// rectangle in bottom right of the stage
var rect = new Konva.Rect({

function fitStageIntoParentContainer() {
var container = document.querySelector('#stage-parent');

// now we need to fit stage into parent
var containerWidth = container.offsetWidth;
// to do this we need to scale the stage
var scale = containerWidth / stageWidth;

stage.width(stageWidth * scale);
stage.height(stageHeight * scale);
stage.scale({ x: scale, y: scale });

// adapt the stage on any window resize
window.addEventListener('resize', fitStageIntoParentContainer);
