Description

Raphaël for Grails - Cross-browser vector graphics the easy way.

The Plugin provides the JavaScript Vector Library Raphaël. It offers the un-minified version of the JavaScript-Library in the Development-Stage and the minified elseways. It integrates nicely with the resources plugin.

What is it?

Raphaël is a small JavaScript library that should simplify your work with vector graphics on the web. If you want to create your own specific chart or image crop and rotate widget, for example, you can achieve it simply and easily with this library. Raphaël ('ræfeɪəl) uses the SVG W3C Recommendation and VML as a base for creating graphics. This means every graphical object you create is also a DOM object, so you can attach JavaScript event handlers or modify them later. Raphaël’s goal is to provide an adapter that will make drawing vector art compatible cross-browser and easy. Raphaël currently supports Firefox 3.0+, Safari 3.0+, Chrome 5.0+, Opera 9.5+ and Internet Explorer 6.0+.

Installation:

grails install-plugin raphael

Usage:

If you want to use it with the resources plugin you can use the resources TagLib to include the raphael module in your gsp.

<r:require module="raphael" />

For developers that don't use the resources plugin the raphael plugin also provides a TagLib that conviniently adds the raphael js library to your gsp. It offers the same feature set regarding minified in non-dev-stage vs. un-minified in dev-stage.
