tsParticles 1.18.0

Release Notes

New Features

  • Manual Particles (closes #839)
  • Links and Triangles frequency (closes #691)
  • Mouse hover can act as a light source (closes #606)
  • Particles duplicates can be reduced (closes #437)
  • Options have now a dedicated GUI editor library (closes #534)
  • Theming options (closes #646)
  • Added support to HSV colors (closes #692)
  • OutMode can be configured for every canvas edge (closes #739)
  • Bounce interaction mode; divs and mouse hover have this mode (closes #774)
  • Particles can have a max radius to move inside (closes #797)
  • Particles movement can be affected by the size, the higher the size, the higher the speed
  • Particles movement has now gravity options
  • Particles can have a custom life span and a life count, like the emitter options
  • Particles can now configure bounces on canvas edge and for particles collisions
  • New Motion settings for prefer-reduced-motion users, it can reduce or disable animations

Bug Fixes

  • Single exported options type, used by all components (closes #898)
  • Fixed click bubble mode (closes #618)

Breaking Changes

  • Color animation with sync false in 1.17.0 used a random color instead of a random speed. This is fixed in 1.18.0 but you need to use the random value in color and not sync: false to achieve the same effect.
