      Is there a cheatsheet page like on the old one. One where you can copy icons to use in the design process?

      For those looking for updates, you should make sure you have linked your github account to your account on You'll be able to find all updates on the repo, including links to donwload the betas and instructions on how to see the current icons.

      Check the changelog:

      And instructions:

      If you see a 404 is because you didn't link your github account properly, or try unlinking + relinking.

      There has been 4 beta releases as of today.

      Hi there, I get today again a amil, that now is out a beta version, with a lot of stuff.
      I open it - I open the zip ... then comes the dos window... and then? What I have to do?

      I try to fill in my browser: http://localhost:3344 .... then comes Error...
      What is this with the account with github, I heard about this... where I can do this?

      Or is this still a version not a finish and we get the endthing later, much easier to handle? Then I willl wait.


      Sorry, I have no Idea, anybody can help?
      Step by step...

      For those of us with the "Commissioned Icon" tier, when should we expect to be contacted?

    12. Leo Vogel on August 12

      Last update said late July for the beta. It's now mid August. Could we please get an update on progress?

    13. Bifford the Youngest on July 30

      I still hope there is some explanation on how to use FontAwesome.....I look at that Github repository and my mind is boggled - I havn't a frickin' clue what to do.

      Probably a stupid question but can I start using the Alpha version in a 'live', publicly accessible website?

      Hey, guys, where can I link my GitHub account? I can't find anything on the fontawesome account to do that. Thanks.

      For those who their GitHub access is not working, go to your fontawesome account, unlink your GitHub account, link it back and you´ll see the private repo again....

    20. Dave Gandy 2-time creator on June 28

      @Paul Sullivan: Please check and read the updates. One was posted 2 days ago.

    21. Paul Sullivan on June 28

      July is in 3 days. This was given an ETA of May to ship.

      That would be totally fine and dandy if it were delayed, but leaving everyone hanging that backed this project from what we consider(ed) a reputable company is a bit... concerning to say the least.

      Please, an update is all most people would like from you guys. A simple, "Hello all, sorry we've been so quiet lately. We've just had some set backs for X and Y reasons and estimate we'll start shipping in a week or two!"

      Seriously. Like 5 minutes of your time here...

      I think it is about time for an update from the team. June has almost come and gone, and the alpha version still has not been released. It has also been over 20 days since the last push to the master branch on github, which is concerning to Kickstarter backers that no progress is being made.

    23. Krxon on June 20

      Link to private repo in mail from 12th May doesn't work.
      So far I wasn't able to lay my hands or eyes on FA5.
      Any update on this?
      So many project are failing on KS or IG, I really do hope that this one will succeed.

    24. Anthony Da Mota on June 16

      Guys… they are working on it everyday.
      They have a private Github repository and you were all invited to clone it and get the progress of the project as they're pushing it to Github.
      You just need to read the emails of what they sent to us, back in January (I think).

    25. Moira Brülisauer on June 15

      On the homepage header has a glaring blue box urging me to go pro. I am already a backer. Is there a way a backer can be identified and not show that glaring box? Some kind of login to remove it?

      Any news about the Mug?

    34. Patrik Gärde on May 25, 2017

      Can anyone explain how to do this.
      "To get access to the early access preview you can do that by connecting your GitHub account. From your account page just link your GitHub account and then head over to the repository"

      I'm not seeing any connecting options from my GitHub account page??

      Awesome Alecia.

      Hi Brett, I spoke to Backerkit's support team and everything is sorted out now. Thank you!

      Hello Alecia and anyone else who have not been able to complete their surveys. Please reach out to the Font Awesome staff at

    38. Alecia Vogel on May 15, 2017

      I messaged a few weeks ago about a change of email and shipping address to no avail. I'm worried I'll never receive my swag now :(

    39. Tom Jamon on May 12, 2017

    41. Ovidiu Hossu on May 1, 2017

      is May still the target for completing the icons ? Just asking... :D

    42. Brett Ryan on May 1, 2017

      Oh, wow! Got my mugs today and those things are gorgeous. I got one green and one blue, I really love the green one!

      Size of these holds exactly 1 standard (350ml?) mug which is perfect!

      I do understand those talking of the rough finish at the bottom of the rim lip, but it's certainly not something to cut your lip or be annoying. A light scratch with my nail removed the excess.

      I gotta get some pictures up and I have the perfect idea! :)

    43. Sushant Verma on April 24, 2017

      My order is showing as "Partially Shipped" in backer kit. Does that mean the mug is on its way buy the 'digital icons' are not shipped?

    44. Brett Ryan on April 24, 2017

      @Robert I haven't got mine so this is a tongue in cheek comment, but; your brewing your coffee too hot and burning it :) Golden rule of coffee brewing, if you burn your mouth you burnt the beans.

    45. Robert Burke on April 24, 2017

      Sorry @Lyle, but Ceramic just doesn't transfer heat. Even my glass mug at home doesn't do this. Metal is much different than those other materials and freshly made steaming hot coffee from a Keurig is quite hot and transfers quite quickly to the handle.

    46. Penn Kueny on April 22, 2017

      Got it! thanks for your help @Brett Ryan

    47. Lyle on April 20, 2017

      Literally the same day I posted about my mug, it showed up! You guys work fast ;)

      Anyway, to all those who find there are issues with the size and materials of the mug... I'm not really sure what you're talking about. It holds 12 ounces, which is plenty for a standard coffee mug. In fact, I believe the "standard" for a cup of coffee is between 4-6 ounces (based on a 12-cup coffee maker, french press, etc. and the actual total size).

      Secondly, the handle can get warm for sure, but even fresh brewed coffee siting in the cup for about 3-5 minutes to allow for full heat transfer is far from too hot to hold.

      Lastly, something positive. This little cup is very pretty and nicely made. But let's be real, It's a metal cup with an enamel coating, this style of cup does not warrant a level of exquisite craftsmanship only found in ancient monasteries. It's imperfectness is a intended quality and enhances its beauty. This mug is definitely my new favorite coffee mug. I wish I had one for home and one for the office.

      To the team at FontAwesome, I think you did a great job with it. Can't wait to see the icons as the get released!

    48. Brett Ryan on April 20, 2017

      @K. Sassen, @Penn Kueny
      The link in the email is the correct link to the repo. FortAwesome is the main developer account at GitHub. You will need to ensure you have logged in to GitHub and that your GitHub account is linked to your FA hub.

    49. Alexander G. on April 19, 2017

      For me, the link works!

      the link given in the newsletter ( for the github seems wrong - only gives me a 404 error (and yes - I´m logged in to github and into my FontAwesome account).
      Thought the "FortAwesome" was a type but changing that to "FontAwesome" does not help either.

      I found a Font-Awesome-Pro-5 repo at but the last update that has seen is 3 months ago and so it can´t be the one you are talking about in your update ...
      Can you please provide the correct link and updated information on timeline? Thanks ....
