gury (v 0.1) - A jQuery inspired canvas utility library

by Ryan Sandor Richards

Gury (pronounced "jury") is a simple to use utility library for drawing, animating, and managing HTML5 canvas tags. The goal is to support the HTML5 Canvas API with a framework that allows for faster/easier application development.

It was built with simplicity in mind and its usage was modeled in the image of jQuery. For instance you can initialize, style, and animate an entire scene in a single expression using chaining.

Example

Here is an example of some gury code to make a simple spinning square animation.

$g('screen').size(100, 100).add({
    theta: 0, 
    draw: function(ctx) {
        ctx.save();
        ctx.translate(50, 50);
        ctx.rotate(this.theta);
        ctx.fillStyle = "#ada";
        ctx.fillRect(-32, -32, 64, 64);
        ctx.restore();
        this.theta += Math.PI / 120;
    }
}).play(16);

Neat, eh?
