I’m at the point in the COVID-19 lockdown where I spent the weekend migrating from Vim to Emacs1… just for the fun of it. Of course I had to design an app icon as what I could find online just wasn’t cutting it for me.

Emacs Icon

Free to use, download the *.icns here:

Version 1.0 - March 8 2021

How to replace an app icon in macOS Big Sur

  1. Open the Finder
  2. Navigate to your Applications folder
  3. Find Emacs.app and hit CMD + I or right-click and choose “Get info”
  4. Drag the icon you downloaded (it should be in .icns format) to the small icon in the “Get Info” window in the upper-left corner
  1. Ok, so org-mode is actually quite impressive and I’m enjoying the experience so far!
