HTML5 Canvas

26 11 2010

When you mention HTML5, you can’t really go very long without having to talk about javascript.  One way to utilize the javascript feature through HTML is through the canvas element.  If you would like to learn more about how to use the canvas element, in order to perfect your use of javascript, 2D image depth or learn about other features offered through canvas, simply visit Dev.Opera.  You will be given a very thorough tutorial about how to use the HTML5 canvas feature to the fullest.

Among one of the features that this specific tutorial offers is a downloadable zip file.  If you know that you would like to test the examples given, then all you have to do is download the zip file to your PC or Mac OS.  It’s that simple.  However, if you simply want to read through the tutorial in the order that is shown to you, then simply click on the highlighted text in order to view the demonstration.  That way you could see how canvassing would work in action.  The code that created the action directly follows the demo, in order to reinforce what you just viewed.

The author of the tutorial also includes links of ways that others have used HTML5 canvas.  Although most of the examples are done through Opera, you should have a better understanding of how HTML5 canvas can help you.  In addition, there are links to online projects and demos.  Between all of the learning that you will inevitably absorb from the tutorial and the demos that accompany the site, you will be on your way to being an HTML5 canvas expert in no time.
