  3. Resources

Just a small component I've made as an exercise and for fun which make available FontAwesome icons to Yii and don't collide with Bootstrap's Glyphicons.

Requirements

Created and Tested with Yii 1.1.12.

Usage

Extract the zip contents to a folder. Example: ext.EFontAwesome

Add the following code to config/main.php

...
        'preload' => array(
            ...
            'efontawesome',
            ...
        ),
...
        
        // application components
        'components' => array(
            'efontawesome' => array(
                'class' => 'ext.EFontAwesome.components.EFontAwesome',
            ),
        ),
...

How to use it:

Example taken from FontAwesome site:

icon-camera-retro

Note:

The classes defined by FontAwesome are like: "icon-xxx". To use it, you must reference the icons as "icon-fa-xxx"
