In this chapter, we’ll explore what you can do with the HTML5 Canvas API—a cool API that enables you to dynamically generate and render graphics, charts, images, and animation. We’ll walk you through using the basics of the rendering API to create a drawing that can scale and adjust to the browser environment. We’ll show you how to create dynamic pictures based on user input in a heatmap display. Of course, we’ll also alert you to the pitfalls of using HTML5 Canvas and share tricks to overcome them.
