Sketch Export Magic

Sketch Export Magic

You’re right — that *is* a super sweet icon!
These layer names look a little funky — almost like paths…
  • It will automatically overwrite your files by default.
  • If the directory doesn’t exist it will create it for you.
  • If layer name has several / then it will create all of the necessary directories that it needs.
  • It even recognizes ../ as a parent directory and will traverse up! You can even do crazy complex traversing: ../../myFolderTwoFoldersBack.
Look where all of these assets will go on a single export.

How to Export

Yea — I want that icon in all of those places!
“Demo” — I’ll totally remember what that folder name is in 6 months…

Bonus trick

Multiple outputs with different folders.
