In the new version of Sublime Text we can have sidebar icons without any complicated coding. Of course there’s many themes out there that have the icons already built in but that means having more stuff installed and they are usually complicated to customize.

I like to keep things simple and tweak as little as possible, this is not just because everything runs faster, smoother and is more thoroughly tested but because it keeps consistency in the OS and the switch to other workspaces is seamless too. So in Sublime I like to work with the default theme on Dark Monokai, yet some fancy icons on that sidebar come really helpful to see what each file is at a glance. This is how it looks:

The file extensions supported are mostly for Web Development: HTML, CSS, LESS, SASS, JS, JSON, PHP, Twig, Ruby, SQL, XML, Shell script, images, text and binary files. Cool thing about this is that you can add new extensions pretty easily, just look at the existing files.

The icons’ design are from Fugue and I’ve created some new. They are not retina ready although you can do them pretty easily.


Couldn’t be more simple! To install it in Mac OSX, open Sublime and go to Preferences > Browse Packages. A Finder window will open. Now download this Zip file

Sublime Text 3 sidebar icons for Default Theme

Put it in there so the path looks like this:

Macintosh HD ▸ Users ▸ yourusername ▸ Library ▸ Application Support ▸ Sublime Text 3 ▸ Packages ▸ Theme - Default

If you already have a Theme – Default folder then just merge both folders by pressing the Alt key.

In Windows find the Browse packages button to open the packages folder and paste the Theme – Default folder there.
