    Manually loading bitmap fonts and images

    I think what I think because the PIXI docs don't say otherwise (and don't appear to document the individual loaders at all.) I appreciate the help here. Your response should give me enough to go on for some preliminary tests. Thanks.

    Manually loading bitmap fonts and images

    I'm looking at switching away from CreateJS, but I've got one snag I need to resolve before I can feel comfortable making the switch. I build my JS applications using Webpack, and one of the features I take advantage of is asset bundling. Webpack will bundle things like images or text files into JS files that can optionally be asynchronously fetched. Depending on my target platform, I can either release an all-in-one JS file, or I can release a main file with bundles that can be loaded asynchronously when needed (such as when loading the level they're used in). What this means is that my app already has data urls for images and raw text or parsed DOM data for things like XML files. I don't need PIXI to make requests for these, but I do need PIXI to use that data. This leaves me with two questions: CreateJS will let me create Image objects from data urls. Is PIXI able to accept data urls when creating Textures or when making fromImage calls? CreateJS exposes a BitmapFont object. I can pass a png and fnt pair and get back an assembled bitmap font. I don't see an equivalent in PIXI. It looks like the only way to load a font is using PIXIs loader, but that doesn't work for me because my font assets are already in the browser. I don't need PIXI to make an XHR request to fetch the files. I just need it to accept the data I've already loaded and create the font. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.
