What you need to know
- MacThemes is a new program that lets you customize the icons of your Mac.
- Using terminal commands, you can change up the icons to a themse that you find more stylish.
- There is even an app in the works to make the process even easier.
Customizing your Mac icons is now possible. A new program called MacThemes makes it super easy to install themes on your Mac changing up the icons to something that is more of your style.
Here's how it works:
So far there are only three themse available (which you can see above), but more are on the way.
MacThemes also has a native app that will work directly within macOS. Currently, you have to use the terminal commands to change up the themes. The MTInstaller app will arrive in a few days.
The entire project is open-source and is available on GitHub if you wan to check out the source code.
We should note that the program does give a warning that your computer could be put in security risk because it disables the SIP and needs root write access. If you are up to taking that risk, this seems like a great way to change up your Mac.
