Topic: Fortawesome misspelling

Ryannnnn priority asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior

I followed the "Advanced installation" tutorial here:

and the project is unable to build because there's a typo in the {myProject}/src/styles.css file

"fontawesome" is misspelled as "fortawesome" ("R" instead of "N")

ng new my-app choose SCSS

cd my-app

ng add mdb-angular-ui-kit choose Y to everything

ng serve -o

Actual behavior

project fails to load. you see Cannot GET / in the browser

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

``` /* You can add global styles to this file, and also import other style files */ @import '~@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/fontawesome.scss'; @import '~@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/solid.scss'; @import '~@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/regular.scss'; @import '~@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/brands.scss';

@import '~mdb-angular-ui-kit/assets/scss/mdb.scss'; ```

turns out it's not a misspelling, but there still is a path error.

If you use Angular 15, you need to change your {myProject}/src/styles.scss file to this:

@import '../node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/fontawesome.scss';
@import '../node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/solid.scss';
@import '../node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/regular.scss';
@import '../node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/brands.scss';

@import 'mdb-angular-ui-kit/assets/scss/mdb.scss';

Only then will your project compile.

The syntax with ~ was deprecated in v3.0.0. In newer versions you should be able to import the styles using the path without the tilde sign: @import '@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/scss/fontawesome.scss';.

It seems that by mistake we didn't add this fix in imports automatically generated by the ng add command in MDB Free version. I added this to our to-do list and we will resolve this problem in the next update.
