Creates a PIXI.SimpleRope

The rope allows you to draw a texture across several points and then manipulate these points


  import { SimpleRope, onTick } from 'svelte-pixi'
  import * as PIXI from 'pixi.js'

  const ropeLength = 918 / 20

  let count = 0
  let points = []

  for (let i = 0; i < 20; i++) {
    points.push({ x: i * ropeLength, y: 0 });

  onTick((delta) => {
    count += 0.1;

    points =, i) => ({
      x: i * ropeLength + Math.cos((i * 0.3) + count) * 20,
      y: Math.sin((i * 0.5) + count) * 30



Component API


Name Type Default Description
drawMode PIXI.DRAW_MODES The way the Mesh should be drawn, can be any of the PIXI.DRAW_MODES constants.
geometry PIXI.Geometry Includes vertex positions, face indices, normals, colors, UVs, and
custom attributes within buffers, reducing the cost of passing all this data to the GPU.
Can be shared between multiple Mesh objects.
instance PIXI.SimpleRope The PIXI.SimpleRope instance. Can be set or bound to.
points PointLike[] An array of points or point-like objects to construct this rope.

If this array changes the internal geometry will be recreated.
Consider using PIXI.Points and mutating them if that becomes too expensive.
shader PIXI.Shader PIXI.MeshMaterial Represents the vertex and fragment shaders that processes the geometry and runs on the GPU.
Can be shared between multiple Mesh objects.
state PIXI.State Represents the WebGL state the Mesh required to render, excludes shader and geometry.
E.g., blend mode, culling, depth testing, direction of rendering triangles, backface, etc.
texture PIXI.Texture The texture to use
textureScale number 0 Positive values scale rope texture keeping its aspect ratio.
You can reduce alpha channel artifacts by providing a larger texture and downsampling here.
If set to zero, texture will be stretched instead.
