In this article, we are going to see how to add stroke width 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 width. Further, the text itself cannot be edited like a textbox.
Approach: 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 create a stroke using stroke property and further use the strokeWidth property to add stroke width and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below.


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

Parameters: This function accepts three parameters as mentioned above and described below:  

  • text: It specifies the text.
  • strokeWidth: It specifies the amount of width of stroke.
  • stroke: It specifies the stroke color.

Program: This example uses FabricJS to add stroke width of canvas-like text as given below.
