Icon sets for mimetypes
This plugin tries to map known mime types commonly found on the internet to an icon set.
There are not many icon sets that have a got coverage of mime types despite looking nicely,
yet still coherent, not too exotic so that they can be used with a variety of web designs
without too much of a problem.
MimeIconPlugin comes with two complete icon sets, namely
MimeIconPlugin implements a single macro %MIMEICON
which returns the right icon
in the desired size of an icon theme for a given file.
For instance you type:
will give you:
if this plugin is installed.
The idea is that you can pretty much throw any file at it and
will return the right icon for it
reflecting the mimetype of this file. Well, obviously there is a fallback to a neutral icon in case some
file extension is totally unknown.
You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.
Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".
If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in
, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions
for more help.
