It is an attempt to make React work with the HTML5 canvas library. The goal is to have a similar declarative markup as normal React and also a similar data-flow model.
react-konva is not supported in the React Native environment.
Currently you can use all
Konva nodes and shapes as React components and all
Konva events are supported on them in the same way.
Note: you can find a lot of demos and examples for using Konva there: https://konvajs.org/. Really, just go there and take a look at what Konva can do for you. You will be able to do the same with react-konva, too.
react-konva is like DOM for
npm install react-konva konva --save
react-canvas is a completely
different react plugin. It allows you to draw DOM-like objects (images, texts)
on canvas elements in a very performant way. It is NOT about drawing graphics, but
react-konva serves exactly this purpose: drawing complex graphics on a
<canvas> element from within
react-art allows you to draw graphics on
a page. It also supports SVG output. But it has no support of events on
Vanilla canvases can be faster since
react-konva comes with two layers of abstractions: (1) The
Konva framework is on top of canvas and (2)
React is on top of
Konva. For many applications it’s performance is still very good. The purpose of
react-konva is to reduce the complexity of your application and to use a well-known declarative way for drawing on canvases.
