Best way to make the camera follow a sprite?

I want to make the camera follow my sprite around. (so my sprite is always in the center of the screen)

What's the best way to go about this? Does Pixi have built-in camera functions? I thought about just moving everything else relative to my sprite, but I thought this wouldn't be the best way.

I googled around a bit, but with no luck. 

Any tips or resources would be much appreciated. :)

Thanks.

No, PIXI doesnt have camera functions.

That's the best substitution:

var app = new PIXI.Application(...)

world.position.set(app.screen.width/2, app.screen.height/2);
world.scale.set(whatever you want)
world.rotation = some_rotation

world.pivot.copy(sprite.position);

The idea is that you PIN "sprite.position" which is relative to the stage, to global center of the screen. That's how position+pivot combination works.
