P5 or PixiJS?
h

I'm having difficulty choosing P5.js or PixiJS.
PixiJS is very fast but doesn't come with many extra tools and also in my case sprite-based rendering isn't necessary.
P5.js is slow but comes with many extra tools, great documentation, many addons, and a large community.

EDIT: I'm not trying to make a game or anything

  1. pixijs - built for making games, but that's it. So it's like phaser.
  2. p5.js - built for making sketches, but that's it. Unless you want to build a game engine from scratch, then use it?

At the end of the day, both are good, but I like p5js but pixijs is nice but p5js is cool so use p5js.
