Installation

  1. Download and open Export-More-master.zip
  2. Locate and double-click Export-More.sketchplugin
  3. Locate the GIFX file in the bundle and double-click ( only if plugin fails after install )

Animated GIF

Create your content on a sequence of artboards using a XXX 01, XXX 02, XXX 03 naming convention, where "XXX" is the artboard name. Each artboard acts as an animation keyframe and will play sequentially according to the naming structure. When ready, navigate to Plugins ▸ Export More ▸ Artboards to GIF and select a playback method and frame animation rate ( see options below ). The file will export to the directory of your choosing.

Playback Options
Default: play animation once
Loop: play animation forever

Frame Rate Options
No Delay
100ms, 200ms, 300ms, 400ms, 500ms, 600ms, 700ms, 800ms, 900ms
1000ms, 1500ms, 2000ms, 3000ms, 4000ms, 5000ms

Usage Notes
If you notice issues with transparency and / or antialiasing, try adding a solid background color to the artboard. You can prevent individual artboards from exporting by appending Lock to the name, or selecting only the artboards you need. Frame rate options can be modified by editing the plugin files.

ICNS: Automatically

Create your icon on a single 1024x1024 sized artboard. When ready, navigate to Plugins ▸ Export More ▸ Artboards to ICNS and select Automatically from the dropdown menu. The file will export to the directory of your choosing.

Sizes Generated
16x16, 32x32, 128x128, 256x256, 512x512
16x16@2x, 32x32@2x, 128x128@2x, 256x256@2x, 512x512@2x

Usage Notes
The auto generator will scale-up artboards smaller than 1024x1024 to fulfill the maximum icon size of 512x512@2x. Be sure to use 1024x1024 for the artboard size, otherwise the hi-res icons will appear blurry. If multiple artboards exist, and none are selected, the first artboard in the layer list will export.

ICNS: From Sequence

Create your icon using the Mac App Icon template from File ▸ New From Template ▸ Mac App Icon in the application menu bar. When ready, navigate to Plugins ▸ Export More ▸ Artboards to ICNS and select From Sequence in the dropdown menu. The file will export to the directory of your choosing.

Usage Notes
The artboard naming structure, for example: icon_32x32 and icon_32x32@2x, must remain intact for the generator to work properly. You can prevent individual artboards from exporting by appending Lock to the name.
