Getting Started

Include the library at the top of your html file:

  <script src="draft.js/dist/draft.min.js"></script>
  <div id="view" style="width: 100%; height: 100%"></div>

Write a new script and include it after your html content:

// Create a new draft document and add a group to it
var doc = draft('my_document');
var group = doc.group();

// Add some shapes to the group
var rect = group.rect(200, 150).fill('#18f');
var circle = group.circle(50).fill('#f1c');

// Create a view for the group
var view = group.view(600, 400);

// Use the draft-svg plugin to render an image
var body = document.getElementById('body');
