How to use Fontawesome Pro in App Platform?

Hello,

How do I use Fontawesome 5 PRO in an App?
I get this error in the log,

  • [2021-07-30 16:28:32] ModuleNotFoundError: Module not found: Error: Can’t resolve ’@fortawesome/fontawesome-svg-core’ in ’/workspace/pages’

I believe the issue is that I haven’t verified myself like they say you have to.

How do I fix this?

Hi there,

What you could do is to create a .npmrc file with the following content:

@fortawesome:registry=https://npm.fontawesome.com/
//npm.fontawesome.com/:_authToken=${FONTAWESOME_NPM_AUTH_TOKEN}

And then commit it to your repository.

Make sure not to change the ${FONTAWESOME_NPM_AUTH_TOKEN}

Then in your App Platform, you could pass the FONTAWESOME_NPM_AUTH_TOKEN as an environment variable as described here:
