✏️   Draw 2D primitives in sketchy style with React

Motivation

Theory on design and effects of sketchy rendering

Demo

You can find the demo here on CodeSandbox (switch on "module view" on the top right and go to /demo)

Install

npm install react-handy-renderer

Usage

react-handy-renderer exposes a set of five primitives:

  • Rectangle
  • RoundedRect
  • Line
  • Curve
  • Ellipse

and one wrapper component called Paper which serves as a canvas on which these primitives are drawn.

Here is a basic example -

import React from 'react';
import { render, Paper, Ellipse } from 'react-handy-renderer';

function Sketch() {
  return (
    <Paper bowing={0.2} width={600} height={500}>
      <Ellipse
        position={{ x: 480, y: 100 }}
        width={50}
        height={50}
        color="mistyrose"
        weight={0.9}
        roughness={3}
      />
    </Paper>    
  );
}

render(<Sketch />, document.getElementById('canvas-container'));

Examples

RoundedRect

bounded-rect

<RoundedRect
  position={{ x: 300, y: 100 }}
  width={50}
  height={50}
  color="red"
  weight={2}
  radius={2}
  roughness={1.8}
/>

Rectangle

rectangle

<Rectangle
  position={{ x: 390, y: 100 }}
  width={50}
  height={50}
  color="green"
  weight={1}
  roughness={2.3}
/>

Ellipse

ellipse

<Ellipse
  position={{ x: 480, y: 100 }}
  width={50}
  height={50}
  color="blue" // or color={[10, 10, 10, 20]}
  weight={0.9}
  roughness={3}
  bowing={9}
  maxOffset={10}
/>

Line

line

<Line
  from={{ x: 230, y: 140 }}
  to={{ x: 530, y: 140 }}
  weight={4}
  color="mistyrose"
  roughness={2}
/>

Curve

curve

<Curve
  c1={{ x: 30, y: 50 }}
  c2={{ x: 70, y: 90 }}
  c3={{ x: 130, y: 510 }}
  c4={{ x: 230, y: 200 }}
  color="blue"
  weight={2}
  roughness={2}
/>

Usage with ReactDOM renderer

You can also render the primitives when working with ReactDOM as this just renders to a canvas node.

Example -

import React, { Component } from 'react'
import {
  render as create,
  Paper,
  Rectangle,
  Main,
  Ellipse,
  Line,
  RoundedRect,
  Curve,
} from 'react-handy-renderer'

function Sketch() {
  return (
    <Paper bowing={0.2} width={500} height={500}>
      <Line
        from={{x: 10, y: 40}}
        to={{x: 40, y: 60}}
        weight={10}
        color="red"
      />
    </Paper>
  )
}

// Renders the canvas node
create(<Sketch />, document.getElementById('root'))

// create function has already rendered the canvas node.
// So now you can continue to use React with ReactDOM as you used to.
// Make changes directly to the <Sketch /> component.
class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        REACT HANDY RENDERER
      </div>
    )
  }
}

export default App
