These are chat archives for pixijs/pixi.js
and I wanted the Layer object to have the concept of its size, explicitly.
You still haven't told me what the size is for. What the size is for will let me know how you should implement it, but you just keep saying "because it has size" which doesn't really help. Why do you need a size? What is it for? What is the behavior you are trying to achieve?
I mentioned the multitude of ways that size could be used, and how you would use features in pixi to get that behavior but you still haven't told me what you are trying to do.
but there's simplicity in the fact that you know a Layer's (my layers) dimensions, and it's not implicit
If it isn't implicit, then it sounds like you want to add a property that you set to a specific value just for informational purposes. What does that have to do with pixi? Why not just add a property in your subclass that exposes that information for whatever you are doing?
