Replace Licensed Images With Placeholders: Placeholder-cli

Placeholder-cli is an open-source command-line tool that replaces images with placeholders.

If your project uses images that require a distribution license, you may use this tool to replace them.

The tool generates placeholders on the fly with the exact width and height as the image.

Did I mention those generated placeholders don’t have a watermark:)?

Watch the tool in action:
