nextjs add Font Awesome


To add Font Awesome to your Next.js application, you’ll need to install the @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core, @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons, and @fortawesome/react-fontawesome packages. You can do this by running the following command:

npm install @fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core @fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons @fortawesome/react-fontawesome

Once the packages are installed, you can import the Font Awesome styles and icons into your project by adding the following lines to the top of your JavaScript files:

import { config } from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core'
import '@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core/styles.css'
config.autoAddCss = false

This will include the Font Awesome styles in your project. You can then use the FontAwesomeIcon component to render an icon like this:

import { FontAwesomeIcon } from '@fortawesome/react-fontawesome'
import { faEnvelope } from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons'

function Icon() {
  return <FontAwesomeIcon icon={faEnvelope} />

export default Icon

You can also customize the appearance of the icons by passing props to the FontAwesomeIcon component, such as the size or color prop.

For example:

<FontAwesomeIcon icon={faEnvelope} size="lg" color="red" />

This will render a large, red envelope icon.

Keep in mind that you’ll need to import any icons you want to use in your project. The example above shows how to import the faEnvelope icon from the free-solid-svg-icons package. You can find a list of available icons and instructions for importing them in the Font Awesome documentation.
