Shared HTML5 Canvas

<- Return to Programming blog
I had an idea a couple of days ago. The idea was to create a page on this website that would allow any number of people from anywhere in the world to draw upon it simultaneously, in effect creating a "virtual whiteboard" of sorts.

I have just finished a very basic implementation of this idea using the HTML5 canvas element, XHR and JavaScript. Please, go and take a look.

This is still in the early stages of development, so don't expect it to work properly and on all platforms yet!

WARNING: As this is a public space for drawing, please note that the content on the canvas is not my own and as such I take no responsibility for it. If you are easily offended then please take care as anybody could have left an unsavoury message or drawing!
