Aseprite File Header and Data Layout

Hi all!

I’m doing a project for school and was thinking about making a loader for .aseprite files.

Is there a way I can see the contents of a .aseprite file as just simple text? Or are there guides/documents explaining how .aseprite files are layed-out (including the file header, row-padding for the pixel data, formats of code etc.)?

Need this information so I can write my loader for this file type.

.aseprite files are binary, so you can’t see them as simple text, though you can examine their structure if you view them in a hex viewer.

Their structure is documented in detail here:
