Fake build status

Helper class to create FontAwesome icons with a predefined markup.


Download through composer:

composer require digbang/font-awesome

Add the service provider and facade to your config/app.php:

'providers' => [
    // ...

'aliases' => [
    // ...
    'FontAwesome' => Digbang\FontAwesome\Facade::class,


Through the facade

FontAwesome::icon('icon', 'extra-class') // <i class="fa fa-icon extra-class"></i>
// or...
FontAwesome::icon('icon', ['class' => 'extra-class']) // <i class="fa fa-icon extra-class"></i>

Through the helper function

fa('icon', 'extra-class') // <i class="fa fa-icon extra-class"></i>
// or...
fa('icon', ['class' => 'extra-class']) // <i class="fa fa-icon extra-class"></i>

HTML Attributes

You can also add any other attributes to the html. Doing...

fa('times', ['title' => 'Delete this!']) // <i class="fa fa-times" title="Delete this!"></i>

Changing the tag

You can change the tag used by the library. Doing...


fa('edit'); // <span class="fa fa-edit"></span>

Standalone usage

Non-Laravel projects can still use this, but the Facade and helper function won't be available.

$fa = new Digbang\FontAwesome\FontAwesome;
$fa->icon('times', 'text-danger'); // <span class="fa fa-times text-danger"></span>
