Vector graphics in JavaScript

Posted on Fri 29 July 2005
Want vector graphics in JavaScript? Forget the new canvas tag available in Safari and soon in Mozilla: check out the JavaScript vector graphics Library.

Crazy stuff: vector drawing primitives written in JavaScript using DIVs for pixels!

The classical algorithms (Bresehnam & co) have been optimized to group adjacent pixels having the same color in a single DIV. An interesting application of this library is the function grapher.

Awesome! But is it really usable for real-world applications?
