File Icons for GitHub and GitLab

CRX id


Description from extension meta

A simple browser tool changes file's icon on GitHub, GitLab, gitea and gogs.

Image from store File Icons for GitHub and GitLab
Description from store On GitHub, no matter what kind of file is, their icons are all same. However, in your fancy editor, there are some packages which give every filetype an unique icon. Therefore, I build a simple extension to replace original file icon with filetype-specific icons. This improves visual recognition on GitHub, GitLab, etc. Hope you like it! **This extension is not a project of GitHub or any company**

  • (2020-11-05) Vince Aggrippino: I love having the file icons there. There's a "Toggle dark mode" option, but the regular icons look better on the dark mode extension I'm using (Dark Reader).

    Icons aren't changed after installing. Console shows this `Refused to execute inline event handler because it violates the following Content Security Policy directive: "script-src assets-cdn.github.com". Either the 'unsafe-inline' keyword, a hash ('sha256-...'), or a nonce ('nonce-...') is required to enable inline execution.`
