A collection of custom Atom file-type icons
I have been using Atom as my go-to editor for a little while now and also been developing a few packages, and though I enjoy many of Atom's "hackable" aspects, I've found it can be tedious to look through the files of a large project as different file-types can be difficult to discern. In response, I've created these icons to be tastefully unique to enable users to navigate projects with ease.
I originally made this icon collection for my own use, but after a few others showed interest I thought I might as well share them for anyone looking to customize their files. I'm currently finishing up some more file-type icons, so if you like these, check back soon!
Also, If you'd like to request an icon for a new file-type, make sure to submit your suggestions here, with an "enhancement" label.
I'll do my best to fulfill any submitted icon requests, but also feel free to create/modify/contribute your own using the tools provided here.
For more information, updates, or to contribute to this collection, visit the GitHub Page.
Using these icons on OS X is fairly easy, just repeat the steps used to replace an application icon. Yet, modifying the filetype icons on Windows usually requires third-party tools. Personally, I have had pretty consistent results using Types, though feel free to leave a comment below if you have knowledge of a better resource.
Please don't post issues or help requests on deviantArt. Instead, please use the "Issues" feature on the GitHub page to report any issues or feature requests, to insure that they are seen and addressed.
For any dribbble users, I'm currently a prospect and would be forever grateful for an invitation!
One thing you want to look out for is that you're assigning the new icon to the filetype itself and not the default application used to open that type of file, in which case all of the filetypes associated with that application will change as well.
Though, as I mentioned in the description, I too would love to hear from any other Windows users that have found a solution to this issue.
The program is called Types, and although it's fairly no-frills application it has provided the best results of any I've tried so far.
If you give it a try, definitely let me know how it goes.
