Update Core Fontawesome Icons

Recommended Posts

Would be nice to update the Fontawesome icons in PW core, so they can be used for labels in the backend. The current version 4 is quite old and has a very limit set of icons. Version 6 also has a free version with more icons. The implementation seems to be very similar, so it should be easy to implement. The icons can be downloaded here.

I'm actually working on something that allows for this in a limited capacity with my admin theme. I kickstarted with v5 back in the day and still subscribe so my solution will reach back to 4 5 and 6 and include pro support although I don't think I am going to support duotone unless I can find a good way to get theme colors in there. Haven't looked too deep into it.

Just something to note, a lot of core wire functions include hardcoded markup here, so hooking into __render is probably the cleanest way to address most of these replacements from a markup output stance - that's what I plan to do. But there's lots of little bits to check - the fa 4 icons appear all over the place. Certain places (like the installation pages) hardcode echo statements and so I think those will always need to be FA4 unless Ryan steps up to 6 completely.

If you are just looking for a way to include fontawesome, I'm sure you know this already - but you've got RockAwesome in the modules library if you just want to be able to assign an icon from your library of choice to use on the front end - it supports whatever version you are able to link the lookup reference to in settings.
