more detail about keywords parameter

Assuming you want to retrieve icons as xcassets-ready files, and icons have defined under Icons / *** already. Then, you need to add icons or Icons (if caseSensitive) to keywords within dtc.config.json . So you can retrieve all icons under that.

*) Spaces in between will be eliminated on generating assets. Then / is treated as a folder on generation.

style

prop name type description
color.isEnabled boolean set true if you want to extract and generate color xcassets.

Templates

All templates use namespace . You can modify templates as you like once you get your own templates folder created automatically after first command execution. You can specify your own template folder by .env file.

slice

  • iconName.imageset
    • universal
    • if extension is png, create multiple scaled images from 1x to 4x as specified by scales .
    • if extension is svg or pdf, it will check Preserve Vector Data .

*) If something wrong, deleting OUTPUT_PATH/extracted folder would fix the issue ( OUTPUT_PATH is defined in .env ).
