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

Replace your icon directly
The acceptable formats for your input icon are:
If the later is used, Badgy will find the largest image available in the asset to serve as input.
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
