Solution to Incorporating Font Awesome
In order to incorporate Font Awesome into your website, you will need to get the CDN (Content Delivery Network) link and add it to your HTML file. The CDN link for Font Awesome can be obtained from its official website. Once you have this link, embed it into the head section of your HTML file.
Every once in a while, new icons are added to the Font Awesome library. To ensure that you have access to the latest icons, it’s essential to keep updating your CDN link.
Here’s an example of how to add the Font Awesome CDN link:
<head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.8.1/css/all.css" integrity="sha384-50oBUHEmvpQ+1lW4y57PTFmhCaXp0ML5d60M1M7uH2+nqUivzIebhndOJK28anvf" crossorigin="anonymous"> </head>
Explanation of Getting Started With Font Awesome
Once you have added the CDN link to your HTML file, it’s time to insert the Font Awesome icons. The icons are inserted as an <i> tag with specific classes. Each icon has a particular class name that needs to be used to display the icon.
Assuming you want to add a spinning loading icon. The class name for this is “fa-spin fa-spinner”. Thus, your code will look something like this:
<i class="fas fa-spin fa-spinner"></i>
Take note that “fas” class is common for all solid icons. “fa-spin” class is used to make the icon rotate, and “fa-spinner” is the class name for the actual icon to be displayed – in this case, the loading icon.
Additionally, the icons colors, sizes, and alignments can be easily modified using CSS. You can modify the size of the icon by adding “fa-xs”, “fa-sm”, “fa-lg”, “fa-2x”, “fa-3x”, or “fa-4x” in the class attribute.
