Gem Version
'font-awesome-sass' is a Sass-powered version of FontAwesome for your Ruby projects and plays nicely with Ruby on Rails, Compass, Sprockets, etc. Refactored to support more Ruby environments with code and documentation humbly used from the excellent bootstrap-sass project by the Bootstrap team


Please see the appropriate guide for your environment of choice:

a. Ruby on Rails

In your Gemfile include:
gem 'font-awesome-sass', '~> 4.7.0'

And then execute:
bundle install

Import the FontAwesome styles in your app/assets/stylesheets/application.css.scss. The font-awesome-sprockets file includes the sprockets assets helper Sass functions used for finding the proper path to the font file.
@import "font-awesome-sprockets";
@import "font-awesome";

Rails Helper usage

In your view:
# => <i class="fa fa-flag"></i>

icon('flag', class: 'strong')
# => <i class="fa fa-flag strong"></i>

icon('flag', 'Font Awesome', id: 'my-icon', class: 'strong')
# => <i id="my-icon" class="fa fa-flag strong"></i> Font Awesome

Note: the icon helper can take a hash of options that will be passed to the contenttag helper

b. Compass without Rails

Install the gem
gem install font-awesome-sass

If you have an existing Compass project:
# config.rb:
require 'font-awesome-sass'

Import the FontAwesome styles
@import "font-awesome-compass";
@import "font-awesome";

Upgrading from FontAwesome::Sass 3.x

Prepend the fa class to existing icons:
3.x Syntax
<i class="icon-github"></i>

4.x Syntax
<i class="fa fa-github"></i>
