Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

JavaScript

Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

                const frame = new Frame("outside", 1280, 720, black);
frame.on("ready", ()=>{ // ES6 Arrow Function - similar to function(){}

	// the GSAP code is at the bottom with some comments
	// thanks Carl and GSAP for the original post
	// not exactly the same but the systems are a little different

	// could store circles in Array but on canvas usually we use a Container
    const circles = new Container(stageW, stageH).addTo();
    loop(400, () => {
        // ZIM VEE (Pick) values give us dynamic parameters in many places in ZIM
        // passing in {min:val, max:val} gives range between
        // in this case in a loop we could just use rand(10)
        // passing in array randomly picks from array
        // in this case in a loop we could just use shuffle([etc.])[0]
        // but ZIM VEE is handy for when not in a loop
        // such as passing a time into an interval, objects into Tile or Emitter, etc.
        // can also use a series(pink,green,blue,yellow,purple) to pick colors in order
        // can also use a function that returns a value 
        new Circle({max:10}, [pink,green,blue,yellow,purple], dark).center(circles);
    })

    circles.animate({
        props:{
            y:{min:0, max:stageH}, // ZIM VEE (Pick) values that get reset each loop
            x:{min:0, max:stageW},
            scale:3
        },
        time:{min:500, max:700},
        sequence:0, // operate on each child of Container - 0 for at same time
        rewind:true,
        loop:true,
        loopPick:true, // pick from ZIM VEE (Pick) values each loop
        ease:"quartOut", // try "quartInOut"
        rewindCall:t=>t.pauseAnimate(),
        loopCall:t=>t.pauseAnimate()
    });
    interval([800,900], ()=>pauseAnimate(false), null, null, true); // sync the animates and pause on blur

	// I think the clumping with quartOut is because the pause activates before reaching its original position
	// whereas the quartInOut seems to make it back to its starting position... strange - but I like it better
