In this article, we are going to see how to add a vertical skew to the canvas-like text using FabricJS. The canvas means text written is movable, rotatable, resizable, and can be stretched. But in this article, we will add vertical skew. 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 use the skewY property to add vertical skew and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below.


 fabric.text(text :string, skewY: number); 

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:  

  • text: It specifies the text.
  • skewY: It specifies the vertical skew.

Program: This example uses FabricJS to add vertical skew to canvas-like text as given below.
