Run a plugin

Run plugins from the command-line with sketchtool for automated testing of a pluging or as part, a continuous integration workflow and other automated tasks.

Specify the path to the plugin and the command identifier as defined in the plugin manifest.

sketchtool run ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.bohemiancoding.sketch3/Plugins/select-shapes.sketchplugin rectangles

If you don’t specify a command identfier the first command in the bundle will be used. If you don’t want Sketch to become the front-most window use the --without-activating command-line argeument.

Note: This command requires Sketch to be installed with a valid licence as the plugin is run within the Sketch environment.

For a list of all options see command-line help:

sketchtool help run
