HTML5 Canvas to Data URL Tutorial

How to export canvas content into image?

To get the data URL of the stage with Konva, we can use the toDataURL()
method which requires a callback function for Stage (for other nodes callback is not required).
In addition, we can also pass in a mime type such as image/jpeg and a quality value that ranges between 0 and 1.
We can also get the data URLs of specific nodes, including layers, groups, and shapes.

Note: The toDataURL() method requires that any images drawn onto the canvas
are hosted on a web server with the same domain as the code executing it.
If this condition is not met, a SECURITY_ERR exception is thrown.

Instructions: Drag and drop the rectangle and then click on the save button to get the composite data url and open the resulting image in a new window
