Open Sprite Library
« on: October 28, 2013, 12:27:45 pm »
I have been thinking about doing this for a while, and I wanted to get some feedback before I invest a lot of time and effort into it.

I was thinking that it would be cool to have a web tool that would allow artists to upload sprites in png form with a name and possibly tags, and then the server-side software would convert it to SourceCode-style sprites, and upload it to the server. Programmers could then search the site for sprites that they need, and have the sprite data ready to copy and paste into their programs.

What do you think?

well, first of all, that domain name looks like its for sale, and secondly, I don't think it would give you sprite data to copy/paste into a program, would it?

Oh, ok :)

EDIT:

I thought that maybe it would be nice to have a calc centered version of that, but let me know if it would be worth the effort, that's why I made this thread ;)

I think I will make a poll. If more are for than against, I'll do it. ;)

poll added :)

No, but it may not be worth the effort since Open Game Art would do everything this would except having copy/paste sprite data.

But I bet it would still be fun to program it, even though it already exists :)

PixelScape Does some of that, so maybe you could propose something like this to Deep Thought who I believe worked on Omnimaga's new image uploader, too. Maybe he could allow users to upload images that included tags to the repository, then have PixelScape be able to search the repository (as well as anybody on Omnimaga looking for images in the uploader), then the user could click the one they want and options for copy/pasting it to the editor, or directly reading it in some format for source code.

We could also make a site that takes sprites from OGA and convert them to code. Combine it to a userscript and you're all set. :D

YOu and your usercripts infected me! Hurrah for userscripts!

But OGA don't have standards, many files are zipped, some sprites aren't ngrid aligned and so on...
