Loading assets with AKUAssetManager is straightforward. You can load assets by their unique identifier or by specifying additional options.
// Load asset by identifier let asset = assetManager.loadAsset(withIdentifier: "asset-identifier") // Load asset with options let options = AKUAssetLoadingOptions() options.thumbnailSize = CGSize(width: 100, height: 100) let asset = assetManager.loadAsset(withIdentifier: "asset-identifier", options: options)
AKUAssetManager automatically caches loaded assets for optimized performance. In case you want to manually control the cache, you can use the following methods:
// Clear the asset cache assetManager.clearCache() // Preload assets into the cache assetManager.preloadAssets(withIdentifiers: ["asset-1", "asset-2", "asset-3"])
Searching for assets based on certain criteria is made easy with AKUAssetManager. You can search assets by their name, category, or even certain tags assigned to them.
// Search assets by name let results = assetManager.searchAssets(withName: "cat") // Search assets by category let results = assetManager.searchAssets(withCategory: "nature") // Search assets by tags let results = assetManager.searchAssets(withTags: ["landscape", "mountain"])
AKUAssetManager enables you to generate preview thumbnails for assets. You can customize the size and format of the generated thumbnails.
// Generate preview thumbnail let thumbnail = assetManager.generateThumbnail(forAsset: asset, size: CGSize(width: 200, height: 200))
Grouping assets into categories allows for easier organization and retrieval. AKUAssetManager provides methods to manage asset categories.
// Create a new category assetManager.createAssetCategory(withName: "nature") // Add an asset to a category assetManager.addAsset(withIdentifier: "asset-identifier", toCategory: "nature") // Remove an asset from a category assetManager.removeAsset(withIdentifier: "asset-identifier", fromCategory: "nature")
