How to rotate a text canvas using Fabric.js ?

  • Last Updated : 19 May, 2020

In this article, we are going to see how to rotate a text canvas using FabricJS. The canvas means text written is movable and can be stretched according to requirement. 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 angle property to rotate the text to the required angle and render the Canvas on the Text as given in the example below.


fabric.Text(text, angle: Number); 

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

  • text: It specifies the text to be written.
  • options: It specifies the additional options to be applied and we are using the angle option for this example.

Program: This example uses FabricJS to create simple editable text canvas.
