PixiJS is an HTML5 creation engine.
The aim of this project is to provide a fast lightweight 2D library that works across all devices. The PixiJS renderer allows everyone to enjoy the power of hardware acceleration without prior knowledge of WebGL
This is free and open source software.
- Flexible – friendly, feature-rich API lets PixiJS take care of the fundamentals.
- Multi-platform Support – Interactive, visually compelling content on desktop, mobile and beyond, all reached with a single codebase to deliver transferable experiences.
- Tinting & Blending Modes – Photoshop quality blending and colour modes.
- Sprite Sheet Support – caters for a range of sprite sheet formats and includes advanced support for features like trimming and rotational packing.
- Asset Loader – Sprite-sheets, graphics, fonts, animation data (soon to have Adobe Animate support). All incoming assets can be loaded and handled by PixiJS.
- Easy API – Designed to be intuitive and easy to pick up.
- WebGL – Use and create your own WebGL filters and shaders to give your projects next-level visual fidelity and performance.
- Advanced Text Rendering – Beautiful anti-aliased text at native and retina resolutions means that Pixi copy is as easy on the eye as it is on any other delivery method.
- Full Scene Graph – Organise your objects in hierarchical trees, with parent-child relationships.
- Renderer Auto-Detect – Certain, older platforms may not be able to use WebGL. Not a problem with Pixi as Canvas fallback is seamless and automated.
- Deploy into Apps – Use technologies such as Cordova to rapidly deploy your Pixi project as an App. Superb for both concepting and full delivery.
- Accessibility – Pixi is an inclusive technology and all content can be made to be screen reader accessible with ease.
- Multi Touch Interactivity – True multi-touch input and tracking means that you can create interactions such as pinch-to-scale that give audiences native feeling experiences.
