I updated your function to current Fontawesome 5.6 icons

 function FontAwesomeIcon($mime_type)
    {
        // List of official MIME Types: http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/media-types.xhtml
        static $font_awesome_file_icon_classes = [
            // Images
            'image'                                                                     => 'fa-file-image',
            // Audio
            'audio'                                                                     => 'fa-file-audio',
            // Video
            'video'                                                                     => 'fa-file-video',
            // Documents
            'application/pdf'                                                           => 'fa-file-pdf',

Excellent work, thank you. I used your code as inspiration to build a gist to map filenames (using the extension) to Font Awesome classes.
