What would you like to do?
Search the current directory for unused images. Useful for finding leftover assets from files which exist in Xcode project or in your repository.
# This simple python utility crawls the current directory and finds all images.
# It will then search the directory for files using these images and also mark
# any xcode projects which include these images.
# Allowing you to easily find images which are no longer used (or even images
# included in xcode and not used).
# Usage, cd into your repository and then run:
# curl -# | python -
# Example output:
# ==> PLVSendButton-background-normal wasn't found.
# ==> PLVSendButton-background-selected wasn't found (in project).
# Please note, there may be false positives with image names which are generated
# in code. For example with a PNG sequence:
# - image-sequence-1.png
# - image-sequence-2.png
# - image-sequence-1.png
# When these are used with something like `[NSString stringWithFormat:@"image-sequence-%d.png"]`.
