This repository contains a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CC's Generator extensibility layer. This plug-in makes it easier for users to export image assets from their Photoshop files. Users simply enable image asset generation for a document and name layers (or layer groups, or smart objects) they want exported using a filename-like syntax. Generator then watches these layers, and any time they change, automatically updates the corresponding assets on disk.
To learn more about Generator and creating your own Generator plug-ins, please visit the Generator Core repo.
The Functional Spec provides basic information about how to use the Image Assets plug-in. Another good source of information is Samartha Vashishtha's blog post A closer look at the Photoshop Generator syntax.
For the brave, this plug-in supports a number of experimental configuration options. They're documented here: https://github.com/adobe-photoshop/generator-assets/wiki/Configuration-Options
For details on how to create a configuration file, please see the documentation here: https://github.com/adobe-photoshop/generator-core/wiki/Generator-Configuration-File-Format
