raphael.serialize.js Fix for unsupported namespacing in Raphael 2.0 Nov 17, 2011



This is a plugin to raphaeljs.com, a javascript library for working with SVG on the web. This plugin gives functions for saving SVG data and loading it back into the canvas.

Currently supports JSON and basic shapes.


Just include the raphael.serialize.js after you include the raphael.js library.


The plugin extends the RaphaelJS object.

var paper = Raphael('yourcanvas', '300', '300');
// Do some drawing
var json = paper.serialize.json(); // saves as json
paper.serialize.load_json(json); // load it back

Thanks to Ben Barnett www.benbarnett.net/ for his work on serializing paths.
