Canvas-based WEB IDE from Mozilla Labs…

I just caught wind of this…

It’s called Bespin.

I’ve been working on a project in my Software Engineering class – we’re supposed to build a web app that acts as an interactive family-tree viewer.  And it has to use the CANVAS element.

Canvas element you say?  That’s right.  Not SVG….CANVAS.  That means that Internet Explorer is right out, and it also means building or finding an event handling library for Canvas – because right out of the gate, Canvas doesn’t do event handling.

Canvas just…displays.

So look at Bespin.  Holy crap.  That’s pretty serious use of Canvas.
