I've converted the old Particles.js library in typescript, fixed some bugs and implemented some good pull requests requested in the old project.

And most important, kept everything dependency free and compatible!

Want to see samples?

Checkout the CodePen collection I’m keeping updated

https://codepen.io/collection/DPOage

You can also use FontAwesome (or any other font you love) icons as particles! (Fonts must follow their instructions for installing, including FontAwesome, they're not included with tsParticles)

All samples are ready to use!

If you want to contribute feel free to join this is the GitHub project:

https://github.com/matteobruni/tsparticles

You are free to use the library in your frontend and you can report any bug or issue you found and it will be fixed as soon as possible.

I really like that you've revitalised an existing project fixing bugs and improving code quality instead of starting a brand new project. It's usually more fun to start from scratch, but inevitably the new thing will have fewer features, its own set of bugs, and you likely burn out from all the effort and abandon it as well. That seems understandably quite common in the hyper creative javascript community, so I think you should be commended for taking the steady maintenance approach instead; well done! Open source and community for the win ✨
