Canvas tutorial


Recommended Posts

I looked at the HTML5 tutorial recently and noticed the "canvas" tag. I did a quick google and it has been heralded by many as the replacment of Flash. However, there is not nearly enough information to merit that. I also discovered many amazing webpages using canvas, so I would think it would be a good idea for a tutorial.

It's got a heck of an API to master, though it's similar to other graphics API's I've used elsewhere. The best tutorials out there contain lots of very long pages.Already, third-party developers have libraries for simplifying a lot of canvas tasks, like drawing charts and graphs. rgraph is an example. I haven't used it, but it looks pretty cool.

The API is insane. I'll definitely give you that. But the potential it has is amazing. This link was posted by Fmdpa a while back, but if stuff like this can be done now, Flash is going to become obsolete very quickly.http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/creatin...h-html-5-can-1/
