New JS Library: grid

Aug 02 2014 Published by under JavaScript

I’m continuing to dig through old code and consolidate and release it.

This new library, grid, is not a CSS layout util, but draws grids of various kinds on an HTML5 Canvas. Here’s a demo of the various kinds of grids it can currently draw. Click for full size.

I could go into all the options and so forth, but it’s all pretty straightforward and you can just check the readme at the github site:

There may be some minor bugs in this or some tweaks needed. If so, just let me know, and I’ll fix it up. There’s definitely a lot of optimization that can go on here. I may experiment with creating an offscreen canvas the size of one cell, drawing one cell there, and then blitting that across the rest of the grid. We’ll see. In the meantime, it mostly works. Enjoy.
