How to use this canvas?

Canvas Generation is an open library for canvas creators, enthusiasts and developers. We are not a productivity tool where you can use this tool. It is our mission to make the canvas library accessible to anybody for integration in their apps. Don't reinvent the wheel. Just use our free and open Canvas API. Our way of giving back :).
