Problem Getting Particle Emitter Examples to Load


Recommended Posts

This is going to sound really dumb so please excuse me being such a noob. I am trying to get the pixi-particle examples to work but can't seem to.

What I did:

I downloaded and unzipped the following: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi-particles

Unzipped it and loaded up the examples folder via the command line with: python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

none of the examples are showing anything within http://localhost:8000/ when I navigate to them though. How can I get this working?


Browser is showing the following errors:

pixi.js:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (File not found)
pixi-particles.js:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (File not found)
ParticleExample.js:24 Uncaught ReferenceError: PIXI is not defined
    at new ParticleExample (ParticleExample.js:24)
    at explosion.html:25

What I have been trying (many other things too...):

I have tried: npm install pixi.js pixi-particles 

But it doesn't seem to work, I'm not sure if I'm installing in the wrong place or what?

Examples are hosted from `gh-pages` branch of that repo https://github.com/pixijs/pixi-particles/tree/gh-pages.

It contains pixi-v4 districution in a "lib" folder. 

Usually people dont just download stuff - they clone it and switch branches. That means you are not familiar with git enough, right?

If you download that branch - your simple http-server approach should work. Just be aware that it contains old version of pixi, its up to you to update it and migrate examples if needed. "PIXI.particles.ParticleContainer" was renamed to just "PIXI.ParticleContainer". Read about more differences at https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/wiki/v5-Migration-Guide
