Description Paul Kepinski 2022-12-13 20:29:18 UTC
I saw that LO added support for dark theme icon packs (very very nice feature btw).

I maintain the Yaru LO icons repository and I'd like to take this in account.
But I have 10 colour variants, which is already quite big, and add dark variant for all of them mean have 20 variants.
But this is mainly mean that a lot of icon will be duplicated 20 times, and I really don't want this.

Currently, all the Yaru variants ZIPs weigh about 60Mo, add dark variant would increase this to 120Mo (I can't do this honestly 😅). With an extending system, it could be really much less heavy than 60Mo.

Add this feature would require to create a kind of metadata file for each icon pack.
LO currently use Colibre icons as fallback when an icon is missing. Have the same behaviour, but configurable would be amazing!

Thanks in advance 🙂

Thanks Paul

I think your report might already be covered by bugs 148764 and 124966, wouldn't you agree?
