I am using some of the best plugins in the world and many of them are using some sort of Icon packs. Each plugin does this for themself and this causes a large explosion in size of my vault(s) due to repetition of the same icon in multiple locations. Some, but not all are:
- Obisidan Icons
- Obsidian Icon Shortcodes
- Obsidian Icon Folder
- Obsidian Admonitions
Would it be possible that plugin developers agree on a single icon pack folder anduse these into a special directory under the
.obsidian folder. That way we can reduce the size of our vaults and reuse icons among the plugins.
Additionally, I would ask that a official format be described by the Obsidian team so that there are not duplicates within the folder. For example, that the Icon Packs be in directories with a specific naming convention (fontawsome-line, rpgawesome, etc.)
Option 1 (no global icon-pack folder):
./Notes ├── Vault A └── .obsidian └── icons ├── font-awesome-brands ├── font-awesome-regular ├── font-awesome-solid ├── rpgawesome └── remix-icons
I have no current workaround.
Please see Core FR on an overarching FR for all.
