Cascading texture/sounds artwork pack loader
var createArtpacks = require('artpacks'); var artpacks = createArtpacks([url1, url2, url3, ...]); blob = artpacks.getTexture('name'); blob = artpacks.getTexture('category/name'); blob = artpacks.getTexture('namespace:category/name'); blob = artpacks.getTexture('namespace:name'); blob = artpacks.getSound('name');
The given URLs are loaded using binary XHR. A
loadedAll event is emitted in case
you want to do something after all of the packs are loaded.
getSound both return
Blob objects per the W3C File API.
You can use
URL.createObjectURL(blob) in the browser to get a
blob: URL usable for
audio src, etc.
Texture and sound names are accepted with or without a "namespace" prefix; if omitted, any namespace is accepted. The loaded packs are searched until a match is found (cascading similar to Cascading Style Sheets), so you can load multiple packs and they will be logically combined together.
Supported artpack formats
ResourcePack: a hierarchical zip archive format supporting textures, sounds, and other resources, developed by Mojang for Minecraft 1.6+. Many resource packs developed for Minecraft therefore should be compatible with this module. If you're looking for a free artwork pack for voxel-related games, check out ProgrammerArt, specifically the ResourcePack distribution.
