Sidebar: How to use a builtin folder icon?

Hey there,

the api allows to directly let Nova retrieve sidebar icons for known filetypes, like __filetype.png. Since Nova has a directory icon for its own sidebars how is it possible to address that very icon?

So far I have tried combinations like __filetype.dir, or __filetype.folder, but none of those work.

Thank you very much for your help!


I read all about image info from here: Images - Nova
I can’t find how to use folder icons with __filetype . Maybe someone can help us.
Best regards.

Hello all,

The folder icon is not currently supported with __filetype (Or extension-accessible icons) but we should. I’ll mark this as a feature request in our tracker.


It will be great to have this icon in __filetype.dir or

Best regards.
