HTML5 Canvas Konva Scale Animation Tutorial


To animate a shape’s scale with Konva, we can create a new animation with
Konva.Animation, and define a function which modifies the shape’s scale with each animation frame.

In this tutorial, we’ll scale the x and y component of a blue hexagon, the y component
of a yellow hexagon, and the x component of a red hexagon about an axis positioned on the right side of the shape.

Instructions: drag and drop the hexagons as they animate

For a full list of attributes and methods, check out the Konva.Animation documentation.
