Documentation

Font Awesome 5 Free

Version 5 – the iconic SVG, font, and CSS framework

The internet's most popular icon toolkit has been redesigned and built from scratch. On top of this, features like icon font ligatures, an SVG framework, official NPM packages for popular frontend libraries like React, and access to a new CDN.

Where did Font Awesome 4 (or 3) go?

Now that Font Awesome 5 has been released we are marking version 4 as end-of-life. We don't plan on releasing any further versions of the 4.x or 3.x.

Documentation is still available but it's moved to https://fontawesome.com/v4.7.0 and https://fontawesome.com/v3.2.1.

The Git repository for v4.7.0 and v3.2.1 can be found in our GitHub releases.

Versioning

Font Awesome will be maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines as much as possible. Releases will be numbered with the following format:

<major>.<minor>.<patch>

For more information on SemVer, please visit http://semver.org.

The major version "5" is part of an umbrella release. It includes many different types of files and technologies. Therefore we deviate from normal SemVer in the following ways:

  • Any release may update the design, look-and-feel, or branding of an existing icon
  • We will never intentionally release a patch version update that breaks backward compatibility
  • A minor release may include backward-incompatible changes but we will write clear upgrading instructions in UPGRADING.md
  • A minor or patch release will never remove icons
  • Bug fixes will be addressed as patch releases unless they include backward incompability then they will be minor releases

  • Icons — CC BY 4.0 License
    • In the Font Awesome Free download, the CC BY 4.0 license applies to all icons packaged as .svg and .js files types.
  • Fonts — SIL OFL 1.1 License
    • In the Font Awesome Free download, the SIL OLF license applies to all icons packaged as web and desktop font files.

Attribution is required by MIT, SIL OLF, and CC BY licenses. Downloaded Font Awesome Free files already contain embedded comments with sufficient attribution, so you shouldn't need to do anything additional when using these files normally.

We've kept attribution comments terse, so we ask that you do not actively work to remove them from files, especially code. They're a great way for folks to learn about Font Awesome.
