Crate bevy_asset_loader

Expand description

The goal of this crate is to offer an easy way for bevy games to load all their assets in a loading State.

bevy_asset_loader introduces the derivable trait AssetCollection. Structs with asset handles can be automatically loaded during a configurable loading State. Afterwards they will be inserted as resources containing loaded handles and the plugin will switch to a second configurable State.

fn main() {
        .add_systems(Update, use_asset_handles.run_if(in_state(GameState::Next)))

#[derive(AssetCollection, Resource)]
struct AudioAssets {
    #[asset(path = "audio/background.ogg")]
    background: Handle<AudioSource>,
    #[asset(path = "audio/plop.ogg")]
    plop: Handle<AudioSource>

#[derive(AssetCollection, Resource)]
pub struct ImageAssets {
    #[asset(path = "images/player.png")]
    pub player: Handle<Image>,
    #[asset(path = "images/tree.png")]
    pub tree: Handle<Image>,

// since this function runs in MyState::Next, we know our assets are loaded.
// We can get their handles from the AudioAssets resource.
fn use_asset_handles(mut commands: Commands, audio_assets: Res<AudioAssets>) {
    commands.spawn(AudioBundle {
