I'm working on a web based game and using the ImpactJS game engine which is pretty low level. I found it tedious for web engines to have to enter the frame of the animations I wanted to use each time and even had to go so far as to calculate the correct frame (if my spritesheets were large!)

I created PlaybackJS as part of a bigger set of web-based tools for making web games. It is compatible with jQuery and has support for firing events in vanilla javascript too.

  • Initialize with an existing image object with options property imgPtr
  • Or initialize with an image from the web with options property imgSrc
  • Dynamically change replay speed
  • Step forward or backward through the frames
  • Has math utility functions to calculate the cell rectangle and frame index from the mouse click
  • Replays on a target canvas object-- you can blit this image data directly into your 2D games with little extra work

Now you can make animations easier. Please star, fork, and share!
