Do you want to use it on your website?

This library is available on the two most popular CDNs and it's easy and ready to use, if you were using particles.js it's even easier.

You'll find the instructions below, with all the links you need, and don't be scared by TypeScript, it's just the source language.

The output files are just JavaScript. 🤩

CDNs and npm have all the sources you need in Javascript, a bundle browser ready (tsparticles.min.js) and all files splitted for import syntax.

If you are still interested some lines below there are some instructions for migrating from the old particles.js library.

I've created a tsParticles collection on CodePen 😮 or you can checkout my profile

Otherwise there's the demo page link below. Just click/tap the Coronavirus below, don't be scared. It's safe 😷.

tsParticles demo

Want to see ever more demos? Clone the repository on your computer and follow these instructions

npm install && npm start

Boom! 💥 http://localhost:3000 and you can checkout other demos.

If you are brave enough you can switch to the dev branch for trying the features under development.

Dependencies

You may have notices the * near dependency free. Well almost all features works without any dependency, but... Well there's a little but. The Polygon Mask feature requires [pathseg](https://github.com/progers/pathseg) for some browsers to work fine, and obviously the Icon Fonts (like FontAwesome) must be included in your page.


Migrating from Particles.js

tsParticles library is fully compatible with the particles.js configuration.

Seriously, you just need to change the script source et-voilà, you're ready 🧙!

Usage

Load tsParticles and configure the particles:

tsParticles demo

index.html

<div id="tsparticles"></div>

<script src="tsparticles.min.js"></script>

app.js

// @path-json can be an object or an array, the first will be loaded directly, the object from the array will be random selected
/* tsParticles.loadJSON(@dom-id, @path-json, @callback (optional)); */
tsParticles
  .loadJSON("tsparticles", "presets/default.json")
  .then((container) => {
    console.log("callback - tsparticles config loaded");
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    console.error(error);
  });

//or

/* tsParticles.load(@dom-id, @options); */
tsParticles.load("tsparticles", {
  /* options here */
});

//or

/* tsParticles.loadFromArray(@dom-id, @options, @index (optional)); */
tsParticles.loadFromArray("tsparticles", [
  {
    /* options here */
  },
  {
    /* other options here */
  },
]); //random object
tsParticles.loadFromArray(
  "tsparticles",
  [
    {
      /* options here */
    },
    {
      /* other options here */
    },
  ],
  1
); //the second one
// Important! If the index is not in range 0...array.length, the index will be ignored.

// after initialization this can be used.

/* tsParticles.setOnClickHandler(@callback); */
/* this will be fired from all particles loaded */
tsParticles.setOnClickHandler((e) => {
  /* custom on click handler */
});

// now you can control the animations too, it's possible to pause and resume the animations
// these methods don't change the config so you're safe with all your configurations
// domItem(0) returns the first tsParticles instance loaded in the dom
const particles = tsParticles.domItem(0);
// play will start the animations, if the move is not enabled it won't enable it, it just updates the frame
particles.play();
// pause will stop the animations
particles.pause();

Import and require

Starting from version 1.12.7 import and require can be used to import tsParticles.

Now you can write something like this

const tsParticles = require("tsparticles");

// or

import { tsParticles } from "tsparticles";

React.js

tsParticles ❤️ react-particles-js

Starting from react-particles-js version 3.0.0 it has added tsParticles as a dependency.

You can follow the instructions here to install react-particles-js and use all the configurations described in this readme to configure the particles.
