Finding the distance between two points in Phaser
If new to Phaser
The basic example
If I am using phaser as a dependency there is no need for a quick refresher for how to write the 2d distance formula, it’s right there in Phasers Math Object. To use it I gave it four arguments that are the x, and y positions of both points concerned.
So anywhere in my project I can find distance like this.
A more advanced Phaser.Math.distance example using some graphics
So I put togather a quick demo for this one method involving two Graphics display objects.
The distance between two points comes up all the time in my projects. As I learn more about phaser I am happy to know that this is a great project to know a thing or two about. When it comes to making projects vanilla js style I can not tell you how many times I end up fishing for the distance formula, trying to remember how to write it yet again, but now it is always there for me within phaser, along with almost everything else I could want.
