Do you want to use it on your website?

Documentation and Development references here 📖

This library is available on two of the 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.engine.min.js), and all files splitted for import syntax.

If you are interested there are some simple instructions just below to guide you to migrate from the old particles.js library.

Import and require

const tsParticles = require("@tsparticles/engine");

// or

import { tsParticles } from "@tsparticles/engine";

The imported tsParticles is the same instance you have when including the script in the page using the <script> tag.


Usage

Load tsParticles and configure the particles:

tsParticles demo tsParticles Confetti demo

index.html

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

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

app.js

// @path-json can be an object or an array, the first will be loaded directly, and the object from the array will be randomly selected
/* tsParticles.load(@params); */

tsParticles
    .load({
        id: "tsparticles",
        url: "presets/default.json",
    })
    .then(container => {
        console.log("callback - tsparticles config loaded");
    })
    .catch(error => {
        console.error(error);
    });

//or

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

//or

tsParticles.load({
    id: "tsparticles",
    options: [
        {
            /* options here */
        },
        {
            /* other options here */
        },
    ],
});
//random object

tsParticles.load({
    id: "tsparticles",
    options: [
        {
            /* options here */
        },
        {
            /* other options here */
        },
    ],
    index: 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((event, particles) => {
    /* 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();

$ pnpm i
$ pnpm run build
$ cd demo/vanilla
$ pnpm start

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

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


Migrating from Particles.js

tsParticles has a package that makes this library 100% compatible with the particles.js configuration.

jsDelivr npmjs npm

Seriously, you just need to change the script from particles.js to the bundled compatibility package, et-voilà, you're ready 🧙!
