Any icon set with ‘colora’ or ‘flexible’ can be changed with scripts.

On July 2017 we give you these ‘mixing’ Sardi icons

In this article we will NOT run any scripts. That would be the flexibility of Sardi.

In this article we are using the MODULARITY.

For example we have the Sardi Mono Vertexed and we would like to have a Sardi Vertexed. In this case all you need to do is change the inherits line not to take the Sardi-Mono icons but take the Sardi icons. We take module ‘Vertexed’ and hang it behind the module ‘Sardi’. 5 seconds work. That is why Sardi is so modular.

This example is explained in this article.

There are many more articles that illustrate the modularity of the sardi icons here.



Arch Linux based distro’s like ArchLabs can use packer to install these. All other distro’s have to download the zip file from github. Unpack it and put it in the hidden folder in ~/.icons in their home folder or make the folder if it does not exist yet. Select with your theme manager.
