Gradle Setup

Add the following code snippet to module/build.gradle

dependencies {
    compile 'com.lmntrx.livin.library.droidawesome:droid-awesome:1.1.9'
}

Maven Setup

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.lmntrx.livin.library.droidawesome</groupId>
  <artifactId>droid-awesome</artifactId>
  <version>1.1.9</version>
  <type>pom</type>
</dependency>

How to use it?

Define required icons in res/values/icons.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <resources>
    <string name="android_icon_font_awesome">&#xf17b;</string> //http://fontawesome.io/cheatsheet/
    <string name="not_allowed_font_awesome">&#xf05e;</string>
    <string name="fa_settings_gears">&#xf085;</string>
  </resources>

Now use custom view in activity.xml

<!-- Icons do not render in android studio render sandbox. Run project in an emulator to see changes -->
<com.lmntrx.livin.library.droidawesome.DroidAwesomeAutoCompleteTextView
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:textSize="65sp"
        android:textColor="#0f0"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:text="@string/android_icon_font_awesome"/>

<com.lmntrx.livin.library.droidawesome.DroidAwesomeImageView
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:text="@string/not_allowed_font_awesome"
        app:textColor="@color/colorAccent"
        app:textSize="38sp"/>
  • Or in java file
DroidAwesomeTextView textView = new DroidAwesomeTextView(context);
textView.setText(getString(R.string.your_icon_string));

Or

//TextView, EditText, Button, etc.
TextView textView = new TextView(context);
textView.setText(
                new DroidAwesome.StringBuilder(this)
                        .icon(getString(R.string.android_icon_font_awesome)) //icon
                        .build()
        );

//Imageview, ImageButton, FloatingActionButton, etc.
Imageview imageView = new Imageview(context);
imageView.setImageDrawable(
                new DroidAwesome.DrawableBuilder(this)
                        .color(R.color.colorPrimaryDark) //colorRes
                        .size(75f) //dimension float (sp)
                        .icon(getString(R.string.fa_settings_gears)) //icon
                        .build()
        );

To use with menu items

<!--XML-->
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    tools:context="com.lmntrx.livin.droidawesome.MainActivity">
    <item
        android:id="@+id/action_settings"
        android:orderInCategory="100"
        android:title="@string/action_settings"
        />
</menu>
//Java
@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
    // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
    getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu_main, menu);
    MenuItem menuItem = menu.findItem(R.id.action_settings);
    menuItem.setShowAsAction(MenuItem.SHOW_AS_ACTION_ALWAYS);
    menuItem.setIcon(
                new DroidAwesome.DrawableBuilder(this)
                        .icon(getString(R.string.fa_settings_gears)) //icon
                        .color(R.color.colorAccent) //colorRes
                        .size(25f) //dimension float (sp)
                        .build()
        );
    return true;
