PixiJS HTMLText

npm (scoped)

An alternative to PIXI.Text that works with both WebGL and Canvas, however, it has some advantages:

  • Supports HTML tags for styling such as <strong>, or <em>, as well as <span style="">
  • Better support for emojis and other HTML layout features, better compatibility with CSS line-height and letter-spacing.

Disadvantages:

  • Unlike PIXI.Text, HTMLText rendering will vary slightly between platforms and browsers. HTMLText uses SVG/DOM to render text and not Context2D's fillText like PIXI.Text.
  • Performance and memory usage is on-par with PIXI.Text (that is to say, slow and heavy)
  • Only works with browsers that support <foreignObject>.

Usage

import { HTMLText } from 'pixi.js';

const text = new HTMLText("Hello World", { fontSize: 20 });

Important: Because the HTMLText object takes a raw HTML string, it's represents a potential vector for XSS, it's strongly encourage you santize input especially if you're accepting user-strings.

Custom Fonts

Because rendering within a <foreignObject> element does not have access to fonts available in the current document, therefore, you need to load the fonts explicitly.

const text = new HTMLText("Hello World", { fontFamily: 'Custom' });

await text.style.loadFont('./path/to/custom-regular.ttf', { family: 'Custom' });

Multiple Weights

const text = new HTMLText("Hello <b>World</b>", { fontFamily: 'Custom' });

await Promise.all([
    text.style.loadFont('./path/to/custom-regular.ttf', { family: 'Custom' }),
    text.style.loadFont('./path/to/custom-bold.ttf', { family: 'Custom', weight: 'bold' });
]);

Not all styles and values are compatible between PIXI.Text, mainly because Text is rendered using a DOM element instead of Context2D's fillText API.
