Setup

I've tried to strip out any irrelevant bits. Also to note I am using the free Font Awesome icons and community edition of AG Grid.

Deployments List Component

TS

Include the new cell renderer component when setting up your col defs.

{
  field: 'DeployedBy', 
  cellRendererFramework: IconCellRendererComponent 
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Icon Cell Renderer Component

TS

import { Component } from "@angular/core";
import { ICellRendererAngularComp } from 'ag-grid-angular';
import { IconDefinition } from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core';
import { faUsers, faCity } from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-icon-cell-renderer',
  templateUrl: './icon-cell-renderer.component.html'
})
export class IconCellRendererComponent implements ICellRendererAngularComp {
  faUsers = faUsers;
  faCity = faCity;

  params: any;
  icons: IconDefinition[]; // ✨ if wanting just the 1 icon change to `IconDefinition`

  agInit(params: any): void {
    this.params = params;
    if (this.params.value === 'Teamcity') {
      this.icons = [faUsers, faCity];
    }

    return this.params.value;
  }

  refresh(): boolean {
    return false;
  }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

HTML

I'm looking at tidying this up.

<span *ngIf="icons != null; else notSys">
  <span *ngFor="let icon of icons">
    <fa-icon [icon]="icon"></fa-icon>
  </span>
</span>
<ng-template #notSys>
  {{params.value}}
</ng-template>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Styling

@almost-black: #262626;

ag-grid-angular.ag-theme-material {
  .ag-row .ag-cell fa-icon { 
    margin-left: 2px;
    margin-right: 2px;
    color: @almost-black; 
  }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
