Platforming with Pixi

I decided to create a 2d platformer, and I'll probably use pixi.js in order to create it. My main mechanic will be a rope that you can use to swing across platforms like in the old SNES game Pac-In-Time. This mechanic is also in the popular new game Speedrunners. I think this mechanic is pretty cool, and if I can design levels that work with this mechanic I'll include it. I was thinking about using the physics engine p2.js, but I decided against it because I don't really understand how to use it. I may not include the mechanic and make the game similar to a difficult, classic platformer like Super Meat Boy.
