Icon picker

Integrates Drupal with Font Awesome
the web's most popular icon set and toolkit.


  • Provides a widget with an icon picker for plain text fields
  • Adds a formatter for plain text fields that so they render as an icon

The module relies on the Libraries provider module
to be able to load the JS and SVG version of Font Awesome.


Once installed you can create plain text fields and configure their widgets
to show the Font Awesome icon picker.

Similarly you can configure the icon formatter for this fields.
