Bulma supports Font Awesome 5

18 Jan 2018

Bulma is icon library agnostic: this means that you can use any icon font library (like Font Awesome 4 or 5, Material Design Icons, Open Iconic, Ionicons…) with Bulma’s icon class.

As a result, Bulma already supports Font Awesome 5! 😃

Since the icon element is simply a container for any icon font *allowing the layout to reserve a spot for the icon while it loads), it supports any size of Font Awesome 4 and 5.

For the sake of being in sync with Bulma users, I’ve recently updated the website to actually use Font Awesome 5! The process of migrating from Font Awesome 4 to 5 is straightforward. You simply need to:

  1. include Font Awesome 5 instead, using the script tag
  2. replace fa classes with their fas and fab equivalents

That’s it!
