Badgy is a command line tool that creates variants of your icon by adding badge overlays.

Features

  • ✅ Small (square) and long (rectangular) labels
  • ✅ Position it on
    top, left, bottom, right, topLeft, topRight, bottomLeft, bottomRight, center
  • ✅ Supports rotation (long badge only)
  • ✅ Converts your icon to different sizes already
  • ✅ 🚀 Ability to automatically replace your
    .appiconasset
    , mainting the same name and sizes

Disclaimer

This tool is NOT meant to create production ready icons. As I see myself constantly using at least 4 variants of the same application for B2B customers (think of 1 environment for DEV, QA, UAT, PROD and more), I quickly created this tool to differentiate the application icon for those variants.

There are many things that might not work as you expect, and there are many others that you wish this could do. Feel free to contribute to the project and make it better.

Choose your colors

You can change the badge color and the tint/text color with

-c, --color
and
-t, -tint-color
. If not specified, as in the examples above, the badge color is randomly selected while the tint color is always white.

Example

badgy long TEST ~/MyIcon.png --angle 15 --position bottom --color '#FFD700' --tint-color '#8B7500'

If a human readable color format is your dub, then check out a full list of supported named colors.

Replace your icon directly

The acceptable formats for your input icon are:

.png
,
.jpg
and
.appiconasset
. If the later is used, Badgy will find the largest image available in the asset to serve as input.

--replace

Replace is a flag that you can use alongside your

.appiconasset
input, it will iterate over all images available in the asset and convert the largest icon to the respective size, this allows Badgy to maintain the same amount of files, same names and same sizes.

✅ Perfect for any icon set -> iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, macOS

badgy long TEST MyProjectSource/Assets.xcassets/AppIcon.appiconasset --angle 15 --position bottom --replace
