HTML5 canvas SVG Path Tutorial

To create an SVG path with Konva, we can instantiate a Konva.Path() object.

Paths are most commonly used when we want to export an SVG Path into an HTML5 Canvas path, or if we want to manifest complex drawings as a data string rather than creating a custom shape.

For a full list of attributes and methods, check out the Konva.Path documentation.

If you want to draw full SVG image into the canvas take a look into How to draw SVG image post.
