Gmoccapy Icon Theme was created by PeterMue
Hi there,

I've created a icon theme for Gmoccapy using the style and partly the icons from googles material design.

The icon theme follows the freedesktop icon theme specifications and therefore integrates well in the gtk ecosystem.

All icons are so called "symbolic" icons, that means they are monochrome icons that automatically get colored according to the theme colors (e.g. in a dark theme the icon color will be white'ish whereas in a light theme the icons will be black'ish). Beside the main color, there are three more possible colors: "error", "warning" and "success" (color value is spedlcified in the theme).
I used these additional colors to mark special accents in the icons (e.g. "error" usually maps to a red'ish color to highlight something disabled or danger)

To use these icons I extended Gmoccapy to support custom icon themes.
I crated a feature branch at (branched from master-gtk3)

This adds a drop-down to the settings menu to select a custom icon theme.
I've tried to implement this as "minimal invasive" as possible without changing that much code of Gmoccapy and without disrupting the original icons.
(I swap the pixbuf of the Gtk.Image widgets when selecting a theme)

Here some screenshots with the xfce Adwaita Dark and Light theme:

(To be honest, I focused on the dark theme, when using the light theme, the active icon color is white and a bit hard to see but that's how the theme sets the colors)

I'd appreciate any feedback!

If you like to see the feature in Gmoccapy, let me know, I'd love to create a pull request.
