Canvas Pocket Reference: Scripted Graphics for HTML5
Use HTML5's Canvas element to program games.
"The Canvas tag is a revolutionary advance in what we can do with web browsers," says author David Flanagan . "I really do think that the client-side graphics enabled by the Canvas tag has the potential to change the web. The Canvas tag is one of the most important features of HTML5. And, it's fun to program!"
"Readers will learn everything they need to know about scripted client-side graphics and will be able to draw whatever they want in their web pages: this might be scientific data visualizations, a video game, or cool special effects. In short, readers will learn to master their pixels!"
This book provides both a tutorial that covers all of the element's features with plenty of examples and a definitive reference to each of the Canvas-related classes, methods, and properties.
Speaking of fun, try David's holiday bookmarklet , a marvelous example of splendid Canvas coding.
