cpSublimeTextIcon Light

cpSublimeTextIcon Dark


A custom icon for Sublime Text. The design plays off the image of an I-bar (text) cursor, reimagining it as a distorted ‘st’ ligature. It is available in both light and dark flavours, and is optimised for 512, 256, 128, 32 and 16-pixel sizes (including 2x versions for Retina displays).

Original design by Cole Peters. Feel free to fork or make pull requests!


  1. Clone or download this repository's master branch to your computer.
  2. In the /icns directory, locate either the dark or light .icns file.
  3. In a new Finder window, navigate to your /Applications directory, click on Sublime Text, and type ctrl-i (or right-click and choose Get Info).
  4. Drag the .icns file overtop of the Sublime Text icon in the Info panel. You will see the icon change. Close the Info panel.
  5. Right-click on your Sublime Text application and choose Show Package Contents.
  6. Navigate to /Contents/Resources, and copy the .icns file to this directory.
  7. Rename it to Sublime Text 2.icns or Sublime Text.icns, depending on your version of the app.
  8. You're done! Open Sublime Text to see the icon update.


This repository includes the following:

  • Master .sketch file with each icon size on its own artboard (one page for Light, one page for Dark)
  • .icns and .png files for Light and Dark colourways
  • Icon Slate project file (for converting .png files to .icns files

You will need the Sketch beta (v2.3.2 build 5137 or later) to edit the master file. Icon Slate is available for download on the App Store, or you can use another converter of your choice (preferably one that includes options for including 2x assets for Retina displays).

Version notes

2.0: Same concept, new design.

1.2: Reduced the height of the I-bar. Added some extra weight to the 128pt icon to aid with clarity when displayed in the Dock. Darkened the dark icon a bit.

1.1: Converted the tile from a rounded rectangle to a circle — more OSX friendly. Some subtle colour adjustments. Also added an outline to the light 16pt icon to aid visibility within OSX's list view.

1.0.1: Converted the “st” type for 16pt icons to outlines

1.0: First release!
