FastCanvas: PhoneGap plugin for implementing 2D canvas rendering for Android

FastCanvas is a Cordova/PhoneGap plugin which implements a very fast, 2D, mostly-canvas-compatible rendering surface for Android. It focuses on moving graphics around on the screen quickly and efficiently using hardware acceleration.

Unlike the HTML5 canvas, FastCanvas will encompass your entire screen and cannot be integrated with other elements in the DOM. It lives outside of the DOM in a separate rendering surface that fully covers all HTML content. More on how FastCanvas is displayed to the screen is available in the Architecture section. If you already have an application which uses a full screen DOM canvas, switching over to FastCanvas could be an easy way to provide a boost in performance, and consistency within that performance, to your mobile application or game.
