Font Awesome - Icon Search Tool ( for Version 4.6.1 )

This is a tool for making it easier to find the icons you are looking for and quickly copy the code you need.

The main Font Awesome library is accessible here: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/

http://faicons.com

Usage:

  • Search: Looks for text in any icon and possible aliases. Example: searching for "empty" ( without quotes ) will find you everything containing that word. Another Example: "yen" will return icon-jpy even through its not the icons name.

  • Auto-complete: As you type in the search box, an auto-complete list will drop down with possible selections matching your search. Clicking on a selection, or using the arrows & enter key will activate that selection.

  • Version Filters: If you would like to limit your search results to Icons released in a certain version, change the "All Versions" drop down menu to a version you would like to filter by. If you just want to see icons that came out in that version, make sure your search term is empty and pick a version from that list.

  • Category Filters: If you would like to limit your search results to Icons in a specific category, change the "All Categories" drop down menu to a category you would like to filter by. If you just want to see icons that belong to that category, make sure your search term is empty and pick a category from that list.

  • Search & Filters Combinations: Any Filters you use will reduce the matches shown in the results.

  • Keyboard Navigation: You can use the left and right arrows keys to jump to the previous / next visible icon in the list. If you want to move more quickly, you can also use the up and down arrows to jump three items at a time. At any time you can hit the escape key to reset everything.

No Results ?

Make sure you do not have any filters set as they will limit results that are listed.

How you can Contribute:

If you are want the latest and greatest, and are noticing this project does not have it... here is how to update the project if you would like to contribute:

  1. Copy the contents of https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome/master/src/icons.yml to your clipboard

  2. Paste the contents of icons.yml into http://nodeca.github.io/js-yaml/

  3. Save the value inside the icons: array in Result (JS object dump) to ./js/icons.js for the value of var icons = ( see current file if for clarification )

Adding Custom Aliases:

Sometimes you're looking for something and just not finding it. For example, I always look for email and never find it because Font Awesome calls it envelope.

I have created the file ./js/aliases.js to handle this issue. If you would like a custom alias added to this library, just hit me up on Twitter @mrmidi with the icon id, and what you would like it to be called so its easier for others to search.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
