  4. Generate Icon and Splash Screen

1.Create Resource Folder :

    • Objective: Prepare a dedicated folder to store resources such as icons and splash screen images.
    • Theoretical Explanation: The resource folder, typically named "resources," is created in the root directory of your Capacitor project. This folder will contain images used for generating icons and splash screens.

2.Place Icon and Splash Screen Images:

    • Objective: Add specific images for the app icon and splash screen to the resource folder.
    • Theoretical Explanation:Two images are required - an app icon (1024px x 1024px) and a splash screen image (2732px x 2732px). These images should be in either JPG or PNG format. Placing them in the resource folder makes them accessible for the @capacitor/assets tool.

3. Install @capacitor/assets Plugin:

    • Objective: Install the @capacitor/assets plugin for Capacitor.
    • Theoretical Explanation: Open the command prompt in the project directory and execute the npm (Node Package Manager) install command to add the @capacitor/assets package to your project. This plugin provides functionality to generate icons and splash screens based on the images provided.

4. Generate Icon and Splash Screen:

    • Objective:Use the @capacitor/assets tool to generate the app icon and splash screen.
    • Theoretical Explanation: Run the npx capacitor-assets generate command in the command prompt. This command utilizes the installed @capacitor/assets package to process the images in the resource folder and generate the necessary assets for icons and splash screens based on the specifications outlined by Capacitor.
