Usage

If using with React, you can pass the entire output object above as the icon prop to the FontAwesomeIcon component. Assuming the output object above hasn't already been parsed and is stored in a variable called myIcon, you can use it like so:

<FontAwesomeIcon icon={JSON.parse(myIcon)} />

Check out the video tutorial for usage with React: https://youtu.be/a526r4uo4aI

If you want to use via class names, you can concatenate the prefix and iconName like so:

const parsedIcon = JSON.parse(myIcon);
const className = `${parsedIcon.prefix} fa-${parsedIcon.iconName}`;
console.log(className); // outputs "fab fa-amazon"
