Rails and Lighttpd Icons for Leopard

Way back in February 2006 I put together a pair of Mac folder icons for Rails developers consisting of one to use for Rails projects and another for the Lighttpd server folder. Due to the recent release of Leopard which completely changed the standard folder design used throughout the system (for better or worse depending on your point of view on the obvious accessibility problems this introduced), I’ve revised the icons so they’ll blend in more naturally with their new surroundings.

The new icon set includes the whole range of sizes from 16px all the way up to the giant 512px icon size. As is the case with any downloads I make available here, please do not redistribute the icons or attempt to pass them off as your own.

So say you…

The icons are great! But how would you assign these icons to Rails projects? Is there an automated method to assign the icon to directories which contain rails related files?

There’s no automated way that I’m aware of though I expect some clever person could write a rake task that could do the job. For now though it’s all copy/paste all the time.
