tsParticles v1.15.0

Release notes

New features

  • Interactivity grab mode now has a line color option
  • Particles and link lines have a warp option, Particles will maintain the same coordinates in out mode and lines will link beyond canvas borders
  • Particles color now has an animation section like the one on angle, opacity and size. It will animate the particles color.
  • Added click mode pause to play/pause animations when the click event occurs.
  • Added triangles options to links to fill the triangles between lines, color and opacity customizable
  • Added id propery to links to create links between particles with the same id
  • PolygonMask now has a new property data to work with, where you can specify a string with the SVG to use (well formatted, namespaces included) or an object with paths (array or single string, just the data, not the tag) and size

Changes

  • Renamed lineLinked in links in particles, interactivity.modes.connect and interactivity.modes.grab, it's still supported the old syntax
  • Container particles.addParticle now it's an easier method, it has two parameters: position ({ x: 0, y: 0 } for example) and overrideOptions (the same object specified in particles options). This method will add a new particle in that position if not undefined and with that options if not undefined
  • Fixed a bug with links color used in override options (emitters, custom particles, etc...)
  • Improved bubble mode interoperability with other modes
  • Star shape improved with new draw method and another additional option called inset to specify the inset length.
