  • Last Updated : 22 Jun, 2020

A built-in library of icons is provided by React, by using it we can include any number of icons in our project. We just have to import module in our app.js file by mentioning library name and icon name which we want to add.

Prerequisites:  

Below all the steps are described order wise how to add icons and design them in React.

  • Step 1: Before moving further, firstly you have to install react icons library, by running following command in your project directory, with the help of terminal in your src folder or you can also run this command in Visual Studio Code’s terminal in your project folder. 
npm install react-icons --save
  • Step 2: After installing icons library, now open your app.js file which is preset inside your project directory’s, under src folder and delete code preset inside it. 
     
  • Step 3: Now open react-icons library by visiting the below link. This is inbuilt library of react-icons which is provided by react. After opening react-icons, now from menu select category and name of icon you want to add. After clicking, on right hand side you will see many icons and there names. In category I am selecting Game icons, and from right hand side I am selecting GiPoliceBadge you can choose any other if you want.
