So..

Yep! It's a Sketch plugin that will let you insert any website's favicon, and iOS/Android app's icon into your design

The plugin was originally made for use in the Product Design team at Similarweb, (I built it for my team when I was running the design team there) and hopefully some of you out there will also find it useful :)

The plugin uses the Google Favicon API for Favicons, an [import.io API](http://import.io API) for Google Play app icons & App Store icons, and Clearbit API for company logos.

How to use:

  1. Install by downloading (download link), unziping, and then double clicking the "get me a favicon.sketchplugin" file.
  2. In Sketch, Create a 16x16px rectangle for favicons, or a bigger icon (can be up to 512x512 in some cases) for App Store/Google Play icons/Company Logo. Make sure the rectangle is selected.
  3. Use the shortcuts of cmd+ctrl+shift+f for Favicon,cmd+ctrl+shift+l for logo, cmd+ctrl+shift+G for Google Play icons, cmd+ctrl+shift+a for App Store icons. You can also simply choose from the top menu "Plugins --> Fetch that icon for me will you?" and it will do the trick.
  4. Enter any URL for favicons, or app name for Google Play/App Store icons. Voila! Enjoy.

Shout Outs

This plugin is based off of Tobi Kremer's who has built the excellent Company Logo Fetcher for Sketch. Big Thanks to the support of [import.io](http://import.io API) for helping me build the Google Play icon API.
