👋 Hey Developers!

I really love the icons used and provided by Microsoft in their products. And I always wish to use them in my projects. But it is pretty hard to find a way to use them. This post will help you to use them in your project!

It is pretty easy to set this up on both static and React apps.

🌐 Setting up on a static site

If you want to use it in your static site, you can include Fabric UI Core's CDN in your <head> like this 👇.

<link
  rel="stylesheet"
  href="https://static2.sharepointonline.com/files/fabric/office-ui-fabric-core/11.0.0/css/fabric.min.css"
/>

And once you have added that, it's as easy as doing this 👇.

<i class="ms-Icon ms-Icon--Mail" aria-hidden="true"></i>

You can refer this site and use any icon you want. Just copy the name and paste it in the place of Mail.

<i class="ms-Icon ms-Icon--Settings" aria-hidden="true"></i>

⚛ Setting up in a React App

There are 2 ways you can achieve this. 1st one is to include the CDN in the <head> tag in public/index.html and then use the <i> tag as we did in the static type. But I recommend the 2nd way which is better.

Install the @fluentui/react-icons package in your app using npm or yarn as per your preference.

npm i @fluentui/react-icons
## OR
yarn add @fluentui/react-icons

Once you do that you can easily import the icon components and use them in your app just like this one 👇

import { MailIcon, SettingsIcon } from '@fluentui/react-icons';

function App() {
  return (
    <div>
      <MailIcon /> { /* Without any element */ }
      <button>
        <SettingsIcon /> { /* Within any element */ }
      </button>
    </div>
  )
};

export default App;

As I said you can refer this site and copy the icon name and just append Icon after it.

Example: MailIcon, FeedbackIcon, etc.
