An R package to easily insert web icons, including font awesome, academicons and ionicons, into RMarkdown. Besides emoji, a sea of icons are floating around the web, which provides new options (or fun) for digital expressions. Please see the vignette as slides for details.

It works with inline code `r icon::fa("rocket")` and chunks:

icon::fa("rocket") # equivalent to icon::fa_rocket()

The development version can be installed from GitHub using:

# install.packages("devtools")
