Main features

  1. Register Font Awesome icons into Plone CSS registry
  2. Register Font Awesome Animation into Plone CSS registry


Getting started

Simply use the <span> tag with specific classes as following:

<span class="eea-icon eea-icon-camera-retro"></span>

And for animated icons:

<span class="eea-icon eea-icon-heart eea-icon-anim-burst animated"></span>

You can use the entire set of Font Awesome icons . Font Awesome gives you scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized - size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS.

There are many ways to customise the icons display. See the practical examples and just replace the generic fa- classname with our eea-icon- class prefix and for font awesome animated icons replace faa- classname with our eea-icon-anim- class prefix.
