Hello, We love how Dagster provide great visualization / map of our data pipelines. Some specific compute_kind are shown as icons and helps quickly understand what type of computation is performed. Will you provide option to set up our own icons?

Hi! How custom are the icons you'd like to use? Because if they're for popular tools, you're welcome to raise a PR with your own! Here's a discussion the describes the code that does it that you can modify. https://github.com/dagster-io/dagster/discussions/14143 Aaand I hope you don't feel like this is my default response since I just linked this five minutes ago in another thread, but you can make a feature request to the UI team about enabling custom icons. https://github.com/dagster-io/dagster/issues/new?template=request_a_feature.yml

Hey @R Lucas, custom icons are something i'd like to support but it's lower priority right now. Are there any specific icons you'd like to see added? I'm happy to add them in an upcoming release 🙂

Hello josh, The icons are quite specific to our use-case (icon per datasource of our raw extractor pipelines i.e. Boomi / Confluent). I'm not sure they would fit in the public or global list of icons (which would then be populated by too many specific icons). That is why I suggested a possibility to add our own custom icons.
