What is the best way to implement pixi.js game/app loop?

Hi everyone. Although I found many articles about game loop, requestAnimationFrame, delta time etc. I want to ask you here what is the best way to implement it. As a "game loop" I understand the code which should execute several times per second non-stop, even if a user switch between the tabs in the browser. I found this library https://github.com/kittykatattack/smoothie, in which you can specify your frame rate which is independent from requestAnimationFrame, but update() function stops when user switch between tabs.

Any help, recommendation, or a plugin for best solution?

p.s. Simple example will be great.

@Exca which also uses RAF :)

As I saw its implementation is based on RAF. I try it with simple example and the animation is stopped when I change the tab:

ticker.add(function (time) {
