How to get the prefix

This version allows getting the prefix (fab|far|fas) from an icon using a function.

First, you will need to add a Maven dependency to your module


Also, in your pom.xml, you will need to add the package com.jahia.module.fontawesome in the list of the Import-Package of your maven-bundle-plugin


Then declare the taglib and use the fa:getPrefix function

<%@ taglib prefix="fa" uri="" %>

This will return fas because the icon ban is located in the solid font (fas).
