This package provides a minor mode
dired-icon-mode to display an icon for each file type in dired buffers. Currently MacOS and systems which run GTK 3, such as GNU/Linux, GNU/kFreeBSD and FreeBSD, are fully supported (pre-requisition for GTK systems: PyGObject for Python 3 and optionally the file command). On other systems, currently only directory icons are displayed.
Download this package and add the following to your
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/path/to/dired-icon") (load "dired-icon.el")
To display the icons in a dired buffer, simply call M-x
dired-icon-mode inside a dired buffer. To always display the file icons in dired buffers, add the following to your
(add-hook 'dired-mode-hook 'dired-icon-mode)
The development of dired-icon happens on GitLab.
