1Password on Mastodon

Feature: Get icon from URL for me

edited October 2022 in Lounge

Currently there's only two ways to get a proper icon for login items:

  • 1Password happen to already have one in their list
  • I have to manually download an image, edit an item, click on the item, "Choose new icon...", find the image and select it.

This is very much a hassle. Most websites these days already have high-res versions of their icons available, either via their favicon, via meta-tags in their HTML, or via a standard manifest-file. And it seems you even actually already load some of them into the app!

  1. When you already load it, why don't you use it?
  2. How about adding an option in addition to "Choose new icon...", for example "Fetch icon from..." and let me pick one of the URL's I've added to the item? It should then be trivial for the 1Password app to go fetch that URL, potentially look for an app manifest, and either way, find a good sized icon from either the HTML directly, or a manifest-file.

Additionally, there should be a "Use default" option, which would use whatever icon 1Password would use by default.

And... in the case that 1Password adds new high-res images to ones I have custom ones for, maybe some sort of notification with the option to remove my custom icon and use your new high-res default instead?

    @ag_mike_d If it's added as an issue in your list, then I'm happy. I just decided to also post it here, as it was easier to provide more details here, screenshots and such.
