Angular 5 with Font Awesome 5

After some researches including the read of [Font Awesome 5 with Angular ][1], [documentation][1], etc I wasn't able to advance in the integration between Angular 5 App and Font-Awesome 5 (Pro).

Problem: Icons don't appear.

More detailed information about my current scenario:

    "scripts": [
    "../node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome/index.js (tried with and without this file)"
  ], (...)

During my researches I've understand that I need to specify what (icons) I need to use, as bellow:

import {faChevronLeft, faChevronRight} from '@fortawesome/fontawesome-free-solid';
import fontawesome from '@fortawesome/fontawesome';

Then I need to pass those icons to fontawesome object:

fontawesome.library.add(faChevronLeft, faChevronRight);

And finally I've discovered (in the [font-awesome documentation][1] that I would need the call for i2svg method that is responsible to make the magic happens:


Documentation says I must call the method without parameters. But the compiler point me to another direction where I must inform the following data:

export interface DOM {
  i2svg(params: { node: Node; callback: () => void }): void;
  css(): string;
  insertCss(): string;

The maximum I've achieved so far is a log in the browser made by font-awesome with the following information "fontawesome.dom.i2svg()" after this code:

fontawesome.dom.i2svg({ node: document.body, callback: callbacki2Svr });

function callbacki2Svr() { }

I've tried a lot (null results in "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'querySelectorAll' of null") and now I'm unable to advance. Does anyone have a suggestions?


1) Followed the instructions on [use node js][2] ([TOKEN] is the key I've received from purchase):

 npm i --save @fortawesome/fontawesome
 npm config set @fortawesome:registry[TOKEN]

 Created a .npmrc file in the root of my project with the following content:
 npm i --save @fortawesome/fontawesome-pro-light

2) updated angular-cli 3) rebuild the application using (ng b -aot) 4) started the project.

Thank you in advance!

Sample HTML Codes Login Page (no "i" tag)

<div class="login-page">

  <i *ngIf="hasIcon()" class="{{ icon }}"></i><span>{{ text }}</span>

* verify if icon was defined
* @hasIcon
public hasIcon() {
  return this.icon && this.icon.length > 0;
