    Rubik's Cube

    A web based Rubik's Cube implementation. The goal of this package was to provide a minimal interface to the rendered Rubik's cube that would allow consumers to implement custom UI elements and build upon the provided functionality.

    Features

    • 3D rendered Rubik's Cube
    • Customizable material and textures
    • Exposed Singmaster notation methods
    • Configurable rotation speed
    • Responsive canvas

    Installation

    NOTE: Three.js is a required peer dependency of this package. It has purposefully been excluded in order to reduce bundle size and allow the consumer to use their preferred version.

    yarn add @curtishughes/rubiks-cube three
    
    npm install @curtishughes/rubiks-cube three
    

    Exports

    Default:

    • RubiksCube(canvas: HTMLCanvasElement, materials: THREE.MeshBasicMaterial[], speed?: number, width?: string, height?: string)
      • F (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side currently facing the solver
      • B (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side opposite the front
      • U (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side above or on top of the front side
      • D (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side opposite the top, underneath the Cube
      • L (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side directly to the left of the front
      • R (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side directly to the right of the front
      • f (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side facing the solver and the corresponding middle layer
      • b (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side opposite the front and the corresponding middle layer
      • u (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the top side and the corresponding middle layer
      • d (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the bottom layer and the corresponding middle layer
      • l (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side to the left of the front and the corresponding middle layer
      • r (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the side to the right of the front and the corresponding middle layer
      • x (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the entire Cube on R
      • y (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the entire Cube on U
      • z (clockwise?: boolean, duration?: number): rotate the entire Cube on F

    Named:

    • materials
      • classic: THREE.MeshBasicMaterial[]: the classic Rubik's Cube material (shown in above gif)

    Usage

    Rubik's Cube is not coupled with any specific framework. However, I have included some examples of how it can be used with a few of the popular frontend frameworks:

    React

    import React, { useRef, useEffect, useState } from 'react';
    import RubiksCube, { materials } from '@curtishughes/rubiks-cube';
    
    function App() {
      const canvasRef = useRef<HTMLCanvasElement>(null);
      const [cube, setCube] = useState<RubiksCube>();
    
      useEffect(() => {
        if (canvasRef.current) {
          setCube(new RubiksCube(canvasRef.current, materials.classic, 100));
        }
      }, []);
    
      return (
        <>
          <canvas width="200px" height="200px" ref={canvasRef} />
          <button onClick={() => { if (cube) cube.F() }}>F</button>
          <button onClick={() => { if (cube) cube.F(false) }}>F'</button>
          {/** ... **/}
        </>
      );
    }
    
    export default App;
    

    Vue

    <template>
      <div>
        <canvas ref="cube" />
        <button @click="() => cube.F()">F</button>
        <button @click="() => cube.F(false)">F'</button>
      </div>
    </template>
    
    <script lang="ts">
    import { Component, Vue } from 'vue-property-decorator';
    import RubiksCube, { materials } from '@curtishughes/rubiks-cube';
    
    @Component
    export default class Editor extends Vue {
      private cube!: RubiksCube;
    
      mounted() {
        const canvas = this.$refs.cube as HTMLCanvasElement;
        this.cube = new RubiksCube(canvas, materials.classic, 100);
      }
    }
    </script>
    

    Customize material/textures

    import * as THREE from 'three';
    /* IMPORTANT: Load RubiksCube from the 'core' sub-module to avoid loading unnecessary material assets */
    import RubiksCube from '@curtishughes/rubiks-cube/core';
    
    new RubiksCube(canvas,  [
      new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({ map: new THREE.TextureLoader().load('path/to/texture1') }),
      new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({ map: new THREE.TextureLoader().load('path/to/texture2') }),
      new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({ map: new THREE.TextureLoader().load('path/to/texture3') }),
      new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({ map: new THREE.TextureLoader().load('path/to/texture4') }),
      new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({ map: new THREE.TextureLoader().load('path/to/texture5') }),
      new THREE.MeshBasicMaterial({ map: new THREE.TextureLoader().load('path/to/texture6') }),
    ], 100);
