Another test for Unified COIL
It starts working at dark HEX 383838, but, or course, separated COIL for light and dark theme will have much nice contrast.
Grey was solved with 50% opacity of main color, so it is lighter on light scheme and darker on dark.
Need for more contrast.

Looks reasonable. I guess we are again entering the dilemma of personal taste. As for example i could say lighter outlines on dark background might look better. BUT i can easily imagine some people could prefer such darker variant on dark backgrounds.

Agreed)
I've decided to make Dark Blue COIL theme as lighter outlines on dark background, so there will be 2 separate blue themes for two backgrounds.
Indeed, this move should bring enough amount of contrast.

Also one fullcolored for light theme (as in first posts) is planned to provide backup coloring option.
Blue COIL contains 5 colors, Fullcolor COIL - 8.

Well, today is a big day.
We released COIL Icon theme files, addon and sources on Github, and started polishing procedure

We faced with problems to organize index.theme and COIL.qrc files because I failed to understand what is needed to be provided there.
As far as I understand, these files contain not a complete library of FreeCAD icons yet.
Also it's time for addon's feedback.
Grammar will be checked later.

Excellent! I guess we could easily make it directly installable via the addon manager (it would basically clone the whole repo under .FreeCAD/Mod). Then we should modify Triplus's theme manager to check for that location too...

Sure. We used Blender mostly for GUI, as I work mostly with Blender python local developers.

There are also several options are possible for indexed color icons palette - for example, it is easy to tweak/replace colors for multiple SVGs with python, as far as it is text values in XML, so "recolor COIL icons.py" can be also written, to change icons palette's colors from FreeCAD GUI, for example.
I definitely like COIL solution's flexibility)
