Making clip regions with holes can be confusing. I grabbed this simple example by user @Balage1551 from the Konva discord as I thought it was a great example.
Konva – Rotating a rectangle to cover another
In an earlier post I covered how to rotate a shape around any point on the canvas without using offset. In this post I’ll look at how to rotate and scale a rectangle so that it entirely covers the space it occupied before rotation. This is useful if you ever have to rotate an imageContinue reading “Konva – Rotating a rectangle to cover another”
Konva – HTML5 canvas synchronisation, part 2, peer-to-peer
In part 2 of my hacking a way to synchronise HTML5 canvases across browser windows, I’m taking the results from part 1 and making them work between browser windows via communications lib PeerJS.

Konva – Zooming the stage under the mouse
When you start zooming with Konva you pretty quickly get frustrated about how to zoom relative to the mouse position and not the top-left corner of the stage. Here’s how to do that.
Konva – Capture canvas animation to GIF in the browser
I’ve seen a number of questions regarding how to save an HTML5 canvas animation as an animated GIF. So, lets have at it…
A Require for ClearScript
Konva – HTML5 Canvas text on a path
The canvas does not yet provide the same level of character manipulation and measuring functions as we might find in the Windows GDI or similar. But it does give us canvas.measureText() to measure character size. Combine that with path.getPointAtLength() and we can fit text to a path. Measuring Text To have any chance to fitContinue reading “Konva – HTML5 Canvas text on a path”
Konva – HTML5 Canvas bottoms-up
Or, how to get the Y-axis to go bottom-up when the normal situation is for it to increase from the top-down. While we are at it, we’ll develop the bones of a plotting class. I’ll be developing my code with the use of the Konva JS canvas library which is a wrapper for the HTML5Continue reading “Konva – HTML5 Canvas bottoms-up”
Konva – using a shape’s transform to rotate points
The Konva HTML5 canvas lib has a very useful feature that can spit out the transform applied to a shape, and which we can borrow to rotate points without math. The example below illustrates the use of rect’s transform to position the corner circles. Codepen here. What is a transform ? I couldn’t find aContinue reading “Konva – using a shape’s transform to rotate points”
