Vector2js

Vector2js

A simple 2D Vectors for JS.

Read the docs

Full docs can be found here.

Install

You can install via npm:

npm install vector2js

Or bower:

bower install vector2js

Or simply download the js files from /dist/ in this repo.

Usage

If you are using nodejs or browserify, you can use Vector2js like this:

// include vector2js
var Vector = require('vector2js');

// create a new vector
var vec = new Vector(10, 10);

If you include the JavaScript from /dist/ directly into your web pages, you will have 'Vector' in global scope and you can create new vectors like this:

// create a new vector
var vec = new Vector(10, 10);

Basic usage example:

Here's a basic usage example - adding two vectors and print the result length:

var v1 = new Vector(5, 10);
var v2 = new Vector(1, 1);
console.log(v1.add(v2).length())

Tests & Browser support

Vector2js is fully testes on Node.js, IE6 & above, Edge, Chrome, FireFox and Opera, and have coverage of 100%.

BrowsersSupport

Test in browsers

To test in browsers just open the file /tests/test.html with your browser of choice.

Test in Node.js

To test in nodejs first install qunit-cli:

npm install qunit-cli

Then you can run the following command from the project root:

qunit-cli tests/test.js

Consts

Vector2js comes with few useful constant vectors you can use:

Vector.zero = new Vector(0, 0); 
Vector.one = new Vector(1, 1); 
Vector.up = new Vector(0, -1); 
Vector.down = new Vector(0, 1); 
Vector.left = new Vector(-1, 0); 
Vector.right = new Vector(1, 0); 
Vector.upLeft = new Vector(-1, -1); 
Vector.downLeft = new Vector(-1, 1); 
Vector.upRight = new Vector(1, -1); 
Vector.downRight = new Vector(1, 1);
