You may have noticed that plugin steps now have pretty icons. As we see below, these show up in full color in the palate and as white images on top of the purple plugin steps in the process flow.
At the same time the plugin definition format (the plugin.xml file) doesn’t have a way to point at images to use as icons. How does this work? Basically, this is done by convention, but looking at the name of the plugin step and assigning an icon based on the name (usually the first word of the step name).
The table below shows the key words and the icon that is shown. So if you’re creating a plugin, tweak the names of your steps to match the plugins.
