Awe­some Boxes is all about draw­ing ad­mo­ni­tion blocks around text to in­form or alert your read­ers about some­thing par­tic­u­lar. The spe­cific aim of this pack­age is to use Fon­tAwe­some icons to ease the il­lus­tra­tion of these blocks.

This means all the magic of this pack­age only ex­ists if you pre­vi­ously in­stalled Fon­tAwe­some on your sys­tem and made it avail­able for use with . Yes, this pack­age re­quires you to use XeLaTeX too.

The idea of ad­mo­ni­tion blocks comes from the ones you can eas­ily do with Asci­iDoc.

We use the pre­vi­ous work of Honza Us­to­hal on fontawe­some.sty to build this pack­age. How­ever, we made two im­por­tant mod­i­fi­ca­tions:

  1. we re­name the in­ter­nal com­mands of fontawesome.sty from \fa to \abIcon and the \FA font switch to \ABFamily to avoid col­li­sion if you want to use both of them;
  2. we re­move most of the pro­vided icons to only kept the one we re­ally use in this pack­age.
