Assets / Hot Reloading of Assets

Support Warning

WebGPU is currently only supported on Chrome starting with version 113, and only on desktop. If they don't work on your configuration, you can check the WebGL2 examples here.

//! Hot reloading allows you to modify assets files to be immediately reloaded while your game is
//! running. This lets you immediately see the results of your changes without restarting the game.
//! This example illustrates hot reloading mesh changes.
//! Note that hot asset reloading requires the [`AssetWatcher`](bevy::asset::io::AssetWatcher) to be enabled
//! for your current platform. For desktop platforms, enable the `file_watcher` cargo feature.

use bevy::prelude::*;

fn main() {
        .add_systems(Startup, setup)

fn setup(mut commands: Commands, asset_server: Res<AssetServer>) {
    // Load our mesh:
    let scene_handle = asset_server.load("models/torus/torus.gltf#Scene0");

    // Any changes to the mesh will be reloaded automatically! Try making a change to torus.gltf.
    // You should see the changes immediately show up in your app.

    // mesh

        scene: scene_handle,
    // light

        transform: Transform::from_xyz(2.0, 2.0, 6.0).looking_at(Vec3::ZERO, Vec3::Y),
