I stumble upon an excellent icon alternative made by Bernard Kowalski to the boring standard PhpStorm icon. You can download it here 😉

Here are the steps to replace your PhpStorm icon so it shows within the application itself:

  1. Right-click on PhpStorm.app and Show Package Contents
  2. Navigate to Contents/Resources/
  3. Replace webide.icns with custom icon (making sure the name is exactly the same)

  1. Duuuuuude!! This is perfect. I hadn’t had php storm install but an hour when I started looking for an alternative icon and yours is perfect.

    That burning sensation in my eyes has cleared up, thanks to you.
