Adding more icons to Octoprint

What is the problem?

I would like to add some custom icons to Octoprint. I'm not sure if the system and plugins share the same set of icons but in certain plug-ins (like "UI Customizer") they allow me to choose an icon for something like a control button. I want to add an icons that looks like an enclosure+thermometer, enclosure+fan, etc.

Is there a folder that I can drop new icons in? If so can I access it through Octoprint?

What did you already try to solve it?

I can't see anything special when I take the octoprint SD card out and pop it into my computer.

Have you tried running in safe mode and if so did it solve the issue?

It's not images, it's a font (remember Wingdings on old PCs? This font that displays all sorts of icons and numbers when you change a normal text to it in MS Word?):

The new version uses font awesome 5 (class="fas fa-ICONNAME") - the icon picker for UI customizer is one I made.

Just to chime in here, it's not possible to just 'add' more icons, since they are part of the source, which uses Font Awesome 5 (linked above).

It is possible from a plugin however, to include additional icon sets in the UI, but as @Laze has mentioned, the icon picker works with FA5 icons.

I like your icon picker a little better than the one I was using. Very well done.

Thanks. I have been kinda busy with a bit private projects the last couple of days. Will update my plugin, and couple of other things and then look into the bugs. The icon picker needs a bit more generic handling.
