npm install matter-js
Performance with other tools (e.g. Webpack, Vue etc.)
Bundlers and frameworks may reduce real-time performance when using their default configs, especially in development modes.
Visit the Getting started wiki page for a minimal usage example which should work in both browsers and Node.js.
Also see the Running and Rendering wiki pages, which show how to use your own game and rendering loops.
See the list of tutorials.
The engine can be extended through plugins, see these resources:
Building and Contributing
To build you must first install node.js, then run
This will install the required build dependencies, then run
npm run dev
to spawn a development server. For information on contributing see CONTRIBUTING.md.
To see what's new or changed in the latest version, see the changelog.
