HTML5 Canvas Shape select, resize and rotate

Transformer is a special kind of Konva.Group. It allows you easily resize and rotate any node or set of nodes.

To enable it you need to:

  1. Create new instance with new Konva.Transformer()
  2. Add it to layer
  3. attach to node with transformer.nodes([shape]);
  4. Update the layer with layer.batchDraw()

Note: Transforming tool is not changing width and height properties of nodes when you resize them. Instead it changes scaleX and scaleY properties.

Instructions: Try to resize and rotate shapes. Click on empty area to remove selection. Use SHIFT or CTRL to add/remove shapes into/from selection. Try to select area on a canvas.
