Transitioning to HTML5′s canvas

If you’re like me and interested in where HTML5 is going, especially where canvas is involved, Grant Skinner has released an awesome new library, http://easeljs.com/.

Essentially it makes the transition from AS3 to using HTML5′s canvas that much easier. From the website:

“The new Canvas element in HTML5 is powerful, but it can be difficult to work with. It has no internal concept of discrete display elements, so you are required to manage updates manually. The Easel Javascript library provides a full, hierarchical display list, a core interaction model, and helper classes to make working with Canvas much easier…. The API is loosely based on Flash’s display list, and should be easy to pick up for both JS and AS3 developers.”

Hopefully I’ll get a chance to work with it in the near future!
