Core Free texture packer module

Install

$ npm install free-tex-packer-core

Basic usage

let texturePacker = require("free-tex-packer-core");

let images = [];

images.push({path: "img1.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img1.png")});
images.push({path: "img2.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img2.png")});
images.push({path: "img3.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img3.png")});

texturePacker(images, null, (files) => {
    for(let item of files) {
        console.log(item.name, item.buffer);
    }
});

Advanced usage

Use packer options object

let texturePacker = require("free-tex-packer-core");

let options = {
    textureName: "my-texture",
    width: 1024,
    height: 1024,
    fixedSize: false,
    padding: 2,
    allowRotation: true,
    detectIdentical: true,
    allowTrim: true,
    exporter: "Pixi",
    removeFileExtension: true,
    prependFolderName: true
};

let images = [];

images.push({path: "img1.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img1.png")});
images.push({path: "img2.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img2.png")});
images.push({path: "img3.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img3.png")});

texturePacker(images, options, (files) => {
    for(let item of files) {
        console.log(item.name, item.buffer);
    }
});

Available options

  • textureName - name of output files. Default: pack-result

  • height - max single texture height. Default: 2048
  • fixedSize - fix texture size. Default: false
  • padding - spaces in pixels around images. Default: 0
  • allowRotation - allow image rotation. Default: true
  • detectIdentical - allow detect identical images. Default: true
  • allowTrim - allow trim images. Default: true
  • trimMode - trim or crop. Default: trim
  • removeFileExtension - remove file extensions from frame names. Default: false
  • prependFolderName - prepend folder name to frame names. Default: true
  • textureFormat - output file format (png or jpg). Default: png
  • base64Export - export texure as base64 string to atlas meta tag. Default: false
  • scale - scale size and positions in atlas. Default: 1
  • tinify - tinify texture using TinyPNG. Default: false
  • tinifyKey - TinyPNG key. Default: ""
  • packerMethod - name of pack method (BestShortSideFit, BestLongSideFit, BestAreaFit, BottomLeftRule or ContactPointRule). Default: BestShortSideFit
  • exporter - name of predefined exporter (JsonHash, JsonArray, Css, OldCss, Pixi, PhaserHash, PhaserArray, XML, Starling, Cocos2d, Spine, Unreal, UIKit), or custom exporter (see below). Default: JsonHash
  • filter - name of bitmap filter (grayscale, mask or none). Default: none

Custom exporter

Exporter property can be object. Fields:

  • fileExt - files extension

Free texture packer uses mustache template engine.

prop type description
name String sprite name
frame Object frame info (x, y, w, h, hw, hh)
rotated Boolean sprite rotation flag
trimmed Boolean sprite trimmed flag
spriteSourceSize Object sprite source size (x, y, w, h)
sourceSize Object original size (w, h)
first Boolean first element in array flag
last Boolean last element in array flag

config (Object) current export config

prop type description
imageWidth Number texture width
imageHeight Number texture height
scale Number texture scale
format String texture format
imageName String texture name
base64Export Boolean base64 export flag
base64Prefix String prefix for base64 string
imageData String base64 image data

appInfo (Object) application info

prop type description
displayName String App name
version String App version
url String App url

Template example:

{
  "frames": {
    {{#rects}}
    "{{{name}}}": {
      "frame": {
        "x": {{frame.x}},
        "y": {{frame.y}},
        "w": {{frame.w}},
        "h": {{frame.h}}
      },
      "rotated": {{rotated}},
      "trimmed": {{trimmed}},
      "spriteSourceSize": {
        "x": {{spriteSourceSize.x}},
        "y": {{spriteSourceSize.y}},
        "w": {{spriteSourceSize.w}},
        "h": {{spriteSourceSize.h}}
      },
      "sourceSize": {
        "w": {{sourceSize.w}},
        "h": {{sourceSize.h}}
      },
      "pivot": {
        "x": 0.5,
        "y": 0.5
      }
    }{{^last}},{{/last}}
    {{/rects}}
  },
  "meta": {
    "app": "{{{appInfo.url}}}",
    "version": "{{appInfo.version}}",
    "image": "{{config.imageName}}",
    "format": "{{config.format}}",
    "size": {
      "w": {{config.imageWidth}},
      "h": {{config.imageHeight}}
    },
    "scale": {{config.scale}}
  }
}

Custom template usage example

let texturePacker = require("free-tex-packer-core");

let images = [];

images.push({path: "img1.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img1.png")});
images.push({path: "img2.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img2.png")});
images.push({path: "img3.png", contents: fs.readFileSync("./img3.png")});

let exporter = {
    fileExt: "json",
    template: "./MyTemplate.mst"
};

texturePacker(images, {exporter: exporter}, (files) => {
    for(let item of files) {
        console.log(item.name, item.buffer);
    }
});
