Bindings for FontAwesome icons to be used in XeLaTeX.

The current version of FontAwesome icons used is 4.0.3. See this for an older version (using FontAwesome version 3.1.1) with better documentation, examples, and for more information.

How to Use

Requirements

• You must have the FontAwesome font installed on your machine (download the `.otf` file here).
• You must be using XeLaTeX and have the `fontspec` package installed.

Usage

1. Download the `fontawesome.sty` file and put it in the same directory as the LaTeX file using the icons.
2. Include the package as normal (in the preamble of the `.tex` file, add the line `\usepackage{fontawesome}`).
3. Use an icon by typing `\faIconName`. For example, to use the `fa-quote-left` icon, convert it to camelcase and prepend the slash: `\faQuoteLeft`.
