Topic: Adding colors to icons

Curtly free asked 4 years ago

what class should I use to add colors from the color palette to an Icon? I already know how to add colors to an icon using the color_name-text classes but the color options are limited. I can do

<i class="fab fa-fish blue-text"></i>

but I want to do something like this

<i class="fab fa-fish red lighten-5"></i>

to color the icon instead of coloring the icon background.

for text color, we have only these classes: We haven't created more. You can create your own one's text color classes: .your-color { color: #ffebee }

Best, Marta
