Atom’s current icon isn’t very pretty. I think that atom could benefit from having a better one. Here’s an example of an open source replacement icon for atom that looks much better.
I like that one a lot too!
In the same kind => http://dribbble.com/shots/1446941-Atom-Icon?list=show&tag=atom_icon
It would be great if there will be a way to set the icon by installing a package.
Just changed icons. Looks way nicer in the dock!
I agree! I love everything about atom expect for the ugly Icon…hopefully we get something better for the final release.
Any of these would be worlds better than the current disaster. +1.
Can we vote on this? I like the icon pre 0.93 better than the current one. Or at least, switch to the one previously shown.
If you like it you can change it yourself
I’m really sad they replaced the original icon with this. The green glossy sphere looks dated and generic (a throwback to the days of Aqua). In fact it’s extremely similar to the old Flip for Mac icon, which is at least 5 years old and which I always disliked.
The previous one had personality and felt like it fitted better with the product. The new one will look even more dated when OS X gets a visual makeover akin to iOS 7 and will probably need replacing again.
And yes, it is possible to change it yourself, but that means doing it each time the app is updated.
A SVG icon would be preferable for Linux.
I took my time to create a new icon, it follows the color scheme of the website aswell. Do with it as you please!

I like Numix’s implementation for their icon pack:
@lessthanthree is very nice too. a good mix of their branding and the existing icon(which does match their current brand style). Why no svg?
