<p>This application can send drawings to printers, where they will be printed out. <a href="http://printer.gofreerange.com/">Find out more about printers</a>. It's really just an example of how you can build a simple content provider for diminutive internet printers.</p>

<h2>How it works</h2>
<p>The paint app is very similar to the <a href="https://github.com/freerange/printer-mail">mail app</a>. Printers are registered by storing their print URL along side a nickname, which forms the URL in this app (e.g. <a href="/send/freerange">/send/freerange</a>).</p>
<p>When a drawing is "sent", the contents of the HTML5 canvas are serialised into a form field and stored in the database, associated with the printer record.</p>
-<p>The application then sends a request to the given print URL with the URL for that drawing (e.g. <a href="/pictures/6">/pictures/6</a>). The <a href="https://github.com/freerange/printer">printer backend server</a> then takes care of rasterising the image, and making it available to the right printer.</p>
