OpenVG bindings for node

node-openvg (OpenVG bindings for node.js)

This module implements bindings for OpenVG. It is targeted to the raspberry-pi.

It is heavily inspired in node-sdl and openvg.

Tested on node 0.8.22, 0.10.28. These are the latest node 0.8 and 0.10 minor versions with official arm-v6l builds.

Note: For now, due to the current TypedArray implementation on v8 there are no plans to port to iojs.

Just install via npm:

npm install openvg

This library makes a 1:1 mapping between OpenVG 1.1 (as currently bundled on raspian) and JS (via node.js/v8 bindings).

All array based APIs are implemented via JS typed arrays. As such, length and offsets are supposed to be handled by the typed array API.

Due to exceptional slowness of typed array creation (should be avoided at all costs either in node and in browser code), even when using subarray, the APIs that receive typed arrays as parameters (setXxxFV, setXxxIV, etc.) also present OL (Offset + Length) or O (Offset) variants.

Currently, handles to OpenVG resources aren't wrapped in JS/C++ objects. For this reason, special care must be taken to ensure propper destruction of these objects, as they wont be reclaimed by the garbage collector. This may be seen as a bonus since this explicit resource management may help improve performance, esp. in the scenario where this library is supposed to be used.

PS: There are plans to support this kind of wrapping in the future.

This library was created as a base for openvg-canvas, but can be used standalone.
