a simple and powerful pixi.js easing/tweening/animating library


  • ease any pixi.js parameter, including tint (using a blend function or stepped)
  • use any Penner function by name or any user-defined function
  • support for generic number parameters
  • change scale or skew using one parameter (e.g., scale: 5 changes both scale.x and scale.y)
  • set default durations and easing function for all eases
  • uses eventemitter3 for events for both the easing lists and individual eases
  • tracks eases on DisplayObject and cleans up when DisplayObject is destroyed
  • includes a default easing list so you don't have to instantiate for simple cases
  • includes a shake parameter
  • good test coverage

Live Demo

Migrating to v3

  • changed default update loop to use requestAnimationFrame to remove the dependency on pixi.js
  • to use PIXI.Ticker (like in v2), pass new Ease({ ticker: PIXI.Ticker.shared })
  • ordinary usage should be unchanged


yarn add pixi-ease

or grab the latest release and use it:

<script src="/directory-to-file/pixi.js"></script>
<script src="/directory-to-file/pixi-ease.js"></script>
<!-- or <script type="module" src="/directory-to-file/"></script> -->
    const ease = new Ease.Ease(options)
    // or Ease.ease.add(...)

Simple Usage

import * as PIXI from 'pixi.js'
import { Ease, ease } from 'pixi-ease'

const app = new PIXI.Application()
const test = app.stage.addChild(new PIXI.Sprite(PIXI.Texture.WHITE))
test.tint = 0x00ff00

const example = ease.add(test, { x: 20, y: 15, alpha: 0.25, rotation: 20, scale: 5, skewX: 0.25, blend: 0xff0000 } }, { reverse: true, duration: 2500, ease: 'easeInOutQuad' })
example.on('each', () => console.log('ease updated object during frame using PIXI.Ticker.'))
example.once('complete', () => console.log('move ease complete.'))

test.generic = 25
const generic = ease.add(test, { generic: 0 }, { duration: 1500, ease: 'easeOutQuad' })
generic.on('each', () => console.log(test.generic))

const secondEase = new Ease({ duration: 3000, wait: 1500, ease: 'easeInBack', repeat: 3 })
const test2 = app.stage.addChild(new PIXI.Sprite(PIXI.Texture.WHITE))
secondEase.add(test2, { tint: [0xff0000, 0x00ff00, 0x000ff], scaleX: 2 })

Other Libraries

If you liked pixi-ease, please try my other open source libraries:

  • pixi-viewport - A highly configurable viewport/2D camera designed to work with pixi.js.
  • pixi-scrollbox - pixi.js scrollbox: a masked box that can scroll vertically or horizontally with scrollbars (uses pixi-ease)
  • intersects - a simple collection of 2d collision/intersects functions. Supports points, circles, lines, axis-aligned boxes, and polygons
