The Android asset resizer can be used to generate drawable assets from a larger
source image, like an iOS
@2x asset or an
The script will generate the expected
xxhdpi assets from the source image.
If you like this library and it's saved you some time, please consider supporting further development with a Gittip donation!
$ pip install android-asset-resizer
If you'd like to use the pillow imaging library instead of PIL you can install the script with this command:
$ pip install --no-deps android-asset-resizer && pip install pillow
You can easily generate Android assets from your
@2x iOS assets:
$ aaresize email@example.com
Running this command will generate the following assets:
- res - drawable-mdpi - icon.png - drawable-hdpi - icon.png - drawable-xhdpi - icon.png - drawable-xxhdpi - icon.png
These assets were created from the original
@2x asset where the icon in
drawable-xhdpi folder is just a copy of the original.
You can also resize an entire directory of images:
$ aaresize firstname.lastname@example.org
xhdpi asset is roughly equivalent to an
@2x asset, so you
can easily resize those too:
$ aaresize res/drawable-xhdpi/*.png
If you have a large
drawable-xxhdpi asset you can use the
flag to generate the smaller assets:
$ aaresize res/drawable-xxhdpi/*.png --density=xxhdpi
You can also easily add a prefix to your new assets:
$ aaresize email@example.com --prefix=ic_
--ldpi flag to generate low density assets:
$ aaresize res/drawable-xhdpi/*.png --ldpi
--exclude flag to specify a list of files that should not be
$ aaresize res/drawable-xhdpi/*.png --exclude=ic_launcher.png,ic_status.png
You can also import the
AssetResizer class and incorporate it into your
from PIL import Image from android_asset_resizer.resizer import AssetResizer # Create our resizer resizer = AssetResizer(out_dir, source_density='xhdpi', prefix='ic_', image_filter=Image.ANTIALIAS) # Make our resource directories resizer.mkres() # Resize an image resizer.resize(path)
