React Komik!

ReactJS based comic strip creator using fabric.js canvas rendering. It's like spectacle but for comic. You can edit (positioning, scaling, coloring) the comic after rendering. Reactify anything, reactify comic.

react-komik

jscomic

Usage

NPM modules

Just install it from npm

npm install react-komik

You can use the component by require it and bundle it with webpack or browserify. Don't forget to import React, ReactDOM, and use Babel/JSX transformer with ES2015 (recommended)

	import React from 'react';
	import { render } from 'react-dom';
	import { Strip, Panel, Character, Balloon } from 'react-komik';

	let Comic = (props) => (
		<Strip title="Your title here" column="1">
			<Panel>
				<Character
					image="char.png">
					<Balloon 
						text="Reactify Comic!" />
				</Character>
			</Panel>
		</Strip>
	);

	render(<Comic />, document.getElementById('root'));

UMD Browser

Download or include the komik.js file to your HTML. Don't forget to include React, ReactDOM and JSX transformer/Babel. Please use NPM modules instead for production.

	<script src="http://sonnylazuardi.github.io/react-komik/dist/komik.js"></script>
	<script>
		let { Strip, Panel, Character, Balloon } = Komik;

		class Comic extends React.Component {
			render() {
				return (
					<Strip title="Your title here" column="1">
						<Panel>
							<Character
								image="char.png">
								<Balloon 
									text="Reactify Comic!" />
							</Character>
						</Panel>
					</Strip>
				);
			}
		}

		ReactDOM.render(<Comic />, document.getElementById('root'));
	</script>
