La Capitaine Android
Icon pack for Android using the La Capitaine icons.
This is still in a super early stage and currently only works with Lawnchair
launcher. Support for more launchers should be as simple as adding a few
Naturally I will add icons for the apps I'm personally using first as that's the most straightforward way of making progess - I can directly test it on my device. A few popular Google and messenger apps are already included as well.
Any help is highly appreciated!
- Android Studio
- Python 3.6+
- The following Python modules:
ruamel.yaml(install using pip)
There's no release of this app on the Google Play Store or F-Droid yet, although that might happen in the future.
python3 res.py build which will create the files
xml/drawable.xml as well as rendering all used SVG icons (from
la-capitaine-icon-theme/apps/scalable) to PNG files.
Open the project in Android Studio, compile it and install it on your phone or emulator.
Make sure to select
Launch: Nothing in the run configuration as the app has
no launcher intent filter.
To remove the files created by the build script run
python3 res.py clean.
To add missing icons, you'll need:
- The app package name
- The name of the activity that's missing an icon (usually the main activity)
- An icon from
la-capitaine-icon-theme/apps/scalablethat should be applied
Use a tool like Assist Mapper to obtain these details (this app is for assistant button re-mapping, but it shows package and activity names and highlights the main activity).
A new app entry in
res.yml looks like this:
apps: - package: com.example.app activity: com.example.app.activities.MainActivity icon: example_icon
example_icon doesn't exist yet, add it:
icons: example_icon: example-icon.svg
This way an icon that's being used by multiple apps has only be included once and general icons that don't belong to a specific app can be included as well.
Note that the activity domain doesn't necessarily match the package domain. Please keep the entries sorted alphabetically by package name.
Now, do the steps from the Installation section again. You're done!
Try restarting your launcher application if new icons don't appear immediately.
- Currently, since icon files are rendered and saved per activity, there might be duplicates.
