Create a collection of vertices.


example picture for vertices()

import numpy as np

def setup():
    random_triangle_vertices = 100 * np.random.rand(25, 2)
    with py5.begin_shape(py5.TRIANGLES):


Create a collection of vertices. The purpose of this method is to provide an alternative to repeatedly calling vertex() in a loop. For a large number of vertices, the performance of vertices() will be much faster.

The coordinates parameter should be a numpy array with one row for each vertex. There should be two or three columns for 2D or 3D points, respectively. There may also be an additional two columns for UV texture mapping values.


    coordinates: npt.NDArray[np.floating],  # 2D array of vertex coordinates and optional UV texture mapping values
) -> None
