JavaScript Drawing Library GraphicsJS 1.2.0 Released + Introduction from SitePoint May 3rd, 2017 by AnyChart Team

GraphicsJS, our powerful JavaScript drawing library that we open-sourced last year, has recently got an update to version 1.2.0. It is the next best news of 2017, a great addition to winning a Devies Award with GraphicsJS for the category “JavaScript Technologies” and to the 7.13.0/7.13.1 releases of our JS/HTML5 charting solutions AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyMap, and AnyGantt.

So, we invite you to take a very quick look at the most important updates (we’ll highlight the two below). And then – in case you want to feel the real power of JavaScript drawing and have not used GraphicsJS in your business or fun web projects yet – we are sharing a nice article published on SitePoint just recently. It is an introduction to GraphicsJS based on two tutorials. They will guide you through the most valuable features of this JavaScript drawing library and demonstrate them in action, and you’ll learn how to easily create a naïve art picture and a time-killer game.
