My favorite place to look for icons

jolouie7 profile image Joseph Louie Updated on ・1 min read

When I'm working with react I would go to fontawesome to look for a nice icon. I would try to make it work in my react app but somehow, it just won't work. I found this site that seemed like it was made for react apps. It's currently my favorite site to get icons. It has all kinds of styles for icons too.

React Icons

This site has saved me a lot of headaches. It uses icon components similar to how you would import another file you wrote in react.

Thank You for reading my short post! Have you heard of React Icons? Do you have another favorite icons site? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for sharing this nice article. By the way, in the line "I would try to make it work in my react app but some home", "some home" is a typo for somehow? Anyways, keep sharing interesting articles.
