Question about atom's sidebar UI


Hi I noticed in a lot of images of atom that in the sidebar under the top level folder it show’s a book with a book mark then underneath it all the folders and files, although I have never had that in my atom and was wondering what that was? I use project manager and have tried a couple different themes.

You can see in the plicture below the icon next to nuance-dark-ui, was wondering why all the screenshots I see have that but I never do. Thanks


The book icon is an indicator that the root folder is a Git repository. If your root folder is not a Git repository, it just looks like a regular folder:


Ok Thanks!
