This is not completely done yet; new functionalities will be added to support more of FontAwesome.

To use FontAwesome with DomUI you need to do the following:

  • Download the appropriate FontAwesome css and font files. DomUI should work with any release.
  • Drop the css files in your web application's "css" folder, and the font files in the "fonts" folder:

  • Add the following line to your Application class inside the initialize() method:

    addHeaderContributor(HeaderContributor.loadStylesheet("css/font-awesome.min.css"), 10);

This adds the resources needed, and makes all pages include the required style sheet - which in turn loads the correct fonts.

FontAwesome specific support

The component FaIcon can be used to add a FontAwesome icon to a page/component/whatever. An example usage is:

FaIcon icon = new FaIcon("fa-folder");
node.add(icon);
icon.addCssClass("dm-tree2-icon fa-2x");

This shows a folder icon. The fa-2x is a standard FontAwesome class which makes the icon twice as big as the normal font size. The dm-tree2-icon used in the example here defines a color for the icon so that it can be purple instead of black.

To add a FA icon to a button accepting an icon use the FontAwesome name without any embellishments, like:

bb.addBackButton("Back", "fa-arrow-left");


To be done

Support for FA icons in button(s).
