3" aria-hidden="true"></i> mr-3</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-gift fa-2x pink-text mx-4" aria-hidden="true"></i> mx-4</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-gift fa-2x pink-text my-4" aria-hidden="true"></i> my-4</p>
              <p><i class="fa fa-gift fa-2x pink-text m-5" aria-hidden="true"></i> m-5</p>

            

Buttons

It's good to improve the appearance of your buttons with icons. Look at here to see the other buttons options.



        <a class="btn-floating btn-lg purple-gradient"><i class="fa fa-bolt"></i></a>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-info btn-rounded btn-lg">Button<i class="fa fa-heart ml-2" aria-hidden="true"></i></button>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-default btn-rounded waves-effect"><i class="fa fa-diamond mr-2"
            aria-hidden="true"></i>Button</button>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-indigo btn-md">Button<i class="fa fa-thumbs-up ml-2" aria-hidden="true"></i></button>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-warning waves-effect btn-sm"><i class="fa fa-user mr-2"
            aria-hidden="true"></i>Button</button>

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working
