Forgive me for hijacking your post but I also wanted to add that it would be nice if there was a bit more documentation/examples on the use of multiple plugins.


Specifically, can the ThrowProps plugin work with the Kinetic plugin? What would the usage look like?  ....ThrowProps: { Kinetic: {....} }   or Kinetic: { ThrowProps: {...} }?  I assume it would be the former, but unless I made a mistake it didn't seem to work when I tried.

Hi Guys,


The reason why there isn't a lot of info on writing plugins for plugins is because it isn't supported. You can't pass values into 1 plugin that have been run through another plugin in the same tween. For instance, properties controlled by KineticPlugin can not also be run through ThrowProps at the same time in the same tween.


This is the reason why we baked the functionality of DirectionalRotationPlugin, RoundPropsPlugin, ColorPropsPlugin and BezierPlugin into the KineticPlugin. 


In the case of using ThrowProps with KineticJS, you can create a ThrowProps tween that uses an onUpdate to call draw() on the target object's layer and you should be fine.
