A flexible system for generating greedy meshes of ndarrays.


var compileMesher = require("greedy-mesher")

var mesher = compileMesher({
  extraArgs: 1,
  order: [1, 0],
  append: function(lo_x, lo_y, hi_x, hi_y, val, array, result) {
    result.push([[lo_x, lo_y], [hi_x, hi_y]])

var test_array = require("ndarray-pack")(
[[0, 2, 0, 0],
 [0, 1, 1, 0],
 [0, 1, 1, 0],
 [0, 0, 0, 0]])

var result = []
mesher(test_array, result)


npm install greedy-mesher


This routine generates a greedy mesher for a given order and list of closures

  • order An array representing the order in which to mesh the input.
  • extraArgs The number of optional arguments to pass to each closure.
  • skip(a,...) A closure which tests if the given voxel should be skipped. (Default: skips 0)
  • merge(a,b,...) A closure which tests if voxels a and b can be merged in the mesh. (Default: checks if voxels are equal)
  • append(lo0, lo1, ..., lon, hi0, hi1, ..., hin, val, ...)
  • useGetter if set, use .get() to access underlying data store
  • debug If set, print out the generated source code to the console

Returns A compiled mesh generator. Call this method using:

var my_mesh = mesher(array, option1, option2, ...)
