How to Use the new HTML5 Canvas Element

How to Use the new HTML5 Canvas Element

About the canvas element in HTML5 - The canvas element is part of HTML5 and allows for dynamic, scriptable rendering of 2D shapes and bitmap images. It is a low level, procedural model that updates a bit map and does not have a built in scene graph. The canvas was initially introduced by Apple for use inside their own Mac OS X WebKit component, powering applications like Dashboard widgets and the Safari browser. Later, it was adopted by Gecko browsers and Opera and standardized by the WHATWG on new proposed specifications for next generation web technologies.

Reasons to Start Using HTML5 Today

Reasons to Start Using HTML5 Today

There is a lot of excitement around HTML5, and well there should be because this major reworking of HTML brings functionality that is very exciting. Although the new standard is still being defined many parts of it are pretty much done. Many websites currently on the World Wide Web have already started using HTML5.

HTML5 is about using semantic markup and with it you can create elements that are more relevant to web sites thus making your markup more concise and readable. The new semantics give data meaning. It enables search engines to more accurately determine the various types of information on a page and create an outline, or table of contents if you will thus making it easier to index. Also with the new canvas tag you can generate exciting dynamic content.

Browsers are now also now more capable of understanding the new standards for HTML5, CSS3 and the JavaScript API's.  It is a fun time to be a front end web developer.

Is it too early to use HTML5?

Is it too early to use HTML5?

There is a fair amount of buzz out there regarding HTML5. After all there hasn't been a major update to HTML since HTML4. But, let’s analyze how we got here and where we are going to see if implementing HTML5 on new web sites is realistic. If nothing else the HTML5 buzz is well worth the hype, it offers many new and exciting changes.

The W3C started developing HTML5 in June of 2004 with the expectation of completing its development as a working draft by midyear 2007. HTML5 is currently slated to reach a Candidate Recommendation stage by 2012. It also has been stated that HTML5 will not reach a W3C Recommendation until 2022.

As you can see if you are developing HTML5 sites for today there is a high probability that your site may not work by the time the official working draft is released. The action we take with HTML5 is to have fun with it, implement it in a test based only mode and learn the new standard as it develops. By no means would we build a companies or individuals brand or reputation using the standard as it exists today.
