Create beautiful, interactive images on the Web with RaphaelJS, the JavaScript library that lets you draw Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) right in the browser. With RaphaelJS you can quickly learn how to paint the screen with shapes and colors that you can turn into lively, animated graphics and visualizations.
