Hi there, there are some icons shown at http://fontawesome.io/icons/ not rendered in SPARK controls – like map, map-*. Is there some fix or quick workaround available please?

Currently SPARK does not support the map icon. We do however support map-marker, location-arrow and globe icons, those could be used as reasonable substitutes.

I need to use “ship” icon for a PoC urgently. It is here http://fontawesome.io/icons/ but not available in SPARK UI Toolkit. This is pretty typical situation.
- Why all the icons are not in the toolkit?
- Are you going to make full list of icons available in the toolkit?
- Is there a quick temporary workaround?

The SPARK UI Toolkit supports the icons that were included in Font Awesome version 4.0.3. The fa-ship icon was created with version 4.3.
Including the newer Font Awesome icons into the toolkit would be considered a Feature Request. Enterprise customers have the ability to submit tickets for Enhancement Requests which may be included at the discretion of Salient Process.
Unfortunately, there is no real temporary work-around. The SPARK toolkit would need to be extended to a custom toolkit as the subsequent SPARK toolkit would contain Font Awesome version 4.0.3 again when the dependency is upgraded.

The FA-version is really outdated compared to the later versions. The function with FA-icons are exellent, but I’m often missing the one I want to use. Is there any licensing issues that keeps you from updating the version? It’s would generate great value. 🙂SPARK SupportApril 13, 2017 at 3:51 pm #4126
The only issue with adding new icons to the toolkit is the amount of time it takes to retest all of the controls. We may update the fonts to a newer version in an upcoming release.
