A simple android assets generator

Project description



android-assset-generator is a command line program for generate ldpi, mdpi, hdpi, xhdpi, xxhdpi and xxxhdpi density images for your Android Studio Project.

What's new on v1.0.6?
  • Now you can use relative paths.



   pip install android-asset-generator


  • Prepare a folder that contains only the images you want to convert to the different densities or may be a single image file.

  • Run the following command.

     android-asset-generator  path   density
Argument Description Valid Values
path Full or relative path string of your asset folder or asset file (png or jpg). Set "this" if your console current workspace is the asset folder. If your path contains spaces, use quotation marks ( " ). Example: "C:\Users\MyUser\Pictures\Camera Roll\pp.jpg" C:\Users\MyUser\Desktop\img or C:\Users\MyUser\Desktop\img\image1.png or src/asset/image1.png
density The source density. If your images are mdpi, set mdpi as argument ldpi, mdpi, hdpi, xhdpi, xxhdpi or xxxhdpi

Note: Preferably do not change the order of the arguments.

  • The generated images will be saved in different folders within the specified path following the Android Studio standard: drawable-ldpi drawable-mdpi drawable-hdpi drawable-xhdpi drawable-xxhdpi drawable-xxxhdpi

  • The source images will be moved to the corresponding folder without having suffered alterations.

  • The last step is to import the generated folders to your Android Studio. project


    android-asset-generator C:\Users\MyUser\Desktop\img xhdpi

The asset folder path is C:\Users\MyUser\Desktop\img and asset density is xhdpi

    android-asset-generator "C:\Users\MyUser\Pictures\Camera Roll\pp.jpg"  xhdpi

The file path contains spaces in between, so quotes are used to make it a single string

    android-asset-generator this

The asset folder path is the console current directory and asset density is hdpi by default

    android-asset-generator img/photo.png

The asset folder path is a relative path starting at the current console working directory.
