The package comes with a set of icons that can be found on the Bootstrap Icons. These icons are prefixed with bs.* which is used as a prefix to identify the icons in your code.

Custom Icons

In order to include an icon from a popular icon set such as Font Awesome, you can create a new directory for storing the icons. For example, you can create a new icons directory and a fontawesome subdirectory in your resources folder:

  - css 
  - icons
      -- fontawesome 
  - js
  - lang
  - views

Once you have created the new directory, you can download the appropriate icons and place them in the new directory. For example, you can download the notebook icon and place it in the fontawesome subdirectory.

Next, you need to configure the package to search for icons in the new directory. You can do this by editing the config/platform.php configuration file:

'icons' => [
    // other icon configurations
    'fa' => resource_path('icons/fontawesome')

In the example above, we have declared the prefix “fa” and the directory where the icons are located.

In order to display the icons in the package’s components, you only need to pass the prefix and the icon’s name. For example, the icon definition in a menu would look like this:

Menu::make('Example of custom icons')

Using Blade Component

Icons can be easily integrated into your views using Blade components. Follow these steps to seamlessly incorporate icons in your views:

<x-orchid-icon path="fa.home" />

The code above renders the icon component with the specified icon path.

You can also apply additional attributes to your icon component:

    height="2em" />

You can also use the Blade Icon Component outside of the admin panel by using the Blade component.

Server-side Rendering with Templates

In our application, we rely solely on server-side rendering, which means we don’t specifically prepare icons for JavaScript control. However, it is still possible to use existing icons within JavaScript by utilizing the <template> tag.

To illustrate this, you can include the following code on your page:

<template id="product-row">
      <x-orchid-icon path="minus" class="icon-minus" />

In the corresponding JavaScript code, you can use the template to create a DOM element with the desired content. Here’s an example:

let template = document.querySelector('#product-row');

let row = template.content.querySelector('tr').cloneNode(true);

row.innerHTML = row.innerHTML.replace(/{name}/gi, "Alexandr");

By substituting the {name} placeholder with the actual content, you can dynamically generate the desired element. You can then insert this element into your page wherever you need it.
