file import

Demonstration for the file import library that I have made. This library supports raster image files, SVG files, and audio files. It also supports text and binary files but every file is technically a binary file so support for binary is kind of implied.

If you want to get the library, see inside this project and click on File > Export Blocks.

The blocks also include help notes.

MINOR UPDATE 2/19/2021:
- I changed the code of the read file block a bit. Reading a file in JavaScript is an asynchronous operation so to make it synchronous for Snap!, I made it use Snap! variables with JavaScript, and pausing the process. I redid it so it still pauses the process, but now the JavaScript function returns a JavaScript function returning the new value which the Snap! code will read once the process is once again resumed. That was lengthy.
