rn-sprite-sheet

A sprite sheet animation library for React Native.

rn-sprite-sheet

Install

npm install --save rn-sprite-sheet

Import

import SpriteSheet from 'rn-sprite-sheet';

Usage

  1. Create ref for SpriteSheet
  2. Set the source (must be required; { uri } will not work)
  3. Specify the columns and rows (each frame must be the same size)
  4. Create animations object (each key is an animation name and their value should be an array of frame indexes)
  5. Play an animation by calling the play method on a SpriteSheet reference and pass it a config object with at least a type property

Example

<SpriteSheet
  ref={ref => (this.mummy = ref)}
  source={require('./assets/mummy.png')}
  columns={9}
  rows={6}
  // height={200} // set either, none, but not both
  // width={200}
  imageStyle={{ marginTop: -1 }}
  animations={{
    walk: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17],
    appear: Array.from({ length: 15 }, (v, i) => i + 18),
    die: Array.from({ length: 21 }, (v, i) => i + 33)
  }}
/>;
// ...
play = config => this.mummy.play(config);

Methods

To be called on a SpriteSheet reference

play({
  type, // (required) name of the animation (name is specified as a key in the animation prop)
  fps = 24, // frames per second
  loop = false, // if true, replays animation after it finishes
  resetAfterFinish = false, // if true, the animation will reset back to the first frame when finished; else will remain on the last frame when finished
  onFinish = () => {} // called when the animation finishes; will not work when loop === true
})

stop(callback)
