MimeIconPlugin

Icon sets for mimetypes

This plugin tries to map known mime types commonly found on the internet to an icon set. There are not many icon sets that have a got coverage of mime types despite looking nicely, yet still coherent, not too exotic so that they can be used with a variety of web designs without too much of a problem.

MimeIconPlugin comes with two complete icon sets, namely oxygen and crystal provided in several sizes.

Usage

MimeIconPlugin implements a single macro %MIMEICON which returns the right icon in the desired size of an icon theme for a given file.

For instance you type:
%MIMEICON{
  "screenshot.png" 
  size="48" 
  theme="oxygen"
}%

will give you:

%MIMEICON{ "screenshot.png" size="48" theme="oxygen" }%

if this plugin is installed.

The idea is that you can pretty much throw any file at it and %MIMEICON will return the right icon for it reflecting the mimetype of this file. Well, obviously there is a fallback to a neutral icon in case some file extension is totally unknown.
