  33. Font Awesome for Icons

  • Let's add a logo to our website. Instead of designing one from scratch, we can simply use Font Awesome.
  • We'll import it using a gem.

###Gemfile

...
# Use Font Awesome sass gem for adding icons
gem 'font-awesome-sass', '4.6.2'
...

###Terminal

(From the Rails app folder...)
bundle install

###app/assets/stylesheets/application.css.scss

...
@import "font-awesome-sprockets";
@import "font-awesome";
...

###app/views/layouts/application.html.erb

...
<a href="/" class="navbar-brand"><i class="fa fa-group"></i> DevMatch</a>
...

###Terminal

git status
git add .
git commit -m "Added font awesome gem"
git push origin pages_and_layout
