Easily visualize icons to find inconsistencies, or check the look of icons in different themes. Some useful features include:

  • Display icon information according to Freedesktop's Icon Theme Specification (size, scale, context, etc.).
  • Display icon file information (location, file size, image size, extension).
  • Compare the same icon across different installed themes.
  • Search all available icons by name.
  • Real time monitoring of an icon develompment folder (useful to catch inconcistencies at development time).

Compilation

Dependencies:

  • gtk+-3.0
