A crate for loading data from the aseprite sprite editor. Should go along well with the tiled crate, I hope!
It does not load any actual images, just the metadata. Currently it only loads aseprite's JSON export format, and only when exported in a particular format that has all the options just right. I've yet to find a use case that won't cover though.
Automatically exporting a sprite to a given format is documented
here: https://www.aseprite.org/docs/cli/ The easy way to export in
the right format is to use a command such as
aseprite -b boonga.ase --sheet boonga.png --format json-array --data boonga.json
Otherwise you have to go to
file->export sprite sheet and select
"array" rather than "hash". Every. Single. Time.
This has been tested to work with aseprite 1.1.6; newer or older versions have not been tested.
