A bulk loading library for Actionscript.

branch: master
README.mkd

BulkLoader is a minimal library written in Actionscript 3 (AS3) that aims to make loading and managing complex loading requirements easier and faster. BulkLoader takes a more dynamic, less architecture heavy approach. Few imports and making heavy use of AS3's dynamic capabilities, BulkLoader has a one-liner feel that doesn't get in your way.

BulkLoader hides the complexity of loading different data types in AS3 and provides a unified interface for loading, accessing and events notification for different types of content.

This library is licensed under an open source MIT license. Features:

  • Connection pooling.
  • Unified interface for different loading types.
  • Unified progress notification.
  • Events for individual items and as groups.
  • Priority
  • Stop and resuming individually as well as in bulk.
  • Cache management.
  • Statistics about loading (latency, speed, average speed).
  • Various kinds on progress indication: ratio (items loaded / items to load), bytes , and weighted percentage.
  • Configurable number of retries.
  • Configurable logging.
  • Various assets types (XML, NetStreams, Swfs, Images, Sound, Text Files)

Design goals:

  • Minimal imports.
  • Few method to learn.
  • Consistent interface, regardless of content type.

BulkLoader gracefully handles progress notification in these use cases:

  • Few connections to open: bytes total can be used instantly.
  • Many connections opened: progress by ratio
  • Many connections opened for data of widely varying sizes: progress by weight.
