Inspect installed icon themes.
Icon Library is a Python 2 GTK application that makes it easy to:
- view complete icon sets
- search icon sets
- export icon sets to HTML
- check which icon names comply with the freedesktop.org Standard Icon Naming Specification
- compare icons against a range of background colours
Icon Library is available for installation via Python’s package manager pip:
pip2 install --user icon-library
To manually build and install the Python package, perform the following:
- clone the repository (or download the tarball at https://github.com/brbsix/icon-library/archive/master.zip)
git clone 'https://github.com/brbsix/icon-library.git'
- from the repo’s root directory, build the package
python2 setup.py sdist clean
- install the package
pip2 install --user dist/icon-library-0.0.1.tar.gz
To run the application, execute icon-library or click the Icon Library shortcut in your desktop’s application menu.
Note: The Export HTML button exports to icons.html in your home folder.
