HTML5 Canvas Vector Graphics?
Please tell me what libraries for drawing and handling of vector graphics within HTML5 Canvas do you know?
There are a few options. I haven't used either of these libraries, but from what I can tell Cake seems generally more impressive, and imported, while also being three times as large. There is also the Burst Engine, currently an extension of processing.js, which is even smaller. I'm sure there are several more out there.

The successor to Raphaël. Written by the same developer but intended only for modern browsers.

"CAKE is a scenegraph library for the canvas tag. You could say that it's like SVG sans the XML and not be too far off."
"Paper.js is an open source vector graphics scripting framework that runs on top of the HTML5 Canvas."

NOTE: Future versions of Burst will also run as a Native Processing applications, allowing you to run a Burst animation in a Java applet or as a binary executable."
It also seems it was last updated in 2010.
