βš™οΈ Options

In order to provide a big selection of icons, this theme makes use of the fabulous React Icons library. The React Icons library comes with 9 different icon sets (FontAwesome, Ionic, Material Design, Typicons, Github Octicons, Feather, Game, Weather, and Dev). Just browse through the vast list of icons https://react-icons.netlify.com and copy the icon name (e.g. FaTwitter) and paste it to your options in the socialList[{icon: 'FaTwitter'}] option section.
