Icon packs

Aegis supports icon packs to make it easier to assign icons to the entries in your vault. There are no official icon packs, but the community maintains a number of third-party icon packs you may want to check out. To learn how to create your own Aegis-compatible icon pack, see the documenation.

  • aegis-icons

    Unofficial monochrome-styled 2FA icons.

  • aegis-simple-icons

    This project periodically generates an icon pack for Aegis based on Simple Icons. The icons are automatically generated, so not all of them are as high quality as the ones you'll find in aegis-icons.
