Package asset provides access to application-bundled assets.

On Android, assets are accessed via android.content.res.AssetManager. These files are stored in the assets/ directory of the app. Any raw asset can be accessed by its direct relative name. For example assets/img.png can be opened with Open("img.png").

On iOS an asset is a resource stored in the application bundle. Resources can be loaded using the same relative paths.

For consistency when debugging on a desktop, assets are read from a directory named assets under the current working directory.
