Automatic icon and splash screen resizing for any Cordova based applications including PhoneGap. It uses an icon.png and a splash.png to automatically resize and copy it for all the platforms your project supports (currently works with iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8).


 $ npm install lycwed-resources-generator -g


Add icon.png and splash.png 'resources' folder under the root folder of your cordova project and run:

 $ resources-generator

You can change the default folder for the base images using the argument imagespath. Consider the following example:

 $ resources-generator --imagespath="path/to/assets"

This will look for an icon.png and a splash.png in the path/to/assets folder under the root folder of your cordova project.

By default it will generate ios and android icons. You can add manually platforms with platforms. Consider the following example:

 $ resources-generator --platforms="ios android wp8 windows"


Use the Photoshop templates provided in the model folder to generate the PNG files.


Should be a 1024x1024px with a 5% margin.


Your splash must be 2732x2732px as it now is the largest resolution (used by iPad Pro 12.9"), and the artwork should fit a center square (1200x1200px). This Photoshop splash screen template provides the recommended size and guidelines of the artwork’s safe zone.

Platform specific assets

You can provide a platform-specific icon by creating a subfolder with the name of the platform.

  • model
    • icon.png // Default icon used for all platforms if not overriden.
    • splash.png // Default splash used for all platforms if not overriden.
    • android
      • icon.png // Override the default icon for the 'android' platform. So you can use an icon with alpha, as apple doens't allow.



Install on a Mac:

 $ brew install imagemagick

On linux:

$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick

On windows, see Also, on the version 7.0.0+ you will have to check the 'Install legacy utilities' option (which is not enabled by default).

Configuring icons & splascreen for Cordova project

Include in your config.xml file:

<platform name="android">
    <icon density="ldpi" src="resources/android/icon/drawable-ldpi-icon.png" />

With new versions of the Cordova you may want to use the config <preference name="SplashMaintainAspectRatio" value="true" /> to avoid distorted images on android. More info on cordova-plugin-splashscreen.

Configuring splash and icon for PhoneGap project

You can use the same configuration of an cordova project just adjusting the xml elements as their documentation says:

Generate custom assets

You can use this package under node to specify custom assets. I personally use this for adding a custom Icon for Push on android. That needs to be an icon with transparency. I use it with gulp like this:

var splashiconGenerator = require("lycwed-resources-generator");
gulp.task('generate-splashicon', function(done) {
    // Generate all the default assets
    .then(function() {
        // Configure the custom assets with their sizes 
        var options = {
            ICON_FILE: path.join('model', 'pushicon.png'),
            SPLASH_FILE: '', // ignore plash generation
            ICON_PLATFORMS: [{
                name: 'android-push-icon',
                iconsPath: 'res/icons/android/',
                isAdded: true,
                icons: [
                    { name: 'push-icon-36-ldpi.png', size: 36, density: 'ldpi' },
                    { name: 'push-icon-48-mdpi.png', size: 48, density: 'mdpi' },
                    { name: 'push-icon-72-hdpi.png', size: 72, density: 'hdpi' },
                    { name: 'push-icon-96-xhdpi.png', size: 96, density: 'xhdpi' },
                    { name: 'push-icon-144-xxhdpi.png', size: 144, density: 'xxhdpi' },
                    { name: 'push-icon-192-xxxhdpi.png', size: 192, density: 'xxxhdpi' }
        // Generate only the custom assets specified in the `options` parameter
        splashiconGenerator.generate(options).then(function() {

Then just add it to the config.xml:

<!-- pushicon -->
<platform name="android">
    <icon density="ldpi" src="res/icons/android/push-icon-36-ldpi.png" />
    <icon density="mdpi" src="res/icons/android/push-icon-48-mdpi.png" />
    <icon density="hdpi" src="res/icons/android/push-icon-72-hdpi.png" />
    <icon density="xhdpi" src="res/icons/android/push-icon-96-xhdpi.png" />
    <icon density="xxhdpi" src="res/icons/android/push-icon-144-xxhdpi.png" />
    <icon density="xxxhdpi" src="res/icons/android/push-icon-192-xxxhdpi.png" />
