In this article, we are going to see how to add a stroke to the text canvas using FabricJS. The canvas means text written is movable, rotatable, resizable, and can be stretched. But in this article, we will add a stroke. Further, the text itself cannot be edited like a textbox.
To make it possible, we are going to use a JavaScript library called FabricJS. After importing the library using CDN, we will create a canvas block in the body tag which will contain our text. After this, we will initialize instances of Canvas and Text provided by FabricJS and use the stroke property to add a stroke and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the below example.

fabric.text(text :string, stroke:string); 

Parameters: This function accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below: 

  • text: This parameter specifies the text.
  • stroke: This parameter defines the color of the stroke.

Example: This example uses FabricJS to add stroke to text canvas as given below.


<!DOCTYPE html>
        Fabric.js | Text stroke Property
    <!-- Loading the FabricJS library -->
    <script src=
        <h1 style="color: green;">GeeksforGeeks</h1>
            Add stroke to canvas-like text with JavaScript
        <canvas id="canvas" width="600" height="200"
            style="border:1px solid #000000;">
            // Create a new instance of Canvas
            var canvas = new fabric.Canvas("canvas");
            // Create a new Text instance
            var text = new fabric.Text('GeeksforGeeks', {
                stroke: 'green'
            // Render the text on Canvas
