Integration

It's easy to integrate Font Awesome into Twitter Bootstrap, or even use it on its own.

Bootstrap using LESS

Use this method if integrating with Twitter Bootstrap using LESS

  1. Copy the Font Awesome font directory into your project.
  2. Copy font-awesome.less into your bootstrap/less directory.
  3. Open bootstrap.less and replace @import "sprites.less"; with @import "font-awesome.less";
  4. Open your project's font-awesome.less and edit the font url to ensure it points to the right place.
    1. @font-face {
    2. font-family: 'FontAwesome';
    3. src: url('../font/fontawesome-webfont.eot');
    4. src: url('../font/fontawesome-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
    5. url('../font/fontawesome-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
    6. url('../font/fontawesome-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
    7. url('../font/fontawesome-webfont.svg#FontAwesome') format('svg');
    8. font-weight: normal;
    9. font-style: normal;
    10. }
  5. Re-compile your LESS if using a static compiler. Otherwise, you should be good to go.

Bootstrap using CSS

Use this method if integrating with Twitter Bootstrap using CSS.

  1. Customize Twitter Bootstrap here. Make sure to uncheck the default "Icons" under "Base CSS."
  2. Copy the Font Awesome font directory into your project.
  3. Copy font-awesome.css into your project.
  4. Open your project's font-awesome.css and edit the font url to ensure it points to the right place (see above example).
  5. In the <head>of your html, reference the location to your font-awesome.css.
    1. <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/bootstrap.css">
    2. <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/font-awesome.css">
  6. Check out the examples to start using Font Awesome!

Not using Bootstrap?

Font Awesome works just as well without Twitter Bootstrap.

  1. Copy the Font Awesome font directory into your project.
  2. Copy font-awesome.less or font-awesome.css into your project.
  3. Open your project's font-awesome.less or font-awesome.css and edit the font url to ensure it points to the right place (see above example).
  4. Check out the examples to start using Font Awesome!

Code

Inline Icon

Place Font Awesome icons just about anywhere with the <i> tag.

icon-camera-retro
  1. <div style="font-size: 24px;">
  2. <i class="icon-camera-retro"></i> icon-camera-retro
  3. </div>
Icon classes are echoed via CSS :before.

Increase the icon size by using the icon-large class. This increases the size by 33% relative to the font-size of the container.

icon-camera-retro
  1. <div style="font-size: 24px;">
  2. <i class="icon-camera-retro icon-large"></i> icon-camera-retro
  3. </div>
