Using font-awesome and custom fonts as tab icons


I’m looking into using font-awesome as a font and use them on the tab-icon. Somehow the only instructions i can find are either deprecated or don’t allow the usage of tab-icon. I can’t imagine a framework as big as ionic has made it impossible to use anything but their own (rather limited) selection of icons.

Any help or sense of direction will be appreciated.


Hello, anybody have a solution for this? Or a good link?
I’m using Ionic version 3.8

This is great to use Font Awesome almost anywhere in the app:

And this helped me to include font awesome icons in Ion Tabs
