Easel JS is a Javascript library for working with the HTML5 Canvas element. The new Canvas element in HTML5 is powerful, but it can be difficult to work with. It has no internal concept of discrete display elements, so you are required to manage updates manually. The Easel Javascript library provides a full, hierarchical display list, a core interaction model, and helper classes to make working with Canvas much easier.

Easel JS was built by gskinner.com, and is released under the MIT license, which means you can use it freely for almost any purpose including commercial projects.
