Canvas Pocket Reference

Canvas Pocket Reference

This book covers the use of the HTML element canvas. The author explains how to draw lines, polygons, curves, apply colors, gradients, transparency, transformations, work with text, shadows and perform image processing operations using JavaScript. The reader needs a working knowledge of HTML and JavaScript. The first chapter is a tutorial on various aspects of canvas and the second chapter is a reference resource that gives the book its name. One cool thing I found is that despite being a "Pocket Reference", there are code examples too. The examples are simple and help those just starting to play with canvas. I recommend this book for those who will or already working with canvas. A reference guide is essential for anyone working with this technology. You can check my pt-BR review at: Full Review >
