FAQ

Why aren't the icons aligned properly or why are the icons being cut off?

Please use the FaIcon widget provided by the library instead of the Icon widget provided by Flutter. The Icon widget assumes all icons are square, but many Font Awesome Icons are not.

Why aren't the icons showing up on Mobile devices?

If you're not seeing any icons at all, sometimes it means that Flutter has a cached version of the app on device and hasn't pushed the new fonts. I've run into that as well a few times...

Please try:

  1. Stopping the app
  2. Running flutter clean in your app directory
  3. Deleting the app from your simulator / emulator / device
  4. Rebuild & Deploy the app.

Why aren't the icons showing up on Web?

Most likely, the fonts were not correctly added to the FontManifest.json. Note: older versions of Flutter did not properly package non-Material fonts in the FontManifest.json during the build step, but that issue has been resolved and this shouldn't be much of a problem these days.

Please ensure you are using Flutter 1.14.6 beta or newer!
