InkPaint — canvas graphics rendering library for node.js

NPM Version Package License Code Style PRs Node Version

Overview

InkPaint is a lightweight node.js canvas graphics animation library. It forks from the famous canvas engine pixi.js. You can use it to do server-side image synthesis.

InkPaint has a lot of performance optimization and code refactoring. One of its application Demo is FFCreator https://github.com/tnfe/FFCreator video processing library.

At the same time, inkpaint is a common library between node.js and the browser, and it can still run normally on the browser side.

Current features

  • WebGL renderer (headless-gl)
  • Canvas renderer (node-canvas)
  • Super easy to use API
  • Support for texture atlases
  • Asset loader / sprite sheet loader
  • Support multiple text effects
  • Various Sprite effects and animations
  • Masking and Filters

Basic Usage

npm install inkpaint
const fs = require("fs-extra");
const { Application, Sprite, Ticker, Loader } = require("inkpaint");

const width = 800;
const height = 600;

const app = new Application(width, height);
const loader = new Loader();
loader.add("boy", "./assets/boy.png");
loader.load(loaded);

function loaded(loader, resources) {
  const boy = new Sprite(resources.boy.texture);
  boy.x = width / 2;
  boy.y = height / 2;
  boy.anchor.set(0.5);
  app.stage.addChild(boy);
}

const ticker = new Ticker();
ticker.start();
ticker.add(() => {
  app.render();
  boy.x += 0.1;
});

// save image
const buffer = app.view.toBuffer("image/png");
fs.outputFile("./hello.png", buffer);

Save Image

InkPaint supports saving pictures in multiple formats, you can refer to the api of node-canvas https://github.com/Automattic/node-canvas#canvastobuffer. You can save any animated graphics supported by the browser on the server side.

Installation

Install node-canvas and headless-gl dependencies

If it is a computer with a display device, such as a personal pc computer with windows, Mac OSX system, or a server server with a graphics card or display device, you can skip this step without installing this dependency.

If you are using Centos, Redhat, Fedora system, you can use yum to install.

sudo yum install gcc-c++ cairo-devel pango-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel giflib-devel

InstallXvfb and Mesa

sudo yum install mesa-dri-drivers Xvfb libXi-devel libXinerama-devel libX11-devel

If you are using Debian, ubuntu system, you can use apt to install.

sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev libjpeg-dev libpango1.0-dev libgif-dev build-essential g++
sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev xvfb libxi-dev libx11-dev

Start Up

If it is a computer with a display device, such as a personal pc computer or a server server with a graphics card or display device, start normally npm start

Otherwise, You must use the xvfb-run script command to start the program to use webgl under the Linux server

xvfb-run more detailed command parameters http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/xvfb-run.1.html

xvfb-run -s "-ac -screen 0 1280x1024x24" npm start

How to build

Note that for most users you don't need to build this project. If all you want is to use InkPaint, then just download one of our prebuilt releases. Really the only time you should need to build InkPaint is if you are developing it.

If you don't already have Node.js and NPM, go install them. Then, in the folder where you have cloned the repository, install the build dependencies using npm:

npm install

Compile the node.js package

npm run lib

At the same time, inkpaint is a common library between node.js and the browser, and it can still run normally on the browser side. If you want to view the example on the browser side, please execute

npm run web

To execute the example under node.js, execute

npm run examples
