What is PolyK?

PolyK is JavaScript tool for working with polygons. It uses several basic principles to be super simple and super universal:
  • No classes. PolyK does not have any classes or special data structures. PolyK consists of static functions only.
  • What is polygon? For PolyK, polygon is an array of numbers. Each two of them are X and Y coordinate of polygon vertex.
  • Simplicity and speed. Since PolyK does not make you use any special data structures, it is very easy to implement into your project. Since all JS engines are optimised for work with arrays, PolyK runs very fast.

PolyK was used in the game Tiny Monsters. Do you like the project? Make a donation!

API

IsSimple

Checks, if polygon is simple. Polygon is simple, when its edges don't cross each other.
Parameters

Returns
boolean true if Polygon is simple

IsConvex

Checks, if polygon is convex. Polygon is convex, when each inner angle is <= 180°.
Parameters

Returns
boolean

GetArea

Returns the area of polygon.
Parameters

Returns
number

GetAABB

Returns the Axis-aligned Bounding Box of polygon
Parameters

Examples
//={x:0, y:0, width:0, height:0}

Returns
AABB

Triangulate

Computes the triangulation. Output array is array of triangles (triangle = 3 indices of polygon vertices).
Works with simple polygons only.
Parameters

Examples
var ids = PolyK.Triangulate([0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1]);
//=[0, 1, 2, 0, 2, 3]

Returns
Array<number> array of triangles (triangle = 3 indices of polygon vertices)

Slice

Slices the polygon with line segment A-B, defined by ax,ay
and bx,by. A, B must not lay inside a polygon. Returns an array of polygons.
Works with simple polygons only.
Parameters

ContainsPoint

Checks, if polygon contains x, y.
Works with simple polygons only.
Parameters

Returns boolean depth

Raycast

Finds the closest point of polygon, which lays on ray defined by x,y
and dx,dy.
"dist" is the distance of the polygon point, "edge" is the number of the edge, on which intersection occurs, "norm" is the normal in that place, "refl" is reflected direction.
Works with simple polygons only.
Parameters

Examples
//={dist:0, edge:0, norm:{x:0, y:0}, refl:{x:0, y:0}}

Returns Raycast

ClosestEdge

Finds the point on polygon edges, which is closest to x,y
. Returns an object in this format
"dist" is the distance of the polygon point, "edge" is the number of the closest edge, "point" is the closest point on that edge, "norm" is the normal from "point" to x,y.
Parameters

Examples
//={dist:0, edge:0, point:{x:0, y:0}, norm:{x:0, y:0}}

Returns ClosestEdge
