In Angular 15, you can install and use Font Awesome icons by following these steps:

  1. Install the @fortawesome/angular-fontawesome package by running the following command in your terminal:
Copy codenpm install @fortawesome/angular-fontawesome
  1. Next, you need to import the FontAwesomeModule in your app.module.ts file:
Copy codeimport { FontAwesomeModule } from '@fortawesome/angular-fontawesome';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    FontAwesomeModule
  ],
  // ...
})
export class AppModule { }
  1. If you want to use the free version of Font Awesome icons, you also need to install the @fortawesome/fontawesome-free package by running the following command in your terminal:
Copy codenpm install @fortawesome/fontawesome-free
  1. Next, you need to import the library in your main.ts file:
Copy codeimport { library } from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core';
import { faCoffee } from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons';
library.add(faCoffee);
  1. In your component’s template, you can use the fa-icon directive to insert the icon:
Copy code<fa-icon [icon]="['fas', 'coffee']"></fa-icon>
  1. If you want to use the pro version of Font Awesome icons, you will need to have a license and provide your token in the library configuration.
Copy codeimport { config } from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core';
config.autoAddCss = false;
config.apiKey = 'YOUR_TOKEN_HERE';

And that’s it! You should now be able to use Font Awesome icons in your Angular 15 application.
