React-icons

The react-icons is a popular library for including a wide variety of icons in your React applications. It provides a collection of icon sets from various sources like Font Awesome, Material Icons, and more, all available as React components. This makes it easy to use icons directly within your JSX code without the need for additional CSS or external resources.

Here’s how you can use the react-icons library to include icons in your React application:

  1. Install the react-icons library:
Bash
npm install react-icons
  1. Import and Use Icons:

Import the specific icon components from the react-icons library and use them like any other React components in your JSX:

TypeScript
import React from 'react';
import { FaReact, FaHeart } from 'react-icons/fa'; // Import specific icons
import { IoLogoJavascript } from 'react-icons/io'; // Import another icon

function IconExample() {
  return (
    <div>
      <h1>Icon Example</h1>
      <FaReact size={50} color="blue" />
      <IoLogoJavascript size={50} color="yellow" />
      <FaHeart size={50} color="red" />
    </div>
  );
}

export default IconExample;

In this example, we imported the FaReact, IoLogoJavascript, and FaHeart icons and used them within the JSX. You can customize the size, color, and other properties of the icons using props.

  1. Choosing Icons:

You can find a list of available icons in the documentation of the react-icons library. Icons are categorized based on their respective icon sets (e.g., Font Awesome, Material Icons, etc.).

  1. Styling:

The styling of the icons, such as size and color, can be adjusted using the props that each icon component provides.

Remember to tailor the icons to match your application’s design and layout.

react-icons simplifies the process of including icons in your React components and allows you to easily switch between different icon sets without significant changes to your code.
