The README shows you how to set up the project. It should be painlessly simple.

I originally intended to develop an intricate suite to upgrade your dev pipeline including hosting, packaging, and plugin portal. However this process is taking longer than I expected. Consider donating and support the project with your input and help make this suite a success for all of us. (LAST UPDATED 11/18/2017)

F L A R E BoomSheets
BoomSheets is a stand-alone tool that imports sprite sheets, maps tiles to sprites, allows user organization, and exports the animSheets in an impact digestible format.

Fork the project and implement any ideas you'll have, I'll review it, and pull your features. At the time being this is a community project for whoever wants to participate. Regardless, I have milestones and features for my own game so the project will be completed by myself.

Progress with the Anims Editor, BoomSheets

/><br />
<br />
One of the issues I want FLARE to address is the tedious task of creating anims from your spritesheets. When I'm making a game, sprites move around and frames are replaced. I needed something that would reduce the time I spent counting tiles in my spritesheets. When your sprites are on row 4 with a 15 col block width, it's not intuitive to keep doing the math to figure out the player's frame starts at 59 and <em>NOT</em> 60- don't forget Impact accepts base-0 array indices!! <br />
<br />
The anims editor loads your sprites, you create labels, and you map the frames to the cell you want with a click of your mouse. The frames are stored and exported in Impact-friendly format so you can call BoomSheets and expect it to figure out the rest.<br />
<br />
<pre class= this.anim = ig.BoomSheets.PLAYER.ELF.IDLE; // returns equivalent statement for: // new ig.Animation( spriteSheet, PLAYER.ELF.IDLE.delay, [0,1,2,3,2,1, .... ] );
There's a bunch of features BoomSheets can expand into. It's not a spritesheet editor, it's an Anims Editor. I can add support for a playback animation, configure complex animation sequences in the future, and add support for multiple spritesheets per session.

For now, BoomSheets is simple: import sprties, create and organize labels, apply frames to labels => export as a native Impact plugin

Edit @ 2:35 PM CST:

I decided the playback animation was a great idea. It's a necessary feature to help developers see the frames they pick. Updated screenshot after adding the tools.

I expect to release the first version within the month of September 2016 as part of the F L A R E suite.

Hey everyone. Got side tracked with other more important things but I have not forgotten about this suite of tools for Impact. Boomsheets is almost ready for beta. There's a few bugs and I'm sure many features that could be added but it's ready to help you map animations to your Impact games. And not just impact but any tiled-based animation system. With options to export the animation sequence for multiple engines (as long as they are tiled e.g. 32x32, 71x89, 16x16, ...)
