Syntax

jCanvas's simple syntax makes drawing shapes as easy as it should be.

// Draw a circle
$("canvas").drawArc({
  draggable: true,
  fillStyle: "green",
  x: 100, y: 100,
  radius: 50
});

Seriously, what is jCanvas?

jCanvas is a JavaScript library, written using jQuery and for jQuery, that wraps around the HTML5 canvas API, adding new features and capabilities, many of which are customizable. Capabilities include layers, events, drag-and-drop, animation, and much more.

The result is a flexible API wrapped up in a sugary, jQuery-esque syntax that brings power and ease to the HTML5 canvas.
