Integrate RobotlegsJS framework with PixiJS.


Get @robotlegsjs/pixi

You can get the latest release and the type definitions using NPM:

npm install @robotlegsjs/pixi --save

Or using Yarn:

yarn add @robotlegsjs/pixi

From version 0.2.0 of this package, the PixiJS dependencies were moved to peerDependencies, allowing the final user to choose the desired version of the pixi.js library on each project.

For pixi.js version 5

The @robotlegsjs/pixi package version ^2.0.0 is compatible with versions >=5.0.0 <6 version range of pixi.js library.

Since version 5.0.0 of pixi.js, the eventemitter3 library was removed and is not necessary anymore.

You can setup your project for version 5 of pixi.js using:

npm install @robotlegsjs/pixi@^2.0.0 pixi.js@^5.0.0 --save


yarn add @robotlegsjs/pixi@^2.0.0 pixi.js@^5.0.0

For pixi.js version 4

For pixi.js >=4.2.1 <5, please use @robotlegsjs/pixi version ^1.

npm install @robotlegsjs/pixi@^1.0.1 --save


yarn add @robotlegsjs/pixi@^1.0.1

Since each version of pixi.js v4 library defines which version of eventemitter3 library is being used, remember to also install the proper version of eventemitter3 in your project.

As example, when you would like to use the version 4.2.1 of pixi.js library, you can run:

npm install pixi.js@4.2.1 eventemitter3@^2.0.0 reflect-metadata --save


yarn add pixi.js@4.2.1 eventemitter3@^2.0.0 reflect-metadata

Setup of your project

Then follow the installation instructions of RobotlegsJS library to complete the setup of your project.
