    Virtual File System for Crystal language. Embedding your assets into final binary.

    Embedding static files within an Crystal executable is a straightfoward process, using a macro and the read_file macro method. If you are embedding a lot of files, or you want convenience methods for accessing and searching the files that are embedded, a shard like [] or the older and more filesystem-oriented baked-file-system is a lot more convenient than writing all of the file reading boilerplate yourself.
