Export vector graphics to HTML5 Canvas from Adobe Illustrator

Ai->Canvas is a free plug-in for Adobe Illustrator CS3, CS4, and CS5 that enables easy export of vector and bitmap artwork and even animation directly from within Adobe Illustrator to HTML/JavaScript that you can use in your own applications.

Ai->Canvas is able to export complex shapes, fill styles, line styles, gradients, transparency, native text, bitmaps, pattern fills, symbols, drop shadows, and more. All artwork is converted to JavaScript drawing commands, and the resulting code can be copied to your own application for further customization. This is amazing, because it allows even non-programmers and designers to create HTML5 ready animations without writing a single line of code!

Plenty of examples and extended documentation is available on the website. Checkout the video introduction.

Ai->Canvas works with OS X, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.


  1. Very great plugin,but I wonder is there any standalone app for exporting vector to canvas code.

Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event.
