Examples

Static colored rects with no draw loop:

var Canvas = require('../');

var canvas = new Canvas(50, 100)
  , ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');

ctx.fillStyle = 'red';
ctx.fillRect(5, 5, 20, 10);

ctx.fillStyle = 'blue';
ctx.fillRect(27, 5, 20, 10);

ctx.fillStyle = 'yellow';
ctx.fillRect(49, 5, 20, 10);

console.log('\n\n\n');
ctx.resetState();

Some random moving rects with a draw loop:

var Canvas = require('../')
  , size = process.stdout.getWindowSize();

process.on('SIGINT', function(){
  ctx.reset();
  process.nextTick(function(){
    process.exit();
  });
});

process.on('SIGWINCH', function(){
  size = process.stdout.getWindowSize();
  canvas.width = size[0];
  canvas.height = size[1];
});

var canvas = new Canvas(size[10], size[1])
  , ctx = canvas.getContext('2d')
  , x = 1
  , sx = 2
  , x2 = 1
  , sx2 = 1;

ctx.hideCursor();
setInterval(function(){
  ctx.clearRect(0, 0, canvas.width, canvas.height);
  ctx.strokeStyle = 'blue';
  ctx.strokeRect(1, 1, canvas.width - 1, canvas.height - 1);
  ctx.strokeStyle = 'green';
  ctx.strokeRect(x += sx, 2, 30, 5);
  ctx.fillStyle = 'yellow';
  ctx.fillRect(x2 += sx2, 5, 10, 5);
  ctx.moveTo(0, 10);
  if (x + 30 >= canvas.width || x <= 1) sx = -sx;
  if (x2 + 10 >= canvas.width || x2 <= 1) sx2 = -sx2; 
}, 1000 / 20);
