Contrary to what Adobe might tell you, Flash is not required for beautiful user interfaces. The Raphaël JavaScript library uses SVG and VML to create highly interactive interfaces that are compatible with all major browsers, even IE back to version 6. Better yet, the elements Raphaël creates are just a normal part of the DOM, and you can use jQuery and other frameworks to attach event handlers to them. In this talk, we'll discuss the Raphaël API, how to attach event handlers to its elements with JavaScript, and some of the interesting UI tricks you can pull off with Raphaël. Prepare to have your mind blown as you see how interactive Raphaël can make your site, all without leaving the comfort of JavaScript.
