I would like to use moderncv \social commands without using moderncv as a document class. I tried using: \usepackage{moderncv} but then xelatex complains with: ! LaTeX Error: File `moderncv.sty' not found.

I would like to use these icons you can find in this footer: ftp://ftp.ctan.org/pub/tex/macros/latex/contrib/moderncv/examples/template-es.pdf

I'm using the MacTeX-2014 Distribution on my Mac.

By standard these from the marvosym package. See tex.stackexchange.com/q/14/15925 . If you are running xelatex or lualatex they are from the fontawesome package. –  Andrew Swann Jul 7 at 11:43
    
@AndrewSwann : yet, the linkedin, twitter and github symbols are not from marvosym, but designed using tikz in moderncv. –  Clément Jul 7 at 11:56

If you are able to work with Xe- or LuaLaTeX, you may load the fontawesome-package which loads all the symbols used in the new style of moderncv:

% arara: lualatex

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontawesome}

\begin{document}
\noindent
\faPhone{}
\faPhoneSign{}
\faMobilePhone{}
\faTablet{}
\faPrint{}
\faEnvelope{}
\faEnvelopeAlt{}
\faGlobe\\
\faTwitter{}
\faTwitterSign{}
\faFacebook{}
\faFacebookSign{}
\faLinkedin{}
\faLinkedinSign{}
\faGooglePlus{}
\faGooglePlusSign
\end{document}

Even simpler. Thanks. –  Dennis Jul 7 at 11:53

Preamble

1° this solution might not work with Xelatex, try to replace \renewcommand*{\marvosymbol}[1]{{\fontfamily{mvs}\fontencoding{U}\fontseries{m}\fontshape{n}\selectfont\char#1}} by \renewcommand*{\marvosymbol}[1]{{\fontspec{MarVoSym}\char#1}}.

2° A class is definitly not a package


Solution

Those symols are defined in the moderncviconsmarvosym.sty file. Some of those symbols come from a font, some where designed using tikz.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}

\newcommand*{\marvosymbol}[1]{{\fontfamily{mvs}\fontencoding{U}\fontseries{m}\fontshape{n}\selectfont\char#1}}
\definecolor{color2}{rgb}{0.55,0.55,0.55}% Chose your color here.

\newcommand*{\addresssymbol}       {}
\newcommand*{\mobilephonesymbol}   {\marvosymbol{72}~}
\newcommand*{\fixedphonesymbol}    {\marvosymbol{84}~}
\newcommand*{\faxphonesymbol}      {\marvosymbol{117}~}

\linkedinsocialsymbol
\twittersocialsymbol
\githubsocialsymbol

yields : The symbols for mail, twitter, etc.

By playing with the fonts, you can obtain a different outcome.

Awesome thanks! –  Dennis Jul 7 at 11:43
    
You're welcome. I made a quick answer that could get enhanced on several levels to have a uniform colour, to remove that \addresssymbol useless symbol, to show how to use different fonts, etc. I just copy / pasted and adapted a bit the moderncv relevant file. –  Clément Jul 7 at 11:44
