Enhance Your Website with my Free Embeddable Drawing App


Web Design

Over on Brush Ninja I’ve been working on a free embeddable drawing app called Paint Ninja. If you’ve ever used Procreate or the classic MS Paint from the ’90s, you’ll feel right at home with this.

A Fun Creative Tool

Brush Ninja has always been about creating fun and simple-to-use creative tools. Recently, I started developing a new drawing app. It’s basic but very free, just like the apps I used to create when I was learning to program.

Ever since I started programming, I’ve been making art apps. I remember trying to recreate MS Paint while learning Visual Basic in the ’90s. Later on, I’d make drawing apps in DarkBASIC, Blitz Plus and Javascript. This new app is the culmination of all that knowledge and experience, and I think it’s a lot of fun.

Introducing Paint Ninja

Last month, I took it a step further and made Paint Ninja embeddable. Now, anyone can embed it on their website for free! Imagine adding an interactive element to your site where users can draw directly on your page. It’s pretty cool!

How to Embed Paint Ninja

Embedding Paint Ninja on your website couldn’t be easier. Just copy and paste these two lines of code into your web page:

<script src="https://embed.brush.ninja/drawing.js"></script>

That’s it! You’ll have a fully functional drawing app right on your site.

Future Plans

It’s still early days for the app, but I’m already thinking about future updates. The next major addition I want to make is layers. Adding layers will make Paint Ninja much more complex than MS Paint and will open up new possibilities for creativity.

However, I’m not sure when this update will happen. For now, I’d love to see how people use Paint Ninja on their websites. Feel free to share your thoughts and feedback with me on social media—links are below.

Share your thoughts

I’d love to hear from you! Let me know if you embed Paint Ninja on your site and how you’re using it. Share your creations or any ideas you have for future updates.

Was it good/ useful/ a load of old rubbish? Let me know on Mastodon, or BlueSky (or Twitter X if you must).
