a simple pattern

This library is inspired by Textures.js but tries to do a few things differently:

  • svg-patterns
    does not limit you in which frontend stack you use. It just returns virtual-dom nodes.
  • Because Textures.js includes D3, it weighs
    216k + 8k
    .
    svg-patterns
    weighs
    19k
    .

Installing

npm install svg-patterns

Usage

svg-patterns
exposes several styles, which you can customize by passing an object. The following list shows all styles, including their default options. You can fiddle with them on the website.

Getting Started

If you load a style via

require('svg-patterns/p/style')
, the bundle will be smaller. But you can also load it via
require('svg-patterns').style
.
const lines = require('svg-patterns/p/lines')
const stringify = require('virtual-dom-stringify')

const pattern = lines({ stroke: 'darkorange', background: '#343434', orientations: [45] })

process.stdout.write( <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"> <defs>${stringify(pattern)}</defs> <rect width="200" height="200" style="fill: ${pattern.url()}"></rect> </svg>)
