Open Sprite Library
Posted 09 November 2013 - 06:36 PM
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.
My idea is to have a one stop calc sprite database. The homepage would have a searchbar, and popular sprites below it. The search bar would be a live search, so that as you type the sprites are filtered.
When you click on a sprite, it takes you to a page with the sprites description, other sprites by the same author, and all the supported formats for the sprite, ready to copy/paste into your code.
This makes it easy both for artists and programmers. The programmers simply search for what they need, and the copy/paste the code. Artists only need to upload an image, and it is automatically converted to the various sprite formats.
I may also make a sprite requests section.
Please post any feedback, and I may be asking for volunteers to help me with this in the future, so if you would like to join the programming team let me know.

- Comment system
- Custom search engine
- Most of the front-end
- Adding more sprite formats than luazm and Prizm C 16 Bit
If you want to try out the site, that's fine, just be aware that it is currently in an alpha state, and the database may be reset at any time.

View uploaded sprites: http://osl.cemetech.....php?id=<sprite id> (try 1 and 2, when more sprites are uploaded, try others. It does not fail very gracefully though.)
