Updates and news from the Konva framework.
Hello. My name is Anton. I am Konva 2d canvas framework maintainer. I just want to tell you some news about the framework and share couple cool demos.
1. Even faster konva v7.
The v7 of Konva has many performance fixes. And starting from firstname.lastname@example.org it is a little faster and uses less memory. The object''s initialization works MUCH faster now. For many apps, it is an edge case and doesn''t affect the general performance. But it can be a huge boost if you are creating many shapes in realtime.
Check out the full (and short) changelog.
2. Image crop demo.
I made a small demo that demonstrates how to implement an image resize similar to how object-fit: cover from CSS is working. I hope it will be useful for you.
3. Making excel-like grid with Konva
There is an interesting React component SpreadSheet Grid that is using Konva under-the-hood (at least they are using Konva at the time I am writing this text). The component is doing a very good job in terms of performance. Just take a look at how it works.
4. Site updates
I was working hard on the site to make it faster and simpler. The pages should load much faster now. I also tried to update the index page to show the main features, better demo, and more Konva users.
Let me know what you think about it. Is it better now?
