This is a Crafty component for loading levels created with the Tiled map editor.
This component depends on jQuery to fetch the file.
To load the level, create a component and pass in the url of the map to load:
map = Crafty.e("TiledLevel").tiledLevel(url)
The level load is asynchronous, so you might want to attach a callback on completion:
map.bind("TiledLevelLoaded", callback )
The callback is handed the
TiledLevel component as an argument.
If you want to retrieve a reference to a particular map tile later:
map.getTile(row, column, layer)
If the layer is omitted then layer 0 is assumed.
Tips for using Tiled
Export maps from Tiled in the .json format.
To assign components to an entity within the Tiled editor, create a "Tiled Property" called
components. The value will be a list of the components you want the entity to have on creation. (It's probably easiest to simply assign a single unique component, and include any others through the
.requires() funciton in init.)
