Qlik Sense sheet icons made easy

If you develop Qlik Sense applications you’ve been there: Manually creating screen shots and then manually uploading them to a content library, and finally manually assigning them as sheet icons.

Fun? Not really. But it makes the lives of our end users easier, so we do it.

I’ve had this idea for years, but only got around to work on it recently.
Better late then never, the Butler family of open source tools for Qlik Sense has a new member:

Butler Sheet Icons

https://github.com/ptarmiganlabs/butler-sheet-icons

It’s an open source tool that will take screen shots of all sheets in a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows app, upload the images to a content library and finally set the sheet icons of each sheet. Automatically.

The tool is cross platform (Windows, MacOS, Linux, Docker).
A single command will update all sheets in an app. Add a few lines of PowerShell script and you can automatically update all sheets in all apps…
Or run it as a Docker container as part of your CI/CD workflow.
Or manually when you have made UI changes to your Sense app.

Feel free to try it out, feedback, report bugs or contribute with new features!
