:: Details

We currently only have a rough outline for the reference for the CanvasRenderingContext2D interface, which implements the canvas 2D drawing context. We need to flesh this out and make it useful.

It also needs to be redone into our new style for this kind of documentation; see the documentation for the Telephony interface (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Telephony) for an example of how these should be structured.

Given the importance of games and 2D graphics for Firefox OS, it would be preferable to have this documentation completed soon.

We also need to document related things like CanvasImageSource, etc.

See http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/the-canvas-element.html#canvasrenderingcontext2d for the specification.

I created 60+ pages for the canvas API. I am calling this done.

Overhauled main page: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/CanvasRenderingContext2D

List of all pages for this interface:
