Particle Editor

Particle editor based on the Thor library extension to SFML.

Features

The editor covers most of the features provided by the particle module from Thor. There is also support for:

  • Save particle data to a json file
  • Open an existing json file with particle data
  • Change particle texture with file browsing

How-to

Setting up:

  • Build the provided Visual Studio 2017 solution (sln) as x86 (Debug)
  • Copy the contents of the dll folder to your Debug folder
  • Run the program

How-to integrate

  • Add json to your project include settings
  • Add ParticleLoader.hpp and ParticleLoader.cpp to your project

Example code

#include <SFML/Graphics/RenderWindow.hpp>
#include <SFML/Window/Event.hpp>
#include <SFML/System/Clock.hpp>
#include "ParticleLoader.hpp"

int main()
{
    sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode(800, 600), "Particles");
    px::ParticleLoader system("src/res/data/example.json", sf::Vector2f(400.f, 400.f));
    sf::Clock clock;

    while (window.isOpen())
    {
        sf::Event event;
        while (window.pollEvent(event))
        {
            if (event.type == sf::Event::Closed)
                window.close();
        }
		
        system.update(clock.restart());
        window.clear();
        window.draw(system);
        window.display();
    }

    return 0;
}

Remarks

  • The size of a particle is uniform and thus ranges from a particle size to another
  • Trying to manipulate a range input field with invalid input will cause the range to reset
