In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to implement various kinds of download buttons with Tailwind CSS and Font Awesome icons (if this is the first time you use Font Awesome, see this article Using Tailwind CSS with Font Awesome Icons: A Deep Dive).


The complete code:

<!doctype html>

    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/6.1.1/css/all.min.css" />
    <script src="https://cdn.tailwindcss.com"></script>

<body class="p-20 space-y-10">
    <!-- a standard download button -->
            class="px-10 py-4 bg-blue-500 rounded-full drop-shadow-lg text-xl text-white duration-300 hover:bg-blue-700">
            <i class="fa-solid fa-download mr-3"></i>

    <!-- link button -->
        <a href="#"
            class="px-6 py-3 bg-rose-500 text-white/80 rounded-lg hover:bg-rose-600 hover:text-white duration-300">
            <i class="fa-solid fa-circle-down mr-2"></i>
            Free Download

    <!-- Link button without background -->
        <a href="#" class="text-blue-500 underline hover:text-rose-500 duration-300">
            Download Document
            <i class="fa-solid fa-file-arrow-down ml-2"></i>

    <!-- Full width button -->
            class="w-full py-4 bg-green-600 duration-500 text-white/80 text-xl font-semibold rounded-full hover:bg-green-700 hover:text-white">
