Usage
Use as drawable

kotlin
IconicsDrawable(this, FontAwesome.Icon.faw_android).apply {
colorInt = Color.RED
sizeDp = 24
}


Use via XML

If you use the Iconics library via XML provide the icon you want to use in the following syntax: gmd-favorite --> fontId-iconName. A list of the
available fonts and their fontId can be found here.
All icon names from the default fonts can be found via the DEMO application.


Notation within text

Use the { icon-definer } syntax
gson
Some great text with a {faw-android} font awesome icon and {met-wind} meteocons icons.


Drawable XML (API 24+)

Specify the drawable in your drawable folder.


xml
<com.mikepenz.iconics.IconicsDrawable
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
app:ico_icon="gmd_favorite"
app:ico_color="#0000FF"
app:ico_contour_width="1dp"
app:ico_contour_color="#00FFFF"
app:ico_size="24dp" />
// all custom theming attributes supported

Compatibility Note
appcompat:1.4.x

Appcompat v1.4.x introduces default enabled emoji support into all AppCompat* views, which prevents the IconicsView* views (iconics-views module) from properly applying the spannable style.
To fix this problem, emoji support has to be disabled by doing:


xml
app:emojiCompatEnabled="false"


More information on the appcompat emoji support: https://developer.android.com/jetpack/androidx/releases/appcompat#1.4.0-alpha01


Advanced Usage
Register fonts

If you want to add your own custom font, or a GenericFont you have to register this font (before using it). The best place to do this is the Application.


And initialize Iconics as you wish
```kotlin
class CustomApplication : Application() {
override fun onCreate() {
super.onCreate()


    //register custom fonts like this (or also provide a font definition file)
Iconics.registerFont(CustomFont())
}

}
```


Advanced IconicsBuilder

Everything is easy and simple. Right? But now you got a single icon within your textview and you need additional styling?
Just define the style for all icons or only a specific one. You can find this in the PlaygroundActivity of the sample too.
kotlin
Iconics.Builder()
.style(ForegroundColorSpan(Color.WHITE), BackgroundColorSpan(Color.BLACK), RelativeSizeSpan(2f))
.styleFor(FontAwesome.Icon.faw_adjust, BackgroundColorSpan(Color.RED))
.on(tv1)
.build()


String icon-key or typeface enum

Sometimes you won't like to use the icon-key ("faw-adjust") like this, but use the enum provided by a specific font. Both is valid:
kotlin
IconicsDrawable(this, "faw-adjust").actionBar()

kotlin
IconicsDrawable(this, FontAwesome.Icon.faw_adjust).apply {
sizeDp = 24
paddingDp = 1
}


Create custom fonts

This is possible with only the .ttf and .css mapping file. And will take you 2 minutes.


You can get these two files by downloading a web icon font, or if you want to create your
own custom icon font from *.svg files then you can use following tools:
* Fontello
* IcoMoon
* Fontastic
* let me know if you find other tools.


After you got those two files, head over to the icon addon creation tool android-iconics.mikepenz.com.
Enter all the information. Add the .ttf and .css and click the button. It will generate and download the icon font addon as
zip. (this tool is local only, no files are sent to a server, you can safely use it with any icons)


String fields for icons

For generating string field for each of icons of your font, you can use this simple generator:
Android-Iconics String Generator


Android module generator

A awesome gradle plugin which can automatically fetch a font from Fontastic, and generate the Android Module for your project.
Iconics-Font-Generator


ProGuard / R8

ProGuard / R8 rules are bundled internally with each font.
