I’ve recently started playing around with some of the stuff that is available in HTML 5. It’s pretty sweet, I can’t wait until more web developers start building stuff with these new technologies. We desperately need a killer app like facebook to start using HTML 5 elements and asking users to upgrade. That would either force IE to join the ranks of modern browsers and actually start supporting some of this stuff or make people upgrade to a modern browser like Chrome, FireFox, Safari, or Opera.
Enough of the rant… on to the demo:
To see this you need a modern browser that supports the <canvas> tag such as Chrome, FireFox, Safari or Opera
If you view source on this page you can see my heavily commented code to see what’s going on. But if you really want to learn more Mozilla has a great canvas tutorial you might also wanna check out this
<canvas> cheat sheet by Jacob Seidelin. If you’re a web developer… start using this stuff! It’s fun, it doesn’t require plugins and I’m sure you could build something waaaay cooler than this little demo. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, I’m all ears.
