Particle Playground

This is a sandbox for simulating two-dimensional particle physics. It is not intended to be physically accurate to any standard, instead it is best used for interactive entertainment.

View the live example.

To-do

  • Add bin menu
  • Add physics and appearance settings presets
  • Add simulation presets
  • Fix selections
  • Improve Gui binding
  • Simulation pause/play/speed
  • Multiple integrators
  • Pan, zoom, grab(?) tools
  • Color controller UI
  • Vector controller UI
  • Preserve selection/following on merge
  • Inelastic collisions (sticky)
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Store user settings in LocalStorage
  • Look into using Web Workers for collider
  • Look into using Polymer
  • Use Object.observe() for Controller value watching
  • Selection polygons

Build Instructions

All source files are written in ES6 (transpiled with Babel) and Less, then bundled with Webpack.

Clone the repository and run npm install in the project directory to install development dependencies.

Use the command npm run bundle or npm run watch to build all changes or watch and rebuild as changes are made, respectively.

Open index.html in a browser (Chrome is recommended). No development server is necessary, but there is certainly no harm in using one.
