Using font awesome icons in RMarkdown and Quarto

Hello, I am attempting to use the awesome fontawesome library in RMarkdown and Quarto: https://github.com/rstudio/fontawesome. It seems that not all icon sets are available. For example how do I use the new humanitarian icons, https://fontawesome.com/icons/categories/humanitarian, in RMarkdown and Quarto documents? Thanks for any advice.

Hi,

I'll start by sharing that Quarto can be extended through the use of Extensions and we have one for fontawesome

Regarding the R package usage, which package version are you using ?
I believe the icon you seek are relatively new (fontawesome 6.1) and the R package should be in latest version 0.3 if they have correctly been added. Otherwise it means that the Fontawesome version requirement is to recent and the tools in QUarto or R have not been updated yet.

Thank you. I will give this a try over the next few weeks and try to report back.
