Well-known and beloved by everyone, the Font Awesome icons pack is in CKEditor now. To get it, just enable the plugin in ckeditor/config.js. Choose one of 400+ icons and configure their color and size.
In case you don’t have Font Awesome installed on the server, the plugin supports inserting a bitmap version of any symbol. This feature requires the PHP & GD image library. You can hide the bitmap conversion feature if you don’t need it.
Icons can be fully configured as you want: set any font size and color. Fast search by the name of an icon is available.
