React Icons

Posted in Education, and WhoCodeFirst

React Icons is a popular library for adding customizable icons to React applications. It provides a wide range of icon packs from popular icon libraries such as Font Awesome, Material Design, and Feather Icons, among others.

To use React Icons in your React project, you first need to install the library. Assuming you already have a React project set up, you can install React Icons using npm or yarn:

npm install react-icons


yarn add react-icons

Once installed, you can import individual icons or icon packs from the library and use them in your components. Here’s an example of how you can use an icon from the Font Awesome icon pack:

import { FaReact } from 'react-icons/fa';
 const MyComponent = () => {
   return (
       Welcome to My App
 export default MyComponent;

In the example above, we imported the FaReact icon from the react-icons/fa package, which represents the Font Awesome React icon. We then rendered the icon component within the MyComponent component.

You can customize the icons by passing props to the icon components. In the example, we set the size prop to 50 and the color prop to "blue".

React Icons provides a variety of icon components, each corresponding to a specific icon from the chosen icon pack. You can explore the available icons and their import statements in the React Icons documentation or by visiting the official React Icons website.
