Raphael Resources

Written by: Alain Thibodeau

Raphaël is a JavaScript library written by Dmitry Baranovskiy that generates SVG and VML. Recently, I’ve been using this library for creating dynamic SVGs. Although there are a few quirks with using Raphaël, I found that it was a relatively easy library to work with. If you need to generate vector images on the web check out Raphaël to see if it fits your needs.

Below is a list of Raphaël resources that helped me along the way.
