NodeJS support for EaselJS

A few months back, one of our developers ported EaselJS to run on Node using a 3rd-party drawing API. This provides a server-side solution for rendering EaselJS content. This could be used for something like generating images for a user profile or other content.

For example, on Technitone, we needed to store a snapshot of a music pattern to be displayed in the gallery. At the time, we just used raw canvas APIs to do it, but now we could simply use the familiar EaselJS approach.

Node-Easel has been added to our Tools page on the CreateJS.com website. You can checkout, download, or fork the code for Node-Easel here. Check out the readme for examples. Note that Node-Easel requires Cairo Graphics.

Thanks to Wes for his awesome work!
