WordPress’ announcement of the dashboard redesign inspired me to overhaul the way icons are done in SuperCPT (note: this addition will come in version 0.2, but you can use it now by cloning it from GitHub). After doing so, I realized I could easily parse the icon piece out as its own plugin! Enter Post Type Icons.
Post Type Icons is a radically simple plugin that gives you 361 wonderful icons courtesy of Font Awesome. The icons are font-based, so they’re vector in nature and look amazing no matter your screen’s DPI. Now your custom post types can have custom icons that look just like the core icons in every state (previously, it was difficult to get the hover/active state working quite right). This will be in the WordPress Plugin Repository as soon as it’s approved!
