NowDraw - A NodeJS Real-time drawing demo

Copyright 2011, Media Upstream (http://mediaupstream.com)
Licensed under The MIT License (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php)


I built NowDraw as an excuse to play around with Node and NowJS http://nowjs.org. It's a bare-bones collaborative drawing application, complete with two drawing tools: lines and clouds and a clear button. Support for Mobile / iOS included.

You can demo the application here: http://draw.mediaupstream.com
