  3. Select layers with items you want to populate. You can select group or frames with these layers, no need to select layers dirictly or manualy, the plugin will find them by their names.
  4. Select keys you want to use for population.

🀘 Features

Range seection β€” If you want to select a certain range from a JSON, you can do it like this β€œ1-10”, β€œ1, 5, 20”, or combine them β€œ1-10, 21, 50-340” β€” it means that the plugin will take JSON objects from 1 to 10, 21 and from 50 to 340 and combine them into one new array. Then you can also save filtered array.

Skip marked layers β€” if you want to skip layers, groups or frames β€” exclude them from the list, then you can use the β€œSkip marked layers” option. Just select layers and press β€œSkip selected”. You can also clean marked layers or add the marker manually.

Random order β€” If you switch it on all items will be filled in a random order. By default, all your layers will be filled in order.

Image URLs recognition β€” The plugin will automaticly recognise values from a JSON that end with .JPG, .PNG, .GIF or .WEBP as images. if you name a shape or a frame with the name of the key β€” the pllugin wil fetch the image by URL and add it as a fill.

Manual population β€” The plugin populates layers automatically by their names. But you can populate layers manually, despite their names. Select a key in the plugin and then select layers you want to populate. Acceptable for images also.

βœ… Valid JSON structure

The JSON structure for the file should look like an array of objects.

        "id": 1,
        "name": "Revan ID",
