Sample Screen shot

Check out the Demo App


For Yarn users

yarn @vhitech/canvas-sketch

For npm users

npm i @vhitech/canvas-sketch


You can Import the library as shown below

import Sketch, { TOOL } from "@vhitech/canvas-sketch";

Maintain a state variable that helps track the coordinates of your drawing. Define a method to set the state as well.

state = {
    drawingInput: []

setDrawingInput = data => {
    this.setState({ drawingInput: data });

If you are using React Hooks the code may look like this

const [drawingInput, setDrawingInput] = useState([]);  

Create a Sketch as shown below.

<div className={styles.sketch}>
    ref={e => (this.sketch = e)}

This would embed a HTML5 Canvas on which you will be able to draw. Check out our example code
