Samples-pixi

Libraries

Bindings & samples for Pixi.js related libraries including:

Pixi-particles

Pixi-Particles

Pixi-particles's really easy to use and there's a great online editor to configure your particle effects easily

Go to the src/particles folder to have a go. And make changes to the json located under public/img/emitter.json to see what you can do with particles.

Pixi-Sound

We also support Pixi-Sound, the official pixi sound API.

Go to the src/sound folder to see a sample in action.

Animatejs Tweening

Animejs

We support Animejs for all your tweenings!

Go to the src/animejs folder to see a sample in action.

Samples

We've got you covered with 19 straight to the point samples which are either ports from the PixiJS official ones or original ones.

Original samples

How to build and run the samples

  • Restore NPM dependencies: yarn install
  • Restore NuGet dependencies: dotnet restore
  • Move to src folder: cd src
  • Start Fable and Webpack dev server: dotnet fable yarn-start
  • In your browser, open localhost:8080/[EXAMPLE] (e.g. http://localhost:8080/basic) or just select a sample in the list at http://localhost:8080/

Any modification you do to the F# code will be reflected in the web page after saving. If you want to write JS files to disk instead of using the development server, run dotnet fable yarn-build.

How to add a new sample

  • Take one of the existing samples as a reference.
  • Add the information about your sample to public/samples.json5: id, title and description
  • Add one folder named after the id of the sample to src directory and another one to public. The first one will contain the F# (and maybe JS) source files, while the second contains the public assets for the sample (like index.html, images, etc).
  • Add the project to the Fable.Samples.sln solution: dotnet sln add src/mySample/mySample.fsproj. Important: the name of your fsproj file must be the same you use for your folder to allow for automatic build.(folder greatProject -> greatProject.fsproj)
  • Restore NuGet dependencies: dotnet restore

Webpack configuration

Pixi requires to set additional externals to work with webpack. Like this:

  externals: {
    "PIXI": "PIXI",
    "PIXI.extras": "PIXI.extras",
    "PIXI.loaders": "PIXI.loaders",
    "PIXI.settings": "PIXI.settings",
    "PIXI.filters": "PIXI.filters",
    "PIXI.interaction": "PIXI.interaction",
    "PIXI.mesh": "PIXI.mesh",
    "PIXI.particles": "PIXI.particles",
    "PIXI.sound": "PIXI.sound"
  },

Would you stumble on errors like this: Module not found: Error: Can't resolve 'PIXI.xxx' in ..., just add the module to the Webpack config.
