cordova-icon

Automatic icon resizing for Cordova. Create an icon in the root folder of your Cordova project and use cordova-icon to automatically resize and copy it for all the platforms your project supports (currenty works with iOS, Android, Windows 10 and OSX).

Installation

$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick
$ # on Mac: brew install imagemagick
$ # on Windows: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows (check "Legacy tools")

$ sudo npm install cordova-icon -g

If you are using an older version of cordova (before 7.x):

$ sudo npm install cordova-icon@0.13.0 -g

Requirements

Usage

Create an icon.png file in the root folder of your cordova project. You can provide a platform-specific icon by naming it icon-[platform].png (e.g icon-android.png, icon-ios.png). Then run:

 $ cordova-icon

You also can specify manually a location for your config.xml or icon.png:

 $ cordova-icon --config=config.xml --icon=icon.png

If you run a old version of Cordova for iOS / Mac and you need your files in /Resources/icons/, use this option:

 $ cordova-icon --xcode-old

For good results, your file should be:

  • square
  • for Android and iOS, at least 1024*1024px
  • for Windows, at least 1240*1240px

Notes:

  • Your config.ml file will not be updated by the tool (because images are automatically created in the good folders)
  • Therefore, in your config.xml, be sure to remove all lines looking like <icon src="res/android/ldpi.png" density="ldpi" />

Creating a cordova-cli hook

Since the execution of cordova-icon is pretty fast, you can add it as a cordova-cli hook to execute before every build. To create a new hook, go to your cordova project and run:

$ mkdir hooks/after_prepare
$ vi hooks/after_prepare/cordova-icon.sh

Paste the following into the hook script:

#!/bin/bash
cordova-icon

Then give the script +x permission:

$ chmod +x hooks/after_prepare/cordova-icon.sh

That's it. Now every time you cordova build, the icons will be auto generated.
